Magic Walk-Through Paper
This trick will really amaze your family and friends! You need a piece of paper and a pair of scissors. WARNING: scissors are sharp. Ask a grown up to help you!
1. First of all, make a bet with your audience that you can make a hole in the piece of paper which is big enough to step through. They won’t believe you!
2. Fold your piece of paper in half.
3. Use the scissors to cut a series of strips in the paper starting at the folded side. Don’t cut right through the paper: leave about 2m at the edge. Repeat all along the piece of paper.
4. Now turn the paper over and start cutting the other way, again stopping about 2cm from the edge.
5. Leave the two strips at the ends, but cut through the fold on all the other ones.
6. Open up the paper: it is now big enough to step through! What else can you fit through it? I could fit my cat, but she wasn’t very impressed! Can you fit your whole family through it?
