I'm also trying to figure out a good performance for this..
I don't have the extra ending so all I do the normal routine where the magician's crayon is always up or down, ect. and not the assitants. Then get to the part where the assitant's has the correct position of the crayon as you from helping with alittle bit of magic.
Then since you have the extra ending, you can end it with that.
To make it the performance more entertaining, I would suggest maybe try to spice it up a bit with some comedey which I'm trying to do with this effect.
I don't know how you do your routine but I'm just giving my view on how I try to make it a good enough routine for the audience.
Just my 2 cents..

I like to do this routine at a school and get a teacher to come up and show her class how to pay attention and follow instructions. Of course it never works and the kids get a great kick out if it. The teachers get a little annoyed but it's certainly a routine the kids will always tease the teacher about. The to end it ask for a kid from the group. And end with the kid doing exactly like you. It drives the teachers nuts and ends with the kids feeling good about themselves.
