Hocus Focus: The Healing Power of Magic

Dayton Children’s was so happy to welcome Kevin Spencer and his assistant, Alan, for a presentation of Hocus Focus: The Healing Power of Magic – a unique interactive series of workshops associated with the Victoria Theater’s Young At Heart presentation of Spencer’s Theatre of Illusion. Families were invited to share the afternoon with Mr. Spencer to learn magic tricks to help with motor skill development.  Participants learned the healing power of magic as they explored tricks with household objects including rope, rubber bands, paperclips and even dollar bills.  Here are some photos from our afternoon!

Tying a knot without letting go of the rope end
Great technique to get little fingers moving – switching the rubber band from two fingers to two other fingers
It’s amazing how fun a dollar and two paperclips can be!
