Trick - Teaching: Self-esteem and showing your talents (Magic umbrella)
Do you know the Magic Umbrella?
This is a brilliant magic trick, that can help you to teach children, teenagers and adults on self-esteem and showing your talents
This is probably one of my favourite magic tricks. I currently use it as an ending to two of my Christian children theatre shows. I like it because it is so easy, but it always gives a 'wow' effect.
You take the red umbrella out of the tube. When you open the umbrella you can show that it is a normal one. You close the umbrella and put it back into the tube. Show eight several coloured silks to the audience. Then, put them into a bag, and suddenly the bag changes into the top of the umbrella and all the silks have disappeared. Pick up the tube and pull the umbrella out. Now the top has been disappeared and instead of the top, the eight silks are hanging on the umbrella.
In my show and at the end of a school assembly I use this trick to show the children that they don't have hide behind the words: "I can't do anything. Who am I?" Instead they can show their talents.
