What will my child learn by being an assistant magician? Parents may not verbally ask this question, but I know in their heads they are thinking this. Each child is different and some may learn more than others while being my assistant magician, but generally speaking there are at least three things your child will learn.
- Your child will learn how to perform a magic trick in front of an audience. I give him/her a couple of things to look like a magician. Then I will walk them through how to do the magic trick. The trick is very easy to do with only a brief description needed in order to do it. I will then make sure after your son/daughter perform the trick the audience claps for them.
- I will teach your child what to say. A lot of children just like to do the trick silently, but I try and encourage them to tell the audience what they are doing, so the audience can follow along and understand what the magician is doing.
- Your child will feel what it is like to receive praise and joy for having performed a magic trick in front of their family and friends. Making other people smile, laugh, and amazed is what being a magician is all about.
I believe your child should be the “STAR” of his/her party. So I make sure that they help me perform as many tricks as possible. At the end of the show, your son/daughter will get to keep a magic trick that they have performed. It is my way of saying, “Thank you for being my assistant magician!”
