Last night as we had some friends over for dinner and play, the kids decided to put on a magic show for us.
First up, the grim reaper and fairy assistant (you can't make this stuff up!) wowed us with their magical prowess.
Next, the whole crew put together a multi-phase act complete with appearing coins, shredded paper that reconnected and handmade paper wands.
Even the baby "disappeared" under a large playsilk.
In place of the "credits" was a sign requesting that, in return for the wonderful show, one of their friends be allowed to spend the night. Hmmm... ;)
I so enjoy watching my kids take an interest in something foreign to my own experiences and throw themselves headlong into the process. Some cute websites we found along the way are listed below if any other kids' want to learn some magic.
