How to Perform a ghostly straw magic trick
Do you believe in ghosts? Well you will after this magic trick. Learn how to wow the crowd with this ghoulish trick. You will need a straw and a smooth table surface. 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. Place the straw on the table.
2. Place your finger on the table and begin to make a circular motion around the straw, without touching it.
3. Bend your head down closely towards the straw, as if to watch it closer. This builds the misdirection.
4. As people begin to wonder if anything is going to happen, slowly stop moving your finger in the circular motion and instead place it in front of the straw and move your finger away from you.
5. At the same time, lightly blow on the straw, which will make it move towards your moving finger. It should look as if the straw is eerily following your finger.
