Does anyone have any cool routines scripts for this effect?

I do kids shows and trying to gather ideas.

Thank you.

Sammy Smith has a great kid-friendly routine called Ball Brothers' Traveling Circus in his book, Big Laughs for Little People. It’s a really fun routine!

P.S. The other stuff in this book is wonderful too.

I really like the routine from Practical Magic's site. In fact, I purchased their Stratosphere Deluxe simply because I wanted to use their routine. The prop, by the way, is a great solid piece and worth the price over the standard metal and joker box (the box I never used anyway.)

If you use the U.F. Grant/MAK Magic similarly sized props (Strat-O-Spheres & Crystal Silk Cylinder) you can combine these elements so your audience sees just one cover and one one clear tube; this enables you to perform a silk dying effect--three white silks to three colored silks-- change the 3 colored silks into three colored balls and then go into your regular Strat-O-Spheres routine.

In my school shows, when I did Strat-O-Spheres (I'm retired now), I patter about following directions, pointing out that the red ball has a problem following directions--namely to stay at the top of the tube. At the end, instead of using the box that comes with the trick to vanish the red ball, I end the routine by putting the red ball back into my prop/suitcase, telling it: "You can come back when you're ready to follow directions!" When the red ball _does_ reappear, I tell the kids: "You know why he came back? Because he's ready to follow directions." So I simply put the the three balls into the covered tube in the right order. When I lift the cover, the three balls are in proper order, and I tell the kids "Give the red ball a big hand for following directions." Surprisingly, the kids applaud enthusiastically for the red ball following directions.

Silly Billy's last book that is a compilation of over 100 routines has one that is a Christmas themed. It talks about Rudolph and racing with two other reindeers.

You will get so much more than a great stratosphere routine. You learn how to be entertaining.
And isn't that what its all about.

Best of luck

Yes, U.F. Grant invented Strat-O-Spheres. First marketed in 1962.

If you can find a copy of this book, "MAGIC OF THE WORLD" by John Mulholland, he has routine in there called "Der Rote Geist" which is German for the Red Ghost. The routine uses a cardboard tube and round blocks of wood instead of the Strat-O-Spheres balls. He explains how a magician in Vienna told a story about a ghost's ability to go through walls, locked doors, and every other kind of barrier. On the final demonstration, I put the red ball in the box, which I really don't like - will probably switch to a devil's hank.. I have the kids say BOO as loud as they can to scare the ghost. When the box is opened, a 12" silk flutters out. Hmmmm...You guys did not say BOO loud enough, let's try it again. 12" silk vanished via TT. Red ball reappears in Strat-O-Spheres tube. I am in the process of making the props as described in the book so it "Packs Flat and Plays Big". Be sure to put a thin piece of foam or a think piece of indoor/outdoor carpet in the box so the ball does not make a noise when it is dropped in.
