There are many easy magic tricks for kids to learn and perform, including the magnetic pencil, coin magic trick, rubber band pencil, jumping paper clips and the vanishing bead. The pepper trick is another simple magic trick that is performed with a glass of water and pepper.

Practice is imperative to perfecting any magic trick. Practicing in front of a mirror helps to see the how trick plays out as it does in front of an audience.
