How to Do Magic Tricks With Pencil?

Hello everyone and welcome to my post “How to Do Magic Tricks With Pencil?

We will see different tricks with the pencil. These all methods are simple but require practice. These are particularly considered for kids as these are easy.

Perform these tricks before your kids so they can get easily what to do and how. Kids should practice them several times in front of their families, friends, and relatives.

It will help them to build their confidence, and they will become a master in these performances. In this text, I will discuss two tricks with the pencil one by one.

Things to be required:

  1. A pen or pencil
  2. A table top
  3. Pencil Vanishing Trick

In this performance, the magician holds the pencil in his both hands. And within seconds the pencil disappears.

But how is this possible? Let’s have a look;

Actually, the illusionist takes a pencil and holds it with his both hands by using only his fingers. He keeps the pencil between thumb and first two fingers of both hands. He applies the force using his middle finger on the back side of the pencil and gives it a sudden jerk.

Pencil becomes invisible

After applying pressure the pencil moves behind the hand and the arm, and now it is not visible to the audience. He keeps holding the pencil with his middle and index finger. Otherwise, if pencil drops the magic trick fails.

It should be fast

It does not have any rocket science in it. The most important thing or in other words the secret of the trick lies in the speed. The faster you perform it, the more it will be helpful to convince the public that you have really disappeared the pencil.

Another way to perform the same magic

The same magic can be shown to the public in a different style.

But how?  Let’s see;

Place the table in front of you and sit its behind so that the audience can’t see your lap. Now hold the pencil same as explained before with the finger of both hands. Now cover the pencil with your hands so that the public can’t see it. While performing drop the pencil in your lap but be careful that the audience can’t see what actually happened.

Bring your hands close to each other

After you drop the pencil bring your hands close to each other pretending as you indulge in doing magic. And finally, show your hands to the viewers that pencil has gone.


  1. Conceal the pencil behind your arm carefully.
  2. While performing the second method be careful that your hands have completely covered the pencil.
  3. When you drop the pencil take care that it does not produce the sound.
  4. How to vanish coin by using pencil

The magician holds the coin in his hand and closes it. He has a pencil in his other hand and inserts this pencil in his closed palm. And when he opens his fist there is no coin.

How is it done?

When magician closes his hand with the coin in it, he also puts a pencil in it from the upper side. Before withdrawing pencil from the lower side of the fist he drops the coin in his other hand and then takes out the pencil from his hand. And then displays his open hand which is empty.


  1. Drop the coin in your hand, not on the floor.
  2. Drop the coin carefully so that the audience can’t guess it.
