One Fish, Two Fish
Color Sponge Ball Routine
by Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki
This isnt a card trick, so it didnt
make it into my Go
Fish Card Tricks book, but because I usually like to
warm up my audience with a sponge ball routine, just to
make sure everyone is paying attention and can see without
having to stand up, I began playing around with a sponge
fish routine to combine with my fishy themed card tricks. I'm
told that it is very unusual to do a sponge ball routine with
different color spongeballs, but here it is anyway. I even show
you how to make your own sponge fish balls.
The entire routine is performed to rhyming
patter: adapted, with apologies, from Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel
1904 1991 ; One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
Left hand, Right Hand
Back hand, Front Hand (Two Fish appear one in each of my hands, one red and one
One Fish, Two Fish,
Red Fish, Blue Fish,
Here Fish, There Fish.
Which Fish? Where Fish?
Here Fish? No, There Fish!
And so it goes on for about three minutes or so.
The fish appear and disappear, then a yellow fish joins them and
the three fish play a game of hide and seek. At the end they all
disappear, but come back for a bow. The sponge ball routine is a
very standard sponge ball routine, but using moves chosen for
work with different color sponge fish.
