Santa's Magic Chimney
By Jim Gerrish and the Wiz Kids
Effect: A Effect: a blank card
is shown on both sides and given to a helper elf to
hold until midnight. Another helper elf is given a
small wooden fireplace to hold until midnight. To speed things
up, the audience raises both of their clock hands
high into the air to make midnight. As they chime
Ding! twelve times, the magician places the blank
card into the fireplace and they all wait expectantly for the
magic of Christmas to happen. When nothing seems to happen, the
magician asks the helper elf who was holding the
fireplace to remove the blank card and give it back to the other
helper elf. Thats when they discover that Santa Claus has
already visited them and left his picture behind on the back of
the card to prove it.
At this point you can combine this effect with a production
of the Christmas Presents from my Chimney
Screen or from any other production devices you may have.
Make it yourself from hardboard and pine molding.
