I may have missed it, but I'm surprised no one has mentioned using a squeeker. I'll borrow a kids crayon (restaurant gives them out). Do a cigarette vanish move and produce it from my elbow. I then make the claim that elbows are magical places. I ask to test the kids elbow and see if his/hers works too. I then reach to their elbow and poke it with my index finger and make their elbow squeek. They LOVE it. Even as young as 2yo kids get it. Try their other elbow, brother, Mom, etc...doesn't work on adults or doesn't work on boys, etc.

I second the chop cup idea. I ask if they like to play hide and seek. Who doesn't right!? I say let's play hide and seek with this little ball and a cup. I use Jamie Grant's handling as published on his blog. No table is required.

I ask the kids to tell me the color and number they see on this card. I then ask if they've ever pretended to be a superhero. I say, well...cards play pretend too. This card looks like a 6h and it sounds like a 6h, it even smells like a 6h. But it's really not a 6h. Here, you rub it on the table (top change). Okay, now turn it over. See, it was really a 2c that was pretending to be a 6h.

Ok everyone...now go make more merriment.

P.S. I'm 100% with the comments about the magic doesn't matter as much if they like you.
P.P.S. Thanks to Remagicon for the ACR idea. I've heard that one before but forgotten to implement it. Will try it tomorrow.

Thank you Robert and Dan! I appreciate the response. I use the Cardtoons, but not as often as I should. I start at 6:30 tonight. I'll try opening with it.

I love the Clone effect, Robert! I never saw that before. Don't have room for another deck though. Do you guys wear a vest while strolling? I think I need one. 10 years of strolling on and off. It's about time I get one eh?
