Learn Magic with your Child

Learn Magic with your Child

There can be very few kids who haven’t tried to learn some trick or another in order to impress their family and friends. In fact, I actually find that during a magic lesson, the parent is itching to try the magic tricks alongside their child. It provides a great bonding experience and builds happy memories for your young one.

 

 

Why do kids love magic so much?

An American psychologist named Dr Dave Verhaagen is a self-confessed lover of magic. Given the fact that he spent his childhood doing magic tricks for his family and friends, he has an obvious interest in why people love magic so much. He has narrowed this down to: delight, wonder, and superiority. Many of us want to believe that magic is real, which is why we are delighted and awed by a good magic trick; whereas others want to work out how the trick is done so it gives them a sense of superiority. Either way, they love magic!

 

 

Magic is amazing

I’ve been booked to give magic lessons to children many times. Whilst I’d like to think that the Dynamo, David Copperfield or Chris Whitelock of the future is having his or her first taste of magic as a result of my lesson, I suspect that most of these kids would spend a little while practising their new skills before moving on to try something different.

So wouldn’t it be great if you could play an active part in helping your kids develop their skills? Your enthusiasm for their enthusiasm could help them develop their abilities. The way to do that, of course, is to join in when they have their magic lesson. That way you’ll know exactly what they’ve been taught and how to help them practise.

Of course, a sneakier and fun way of impressing your kids even more is to take a secret magic lesson yourself before theirs so you’re even more in the know, and possibly even master a different trick…
