The Incredible Linking Paperclips

Activity Overview

Aspiring magicians will mystify themselves along with their audience when they successfully perform the Incredible Linking Paperclips trick. This trick may take a little bit of practice, but the items are easily accessible in your home. I like to give the kids a magic trick to work on while I am making dinner and then they can perform it after the meal has concluded.

Materials Needed

  • A dollar bill
  • 2 paper clips

How to Do It

  1. Take your dollar bill and fold it back and forth into thirds like an accordion.
  2. Attach one of the paper clips to the front of the bill from the top, with the shorter side of the clip facing you.
  3. Attach the other paper clip to the back of the bill from the top, with the shorter side facing away from you.
  4. Take one end of the bill in each hand and pull them quickly to give it a quick snap. The clips will fly into the air, and when you pick them up, they will be attached.
