Cool Magic Tricks Revealed

Jumping Rubber Band

In this magic trick, the rubber band mysteriously gets shifted from your little finger and ring finger, to the first and middle finger of the same hand and back again. You can use a normal rubber band or a hair band. To begin hold your hand up and wrap the rubber band around your little and ring finger. Make sure the rubber band is right at the base of the fingers, as the back of your hand faces the audience. With the other hand, stretch the rubber band and fold your first, little, ring and middle finger into the loop. Rest your fingers properly in the loop by folding them against your palm. Now quickly, open your palm, removing the little and ring finger first, so that the rubber band jumps to the other two fingers. With a little bit of practice, you will be able to master this rubber band magic trick.

Double Jumping Rubber Bands
This is a variation of the earlier mentioned trick. To do one of these interesting rubber band tricks, you will need two rubber bands of different colors. Once again you can use hair bands too. Hold up your palm with the back of the palm facing the audience. Wrap one rubber band around your little and ring finger and the other band around your middle and first finger. Make sure the rubber bands are resting at the base of your fingers. With your other finger, stretch the rubber band looped in your first and middle finger towards the other two fingers. Through the loop, get the second rubber band and stretch it. Place all the fingers in the loop. If you are performed the trick correctly, all the fingers will be trapped in two loops, but will look as one. Now quickly open your hands and see the rubber bands interchange themselves.

To make this trick work, you will need two rubber bands of different colors. Hold up your palm, with its back facing the audience. Wrap the rubber band around your little finger and the ring finger and push it down to the base. Loop the second rubber band on top of your little finger.

Now you have one rubber band in your little and ring finger and the other looped around all the other fingers. Set up the jumping rubber band, as mentioned in the first trick.
