Card tricks are fun. They just are. It’s a fact. Some of them are really complicated, and some, like this one, are very simple. We are going to show you some that are a little tougher, but let’s start off with something easy! You only need 9 cards and the ability to spell – or someone around you that will help you spell! Take a look at this easy card trick for kids! (This video was taken with an iPhone…sorry for not the best quality!)
Here’s the trick broken down into steps:
Place three cards in three different piles. (3 piles of 3 cards)
Have the person pick a pile. Turn this pile over to see the bottom card. This is their card. Turn the stack face down again. Stack the piles and put the pile they chose on top.
Now, spell out the name of the card. For example, for a King of Diamonds, you’ll spell out K-I-N-G. Put those four cards on bottom of the stack. (If it’s a two of clubs, spell out T-W-O and put those cards on bottom.)
Now spell O-F. Put these two card on the bottom.
Finally, spell the suit. D-I-A-M-O-N-D-S. (Or whatever suit YOUR card is!)
Now spell magic – M-A-G-I..and turn over the C. Is this your card?!
Try it out and see if it works for you!
