Cool Card Trick To ‘Wow’ The Kids

Very cool card trick to impress the kids and keep them occupied with over the holidays!


We were at my Dad’s and it was tipping it down, so he whipped out a pack of cards and did a card trick with them.  They were totally amazed by it and just couldn’t work out how he knew which card they’d picked!

I decided to video the ‘how to’ bit so you can try this card trick for yourselves if you don’t know it already.  The kids can then do it on each other and their mates.

This is my first video and I have absolutely no idea how to edit them, so please excuse the roughness and the evening lighting 🙂

    Great trick! This will definitely impress the kids! I used to love doing ‘magic’ as a child, but I have never tried card tricks, I used to have a magic trick where I balance a cup on top of a trick card that had a bit at the back that folded out to keep it upright. I don’t think my audience of family members were particularly impressed by my skills though.
    Thanks so much for linking up to #HowtoSunday 🙂 x
