DIY fun Magic tricks using Science |

Fan of Science ? This article is for you 🙂 Scroll down to continue reading & explore the wonderful world of science.

In this article,I will show how to do amazing Science tricks to impress your friends/family if you are doing a magic show xD Sounds a bit childish/funny but still you will be amazed by those colorful inventions 🙂

1.Unburnable Money

This trick requires a dollar bill, a lighter, some salt, a bowl and some rubbing alcohol, something between 50-70 %

Take the bowl and fill it with the alcohol and place a pinch of salt in there as well.
Take the bill and soak it in the alcohol and light it on fire. Shake off the fire quickly and you will see no damage has been done to the note.

2.Fountain to impress kids

This is an easy project. You’ll get all wet, but as long as you use diet cola you won’t get sticky. Just drop a roll of mentos all at once into a 2-liter bottle of diet cola.The mentos fountain is more spectacular than a baking soda volcano.Kids will think its all magical!

3.Invisible Ink

Invisible inks either react with another chemical to become visible or else weaken the structure of the paper so the message appears if you hold it over a heat source
Mix equal parts water and baking soda.
Use a cotton swab, toothpick, or paintbrush to write a message onto white paper, using the baking soda solution as ‘ink’.
Allow the ink to dry.
One way to read the message is to hold the paper up to a heat source, such as a light bulb. The baking soda will cause the writing in the paper to turn brown.
A second method to read the message is to paint over the paper with purple grape juice. The message will appear in a different color.


4.Hot ice

You can supercool hot ice or sodium acetate so that it will remain a liquid below its melting point. You can trigger crystallization on command, forming sculptures as the liquid solidifies. The reaction is exothermic so heat is generated by the hot ice.

Sodium acetate or hot ice is an amazing chemical you can prepare yourself from baking soda and vinegar. You can cool a solution of sodium acetate below its melting point and then cause the liquid to crystallize. The crystallization is an exothermic process, so the resulting ice is hot. Solidification occurs so quickly you can form sculptures as you pour the hot ice.

5.Vanishing water

In this science magic trick , you cause some water that you have poured into a cup to magically vanish, as if into thin air. This is one of those science magic tricks that is based on a scientific principle that you don’t tell spectators about, as opposed to being a demonstration of a scientific concept that appears to be a magic trick .
A compound known as sodium polyacrylate, which you can purchase at a hardware store, gardening store or nursery, and is sold as “moisture-saving pellets.” You can also obtain sodium polyacrylate from a disposable baby diaper. Simply tear open a diaper and remove and collect the moisture holding material within.

Sodium polyacrylate acts like a sponge and absorbs moisture. When mixed with water, the compound actually turns into a solid gel. Once the sodium polyacrylate forms a gel, the water is no longer liquid and can’t pour out.

6.Bending Water

Turn on the water so it is falling from the tap in a narrow stream (just a few millimetres across but not droplets).
Run the comb through your hair just as you normally would when brushing it (do this around 10 times)
Slowly move the comb towards the stream of water (without touching it) while watching closely to see what happens.
Scientifically :The static electricity you built up by combing your hair or rubbing it against the balloon attracts the stream of water, bending it towards the comb or balloon like magic!


7.Smoking Fingers Trick

Cut out the striker portion of a matchbox from a box of safety matches. Trim off any paper around the striker.
Fold the striker in half, striker-sides facing each other.
Set the folded striker on top of the running cold water faucet or a refrigerated metal pan.
Use a lighter to set fire to the striker. Ignite both ends. Then run the lighter along the length of the folded striker. It won’t burn to ash, which is fine.
Discard the burned striker.
You will see a brown residue that has been deposited along the top of the faucet or metal pan. Run your fingertip along the residue to pick it up.
Slowly rub your finger and thumb together. If you do this in the dark, your fingers will have a greenish glow.


8.Magic Milk

Pour whole milk in a pie pan, and allow the milk to warm to room temperature.
Place a few drops of different colored food coloring into the pan of milk.
Next, place a few drops of liquid dish soap into the pan of milk.
Watch what happens.

The soap breaks down the fat in the milk and causes the food coloring to swirl and make some really neat designs.

Do you guys want a part 2 ? Let me know 😀



Please be careful with fire & take many precautions. You are responsible for your actions 🙂
