Try this cool coin trick on friends!
- an audience
- 4 coins (nickel, dime, quarter, loonie or penny)
- a helper
- a cup with a handle
- As you look away, ask an audience member to choose 1 of the 4 coins.
- Then ask your helper to cover the coin chosen with the cup. (See below for how your helper should put the cup.) Hide the other coins.
- Turn around and tell the audience member what coin is under the cup.
How the trick works:
Ahead of time, ask a helper to help you with this trick. The helper will turn the cup so that the handle tells you what coin is underneath. For example:
Handle facing away from you = loonie/penny
Handle facing towards you = nickel
Handle facing to the right = dime
Handle facing to the left = quarter
