Ash Trick
Effect: A name is written on a notepad by the spectator, the paper is torn off unseen by the magician, crumpled up and placed in an ashtray.
It is then set alight. The ashes are then rubbed on the magicians arm and the name of the person written on the paper mysteriously appears. Preparation: You will need a small notepad, pen, ashtray, lighter and a small piece of soap or wax. How to do: Ask the one of the spectators to write the name of a person on a notepad. Then tear off the sheet of paper, crumple it up and place it in the ashtray, where the magician then sets the paper alight. The magician takes the notepad from the spectator and is able to see the imprint of the name written on the next sheet of the notepad. Looking at the pad should not be made obvious and some misdirection carried out while he carefully Take the small piece of wax or soap and writes the name on the imprint on his arm or hand (This action should not be visible to anyone ). The magician can then take some ash from the ashtray and rub it over the wax where it will stick and create an impression of the spectator’s words to their amazement.
Note: This is a easy trick but depends on the magician creating an atmosphere with an entertaining routine and patter about black magic to enhance the effect and create misdirection to allow him time to pull off the trick.

Coffee 2 Coin
Set up: Get one of those coffee machine dispensed cups made of waxed paper and preferably with a pattern on the outside. Remove the bottom of the cup about an inch up from the bottom with a modeling knife or scissors and then place the cup back together by gently sliding the top half of the cup into the base using a slight twisting action if needed. Stack the cup three quarters full with coins. Pack the coins in tightly and then pour in a little coffee, enough to cover the coins completely. Coffee works best because it's so dark and will hide the coins. The cup should now look like a normal cup of coffee and is now ready to present to an audience. How to do: Comment on how the patterns on the side of the cup are magic symbols. Holding the top half of the cup with one hand, gently push up the bottom half of the cup with a slight screwing action with your other hand, then shake the cup. As the coins “unsettle” the coffee will spill between the cracks and the coins appear. This trick can be done with any cup of the waxed paper type that are usually found in vending machines. Be careful not to use hot coffee. Take care when using the modelling knife as it is sharp, even better, if your a kid, get an adult to cut it for you.

Easy Coin Vanish Magic Trick
A coin is placed onto the table and it vanishes. How to do: Put the coin onto the table with your left hand. Say something like "check this out" and reach over with your right hand. Then press down on the coin with your middle, index and third finger with your hand and arm parallel with the table. Slide the coin towards you remembering that it should be completely covered up. Slide the coin off the table so it falls on your lap without the spectator seeing. Touch your thumb to your middle finger as if you are picking up the coin as it reaches the edge of the table. Keeping your fingers still closed, stare at where the coin should be as you slowly move your hand away from you back to about 6 inches from where the coin originally was. Start moving your thumb in a circular motion as if the coin is disappearing. Slowly turn your hand around and spread your fingers apart. Now the rest is up to you.

Thought for a day:

What matters is not the length of the wand but the magic in the stick...
