Learn this fun Magic Wand Trick!

The Effect:

The magician displays a tiny magic wand to the audience. Before their very eyes, the magic wand magically doubles in size! Presto!


The Secret:

The magician hides an extra piece of the magic wand in his hand. This extra tube looks like the end of the wand but it secretly slides.

The magician starts by hiding most of the wand behind their hand, hidden from the audience.

The magician holds the sliding tube with his/her fingers and slowly pull the full-sized wand straight up. To the audience, this appears like the wand is growing!

Here are all the supplies you'll need to make the magic wand

What you'll need:

Our magic wand template includes a rectangle of white paper that can be used for the secret magic tool (magicians call this a gimmick) that makes this trick work.

All we need to do is cut it out and add a dab of glue! Watch here:

(SECRET) Here's how to make the hidden magic wand

It's important that you wrap the paper around the center of the magic wand, where it's widest. This will make sure that your special magic wand gimmick can be quickly removed.

Additional Notes:

Trim the extra secret magic wand piece down to a size that works for your hands.

**Always be careful when using scissors and sharp objects.

Professional Touches for Advanced Wizards:

If you wanted to perform this trick and then hand the magic wand out for inspection, the magician would somehow need to get rid of the secret extra piece. Magicians call this ditching.

Here's how to get rid of the secret magic gimmick

The magician switches hands with the wand and ditches the extra wand part.

When changing hands put the extra secret piece in a perfect position to secretly hold onto it in your palm. Keep this hand still and give the wand with your other hand.
