Floating Magic Wand

Another quick little project kids will have fun with. A friend of my son’s had a $20 store-bought version that intrigued me. After examining it, I thought, “Hell, I can make that! It’s just a weighted stick!” After a few minutes of practice, any kid will master the floating wand and amaze their friends!

Cool, fun little project. I wish my son was old enough to appreciate that. I bet I could get a nice eye-roll out of my wife if I made this for my own enjoyment…might have to give it a shot!

Very cool! Who needs kids to have all the fun? Getting old doesn’t require a mandatory state of maturity.

That was a GREAT video. Loved the “Dry Time.” and your demo at the end.
