You're guaranteed to fool all of your friends with this fantastic magic trick! So grab some ketchup, but hold the fries and get ready to perform along with Ryan Oakes. You will need a bottle of water, a ketchup pocket, and a glass of water. Sometimes we use materials that require adult supervision... like scissors so make sure you have friends and family around whenever you do magic tricks. 1. Preparation: Take the label off of the bottle and find a packet of ketchup that's not too full. To be sure you're using one that will float, test out a few packets using a glass of water.
2. Now, fill the bottle up with water, leaving about an inch of air at the top.
3. Performance: Fold the ketchup packet in half and push it into the bottle. It should float. Screw the cap back onto the bottle.
4. Pick up the bottle and hold it at the bottom with your right hand. If you lightly squeeze the bottle the packet will fall to the bottom. If you release the pressure, it will float back to the top! The trick is to squeeze the bottle while pretending to control the movements with a wave of your other hand!
