Wizard’s Workshop - Why Should Children Learn Magic?
Everybody loves magic and there is nothing more exciting and intriguing than the mystery of how a certain trick was completed. "How did my card jump from the middle to the top of the deck? How did that magician chop his lovely assistant in half? How did that coin end up behind my ear?" These are all questions that children believe they will never get the answer to. Not unless they learn magic.
Why Would Children Learn Magic?
Learning magic creates so many opportunities and also offers many benefits. As you may have noticed, magicians aren’t exactly shy of confidence. The ability to be able to master a trick and bamboozle their peers is a great confidence builder for any child and many studies have proved that the problem solving aspect of learning magic does wonders for children’s self esteem.
The main reason why learning magic helps so much with a child’s confidence is because of the constant interaction with other people. This communication is not only with other children but often with adults as well. These conversations and interactions are excellent for developing social skills. Having a few tricks up your sleeve is the perfect ice breaker when meeting new people.
It Gets Them More Active!
Living in the ‘Gaming Generation’, a lot of children’s time is spent playing computer games. However, this is not always the most productive thing to be doing. The beauty of learning magic is that it integrates the fun and challenging part of computer games with the addition of learning an admired skill. It is not only admired by parents and other children but in the future it looks extremely good on college and job applications, as it demonstrates their ability to stick to a project, as well as showing social skills, and confidence with dealing with the public. Fast forward a few more years into the future and being able to perform magic will be a great activity to help earn some extra cash. A hobby that is creative, admired by colleges and earns you money. What else can you ask for?
Learning magic is an instant platform of creativity. Every magician starts by learning the same basic tricks, but once a magician starts to develop their skills and discovers the particular tricks they feel most comfortable with, it then gives them a cornerstone to create their own tricks. This creativity can then progress onto other projects as well as just simple card magic. Many magicians such as Dynamo and David Blaine just started by performing card tricks and basic tricks with household items and they obviously have developed & progressed into performing mind-boggling illusions, in which audience members can't even comprehend how the trick was done.
