When you're first getting started with street magic (or any kind, for that matter), I find that it can be a lot of fun and good practice if you go out in the evening and perform the informal stuff for the neighborhood kids. They love it and it's great practice for yourself. :wow:

My personal favorite is just a bunch of forces, "memorize the card... etc, etc"...

If that works for you, great !
Some neighborhoods are more magic user friendly than others, I guess. Mine is too quiet and full of a lot of retired people. Quiet but a little on the boring side.

Definately. I live in a decent neighborhood, and there are always several kids who ride their bikes around outside. Now when they see me, they will always ask to see a trick. Kids are great test subjects!

If there is something I love, it is to entertain people in my neighborhood.

They love it because they are my friends..I had to teach them to please not ask me for magic everytime I see them.

They know that every once in a while I will gather them to show them some of my magic.

Watching the reactions of children when performing is a magic in itself!

The way the faces light up is what makes it all worth it at the end of the day.

Robin, very well said. I love that feeling of seeing a child's eyes light up when two sponge balls pop out of their hand.
