it comes to teaching your kids magic, and your child is actually
really serious about being a magician remember to teach them the
first law of magic:
A magician never reveals his or her secrets!
If your kids want to astound their friends and keep the mystique and impressiveness to a maximum, it is a good idea to inspire them to keep the recipe to their magic tricks to themselves and keep their mouths tightly closed in order to keep the mystery and surprise in the magic tricks.

be certain that your child will become a great magician and go
