Magic Tricks For Beginners (part 1 of 2)

There are many magic tricks for beginners that require just a bit of time and patience to learn. But mostly such magic tricks really does not require that much effort in terms of skills. There are certain magic tricks that work with just a bit of showmanship and presentation.

One magic trick that beginners can try out can be the vanishing coin trick. All you need is a coin and a table to place it with. This magic trick for beginners will need some bit of showmanship in order to be baffling enough. What you need to do is to put a coin in the  center of the table. While seated by the table, try to get the attention of friends or anyone who cares to see your magic trick.

The important thing on this trick is to have some bit of confidence. You will need to press on the coin and let it slide towards you. But the way to do this is to keep your index, middle and ring finger always close together. You will use the three fingers to cover the coin as you bring it towards you. Press the coin with your middle finger and then slowly bring it towards y6ou. As it nears the edge of the table, have the coin fall into your lap. The cover that your three fingers close together will make it go unnoticed if done correctly.

The next thing you do is that you try to bring your thumb towards your middle finger to create an effect as if you are holding something. Try to bring up your hand towards you and away from the table but still carefully keeping your fingers close together.  And as you do so, try to make circular motions of your thumb with your middle finger. Then slowly turn your hands towards your audience and at the same time spreading out your fingers. The effect will be a surprise for your friends in that the coin has vanished in thin air.
