Have you ever seen a ship in a bottle? Up that a notch. Imagine seeing a decks of cards sealed and still in its cellophane wrapping inside a barbeque sauce bottle. How about a gallon glass jug filled with tennis balls or a bar of soap, still packaged, inside of a bottle. Now, imagine all those items were put into those bottles through the 1" opening of the bottle. If you can imagine that, then you've just imagined the art of Bottle Magic.
Sound interesting? It is. And a lot of fun too! There's is a catch. It takes thought, patience and a lot of practice. That's what this week offers: a chance for you to learn about and make some Bottle Magic bottles. By the end of the week students will have a chance to experience how to place several items into glass bottles. You will blow your friends away with what you have done--but remember it's all a secret so you can't share your process with anyone. Remember it has to be magic!
