Professional magician Robert Strong shares 20 magic tricks for both kids (5+) and adults to help beat the stay at home blues.
We are all ‘social distancing’ ourselves, so now is a great time to learn a new skill. Magic is the best way to connect with people and when the world gets back to ‘normal’ you will have some amazing tricks up your sleeve. But for now, we have time to learn and practice. I have a set of videos for adults and a set for kids (lower down on this post).
I started magic when I was 12 years old from a book that I received called Spooky Tricks. I have been performing professionally for 35 years and I have been teaching magic to executives at some of the world’s largest tech companies. I’ve also used magic to help tech companies with their marketing too (see below).
