I have discovered the best Gummy Bear Trick ever.
I have been traveling for work A LOT lately. To keep me in front of my boys, FaceTime has been a lifesaver. FaceTime and the greatest gummy bear trick ever.
Now I know a magician should never reveal his secrets, but the reaction to this trick is just too good to keep to myself. The reaction this afternoon was just priceless, so I had to share.
So here is the setup.
I told my boys I met someone on the plane today that showed me the coolest trick ever. I discovered a way to throw Gummy Bears through the phone to them from the hotel.
I told them to stand by the window, and get into position to catch. I stood in front of the hotel window and propped my phone up on the bed. I then showed them the bag of gummy bears I was eating. I went on to tell them to concentrate, and try hard to catch the bears as I magically transported them through the phone. Here is Ethan getting ready…
So as I squished the half eaten bag of gummy bears into a tight ball and got prepared to throw, I let them know there may be a delay as the gummy bears traveled through time and into Ben’s room. I then threw the bag directly at the phone and started yelling for them to look around to see if they came through.
As the phone jostled around the room, I told them to look everywhere. By the window, under the bed, by the table, and finally, look to see if they landed inside the drawer of Ben’s nightstand. This exact location also happened to be where I planted an open bag of gummy bears this morning. And to the unbelievable amazement of 2 little boys who would probably sell the dog for a bag of candy, the gummy bears MAGICALLY appeared!
The Greatest Gummy Bear Trick Ever!
Ben was blown away. How about this photo for a reaction?
And the more you sell it, the better the trick. If you really want to have fun, give them a color of what you have left in your bag, then tell them to throw a specific color back through the phone and catch one on your end. Mind blown.
It doesn’t have to be gummy bears. It can be any type candy, but I can almost guarantee a positive reaction.
Hearing them laugh absolutely makes my day.
It is the simple things in life.
We should try to pay attention to those simple things, and your children’s laughter is a great place to start. It sure seems like two bags of gummy bears is a small investment to get that much excitement in return.
The next time you are traveling, give it a shot. Then send me a message at email@example.com and tell me about it.
