Science Can Be A Fun Magic

Did you know that magic is also related to science? There are many magic tricks that take advantage of the nature of science and present it to the audience as something ‘magic’. You can make your children a kids magician and teach them this.

Use science to do some simple water magic tricks. Get water to change color and shape and move in mysterious ways.

Anti Gravity Water Tricks
Pour water into a glass. Cover the glass with a damp cloth. Turn the glass over and the water won’t come out. This is a simple trick that works because of the surface tension of the water.

Supercool Water
You can cool water below its freezing point without turning it into ice. Then, once you’re ready, pour in some water or shake it and watch the crystals crystallize before your eyes.

Turn Water into Wine or Blood
This classic water magic trick involves making a glass of “water” that appears to turn into blood or wine. The color change can be reversed by blowing the red liquid through a straw.

Walking on Water
Can you walk on water? Absolutely not, right? Usually, a person sinks into the water. If you change the viscosity of the water, you can stay on the surface.

Fire and Water Magic Tricks
Pour water into a plate, place a lit match in the center of the plate and cover the match with a glass.

Turn Boiling Water Into Instant Snow
This water science trick is as easy as throwing boiling water into the air and watching it instantly turn to snow. All you need is boiling water and very cold air. This is simple if you have access to a very cold winter day. If not, you’ll want to find a deep freeze or maybe air around liquid nitrogen.
