Magic School!

September 21st, 2013, 11:00am to 12:00pm
Children will have a great time as they learn (and take home) a collection of thrilling and entertaining tricks from the “Magic Team of Gary Kantor”! Coin tricks, card tricks, vanishing effects, and much more will be taught. And in addition to the fun of the magic, this workshop will emphasize the importance of education and reading for the children. All materials are provided, and each child receives a magic kit to take home. Children are grouped by age and will learn tricks that are age-appropriate.
