Jumping Matches Magic Trick

This is a very easy magic trick to do and you will get a great reaction from onlookers.with it, too!
First, take two wooden matches from a matchbox. Then hold your left hand palm up and place one match on your palm with the match head facing to the right and extended past your hand.

(So, the match is partially off your left palm about a quarter-inch.) Pick up the other match with your right first finger and thumb only and rub the match head on your sleeve, explaining that you are giving it a static charge, etc.

Then bring the two match heads together, and... ...with the fingernail of your right middle( or ring finger), snap the end of the match (it'll make a small snapping sound).

 

This will cause the match on your hand to pop up high in the air. You might have to touch the match on the underside of the match head to get a good leap out of it.

Practice this until you can do it without thinking. It's so simple you may overlook it's effectiveness! I perform this magic trick a lot and it gets a great audience reaction!.

This sleight is very visual and can really entertain a crowd.
