Disappearing Crayons

Here is a unique effect you can build at home:

Magician shows a box of crayons to the audience of children and passes his hand over the box and they magically disappear.

Magician turns the box over and makes another magical gesture and they reappear.

Just One!

Fellow Magi,

    I found Jeff McBride's Blog post particularly interesting.  I have been in law enforcement for over 30 years, as a young man I "Thought I could change the world".  Some years later, I realized the faulty thinking, but I realized that it was possible to save just one person, perhaps, if the stars aligned themselves just right.
