How to do the spoon bend magic trick?
Hi, I’m The Amazing Dave. Today for About.com I’m going to show you how to do the spoon bend magic trick. All you’ll need for this trick is a spoon. Explain to your audience that you are going to bend this spoon and then magically restore it to normal. Here's how you do it. Place the spoon on your table like this. Grab it with two hands leaving only the bowl of the spoon exposed. Now it’s time to create the illusion that you are bending the spoon. That’s right, you’re not actually going to bend it. What you're going to do is you're going to let the handle of the spoon slide backwards in your hand creating the illusion that it's bending just like this. Now if you want you can even add some grunts and groans to make it sound like it's really hard like this. Grrrrrrr. Now it appears that the spoon has been bent, but it really hasn't. Now it's time to make it appear to go back to normal. Say some magic words. Abracadrabra! And reveal that your spoon is totally back to normal. Thanks for watching.
