FYI: At the "Family Dollar" stores in SW Michigan at least in their toy section they have two great deals I've found. They are selling Fantasma trick decks (one is a marked deck, the other is a changing deck) WITH an instructional DVD included with many tricks on it for the whopping price of $2. Or, you can get for $5 the complete Fantasma Magic Kit which includes an instructional DVD, cups and balls, pencil frame, boomerangs, wand, coin paddle, trick quarter, candy tube and much more. Wow. I have no idea how you can manufacture and ship all this for $5, let alone make a profit on it. So these might be "quality" handouts to any young volunteers that you use in your programs- much better than the "big dollar" handout that I have used in the past.

Those are some great suggestions. Thanks.

I used a handout for a long time that was illustrated and had several effects they could do/make. It was a legal sized page folded twice so the ind result was 3.5 by 8.5. One panel, the back when folded up, had contact information on it. These were quite popular with the kids.

The Origami Effect just out by Andrew Mayne can leave an audience member with an origami rabbit (have had a blast making those) and even has one effect where it looks like you are doing a torn and restored newspaper effect only to have it end up as a large origami rabbit which becomes a "Rocky the Raccoon" type bit. That too can be handed out.

For yeasr I have given out Adair's Butterfly. Though not magic, it is magical to most spectarors, especially kids. It cost pennies and gives them something to show to friends without revealing any magic.
