Use clear adhesive tape to attach some thread to the top of the pencil. The thread must be attached to the metal portion that is under the eraser.
Hold the pencil in your hand. Make a loop in the other end of the thread, and attach it to a button on your clothing.
Ensure that the thread is taut when you partially extend your hand. Experiment with the thread’s length to achieve this.
Put the pencil in a bottle with the eraser facing down. Tighten the thread that is attached to the pencil by drawing your hand away from your body. This levitates the pencil.
To lower the pencil, draw your hand toward your body. This movement loosens the thread.
Carry out the magic trick frequently to practice the hand movement that makes the pencil levitate.
