For your trick, make sure you pull out the middle box and show your audience it has no bottom. Then, place it back inside the large box and take a small stuffed animal or scarf and dramatically put it inside the magic disappearing box. To your audience, it will look like you are putting the scarf in the middle box, but it's really inside the secret black box. Wave your wand! Pull out the middle box! Amaze your audience!

Ever wonder how a magician can pull a rabbit out of a box or a hat? Most often it’s about hidden panels inside the hat or box. The magic disappearing box has another smaller box hiding inside in plain sight, where you can make a stuffed rabbit appear or disappear. Making a magic disappearing box is all about appearances. So it’s very important that you don’t cut corners.

What you need

• Three cardboard boxes, they should nest inside each other. You also want to make sure the boxes are small enough to fit on a table.

• Black paint. This can be acrylic or spray paint, but you are going to need a lot of the same type of paint.

• Colorful paper or paint for decorating.

• Scissors or an exacto knife — make sure you get help from an adult.
