The Joy of Magic

I plan to share a magic video each day.

Mattie's PBJ Trick

This trick is a tribute to Mattie Brown.  Mattie and I shared many magical moments together as he learned tricks to perform for doctors, nurses, child life specialists and fellow patients.  This trick has a special place in my heart because Mattie and I learned and performed it together.  Please visit https://www.mattiemiracle.com/ to learn more about Mattie, the incredible work of his amazing parents, and the virtual walk on Sunday, May 17th.  Please note that the original trick that Mattie and I created featured peanut boogers instead of peanut butter (Mattie liked a lot of gross stuff like bugs and other creepy crawlies) but I did not have ready access to green slime!)  Of all the tricks posted here I think Mattie would have enjoyed Building Challenge the most because he loved creating and building things!

I am excited to share a video from a guest magician!  Dr. Herb Hughes is a friend of mine who graduated in the class of 1976.  I taught his sons many years ago, and when he came in for parent/teacher conferences we would always share magic tricks with each other.  And we still do!
