Make your own magic wand

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

Sticks

Paintbrushes

Paint 

WHAT TO DO:

Chose the colour paints you want on your magic wand. Paint your stick black as a background but leave the edges unpainted. When the paint has dried, you can start painting with the other colours – playful patterns and squiggles for an extra hocus pocus. As soon as all the paint has dried, it’s time to start doing magic tricks!

Conjure with colours

Abracadabra! We know how to conjure with colours. Using just red, blue, yellow, white and black paint, you can use your wand to conjure up any colour you want!

YOU'LL NEED:

Toothpicks

Sticky tape

Magic wand

WHAT YOU DO:

Use the sticky tape to tape the toothpicks onto one of your thumb nails. Make a fist and let the toothpicks stick up as if you were holding them. Say ‘Sim sala bim’ and open your hand to show all the palm of your hand – you’ve used magic to make the toothpicks disappear!
