Easy Magic Tricks


Magnetic Pencil #1

Magic Category: Prop Magic Trick

Supplies Needed: A pencil

Summary: Holding a pencil with one hand, you grab your wrist with the other. The pencil seems to let just levitate under your hand when you let go of the pencil.

Secret: You use the pointer finger to hold the pencil.

The trick is in how you hold your wrist.

Set up: Say the pencil sticks to your hand when you grab your wrist. Place a pencil or pen onto a table. Grab your wrist with one hand(we’ll call it the ‘Wrist Hand’) and the other hand (we’ll call it the ‘Flat Hand’) will be placed flat over the pencil.


Step 1: With your palm down on the ‘Flat Hand’ and the other hand grabbing your wrist - bring the ‘Flat Hand’ hand down over the pencil.

Step 2: While bringing the ‘Flat Hand’ down, secretly move your pointer finger from the ‘Wrist Grabbing Hand’ under the palm of your ‘Flat Hand’.

Step 3: With the ‘Flat Hand’ resting on the pencil, shove your pointer finger under the pencil on the table. Hold the pencil against the palm of your ‘Flat Hand’ with the pointer finger of your ‘Wrist Grabbing Hand’. Make sure to have your palm flat down and they can’t see the pointer finger.

Step 4: Now lift your hands. The pencil seems to magically stick to your hand while you palm is flat.

Step 5: Only 3 fingers are grabbing your wrist instead of 4 fingers. This is not a problem as long as you perform the trick quickly and skillfully.

Step 6: As you bring your hand down to the table, quickly and smoothly slip you’re your finger from under the pencil. Wrap the finger around your wrist as if it was always there. Work on what position your finger (now on your wrist) looks most natural and brings the least amount of attention to it. You can even slap your hand on the table slightly to bring attention away from your finger being quickly moved.

Step 7: Now the pencil is on the table, so you can show the palm of your hand revealing nothing can be holding the pencil.

Step 8: Alternate Effect: Click play to watch the video on the alternate effect to this trick.
Show the Pencil in the your Hand -Palm up:
Basically, you are using the momentum and centripetal force in a semi-circular motion to flip the palm of your ‘Flat Hand’ up without the pointer finger under it.
Show the pencil magically stuck to your Hand -Palm Down:
Using the momentum and centripetal force in a bigger semi-circular motion to hold the pencil against the palm of your ‘Flat Hand’ while flipping it over again – Slip your pointer finger under the pencil again when you come down to reveal the illusion that the pencil is stuck to the palm of your ‘Flat Hand’ again.
Work hard on the small nuances that work best for you in this Alternate Effect.
