Mind Reading Card Trick – Card Tricks For kids

- Split the pack of cards into two piles at the point where the split is.
- Place the 25 cards face down on the table and ask a spectator to choose one from the remaining cards in her hand.
- Get them to show it to the rest of the audience and memorize it.
- Ask them to place it back on top of the pack you are holding and add back your 25 cards from the table.
- Start dealing the cards face up and silently count to 26.
- Ta-Dah! This will be the spectator’s card.
Guessing: Is this Your Card? – Card Tricks For kids
Similar to the first trick, this one is more spectacular as you allow your spectator to shuffle the cards after they have picked the one they want.
- This trick is done by splitting an ordinary deck of cards into suits ahead of the trick. Hearts and spades for pile one, diamonds and clubs for pile two.
- Do this in advance of your audience’s arrival.
- You can place the deck back together before the trick, but be sure to know where both piles start and end.
- When the spectators arrive, split the deck into the pre-arranged piles and place them face down on the table.
- Ask a spectator to choose one of the piles and shuffle the cards.
- Placing them back on the table face down, ask them to choose a card from the pile they have shuffled.
- Once they have memorized the card, ask them to place it back into the other pile and let them shuffle the cards in that pile too.
- Pick up the pile and start to look through them. You will immediately see the odd card out but pause for dramatic effect or look like you are studying the cards intently.
- Hold it up to the audience and ask the spectator to confirm that it is their card!
Easy Card Trick Tutorial – Card Tricks For kids
You have to be able to spell to do this trick. You pretend you can’t find the card the spectator has picked, so you have to ask them what card it was. But with some simple counting and spelling tricks, you can wow them when you spell out the name of their card, and it appears as the final card.

- Place the eight cards on top of the deck face down and say this is the first Queen and she is going to Windsor Castle.
- Place this card, which your spectators think is the Queen, in a random place in the deck, this will of course not be the queen card but one of the random four you had hidden behind them.
- Do the same with the following three cards.
- When all the random cards have been placed in the pack say to your audience, the queens are rushing back for a Royal Ball!
- Wave your hands above the deck and tap it hard on the table.
- And amaze your spectators when the first four cards you lift from the deck are the four Queens.
11 Card Trick
For this trick you need a regular deck of cards. Remove one ace to represent the number 1, one joker, so you know if they have not moved any cards, and one of each card number up to 10. It doesn’t matter what suit you choose but you should now have eleven cards.
- Lay them out face down, from left to right, in this order – 6, 5 ,4, 3, 2, Ace, Jack, 10, 9, 8, 7.
- Ask a spectator to move cards, one at a time, from right to left.
- Say they moved five cards, then the new set up would be – 8, 9, 10, Jack, Ace, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.
- If you start at the left and silently count seven cards in, turning over the 7th card, this card will be the amount of cards they moved over.
- If they do not move any cards over the 7th card will be the joker so you will know that no cards have been moved.
- Move the cards back in order to do the trick again. It will work every time!.
How to Do the Colour Card Trick
Sorting the cards by colour is the secret behind this trick.
- Separate the cards into black and red. Remember which colour you put on top. Do this before you start your performance, so that the audience doesn’t see.
- Fan out the top few cards and ask a member of your audience to pick a card from the top. Tell them to memorise their card.
- Then, fan out the bottom of the deck to allow them to put their card back in.
- Split the deck somewhere in the middle, and place the bottom half on the top to “shuffle” the cards. It doesn’t matter if the split isn’t exactly in the middle.
- To then magically find the card that was chosen, look through the deck. The colour of the one you want should be the only red card mixed in between the black cards, or vice versa.
- Pull out the card and announce, “Is this your card?” Your audience will be amazed with your brilliant mind reading skills!
How to Do the Jumping Cards Trick
This kids’ card trick is simple to perform, because all it depends on is a bit of sneaky preparation. You’ll need two decks of cards to start.
- Prepare your deck of cards by putting the seven of spades and the eight of clubs at the top of the deck. (You can use any two cards, but be sure to take the same ones from your second deck in the next step.)
- Next, take the seven of spades and the eight of clubs from the second deck and put them at the bottom of the original deck, which is the one you will use for your trick.
- Now it’s time to start your performance. Announce that you will make the cards jump from one of the deck to the other.
- Show your audience the two cards at the top of the deck and ask them to remember them. Then put the cards back on top.
- Tap the deck twice. You could use a magic wand here, just like a real magician – magic shops and toy stores usually stock these.
- Show your audience the bottom two cards from the deck. The seven of spades and the eight of clubs will have “magically” jumped to the bottom of the pack!
easy magic tricks to do at home
Learning to perform card tricks is a great way to exercise children’s cognitive thinking as well as build their self-esteem. This magic trick is the easiest card trick around!
What you need
- A set of playing cards
Without moving your mouth to show you are counting, count out 20 cards off the top of the pack and set those 20 aside on the table in front of you. This will be pile 2. The other pile will be pile 1.
Offer the other half of the pack (pile 1) to your spectator. Ask him to choose a card.
Tell him to memorise it.
Ask him to give it back to you.
Slip the card beneath pile 2 (the 20 cards you set aside at the beginning).
Place pile 2 on top of pile 1.
Turn the cards over to face you: so that you can see the front of each card.
Count from the back of the pile until you get to the 21st card. That will be your spectator’s card.
Ask your spectator, “Is this your card?”
They will be amazed!
Tips and hints:
- Counting exactly is very important in this trick.
- Practice counting in your head, without moving your lips so that no one knows you are counting the cards.
- When you first separate the pack into two piles, try to make it look like you are simply cutting the pack.
- If you are not confident, try setting your pile 2 aside before anyone is watching you.
How to Do a Simple Card Trick for Kids
- This card trick is really easy. Kind of silly but mainly to show kids. Start with a shuffled deck of cards.
- Fan out the cards and have someone pick a card and look at it without showing it.
- This is the card I chose as an example.
- Once they have memorized their card, split the deck and half and have them put it face down on top. The trick to this trick is to memorize the card that will be next to theirs. Kind of sneaky.
- This is just me putting the example card down. Don’t make what you’re doing too obvious. Most kids didn’t catch it when I did it.
- Now shuffle the cards just a little so you don’t separate their card from the one you memorized.
- Then start going through the cards until you find the one you’re looking for. Sometimes it helps To pass it and Go back to help the illusion. Their card should be to the right of yours if done right.
- Then show them the card and let them be amazed! Like I said, seem like no one would fall for it but you would be surprised. Hope you like it 🙂
How to play Crazy Eights
This card game is a fun game that allows players to use their concentration skills to get through the game.
What you need
- . a deck of cards
Each player is dealt seven cards.
The remaining cards are placed face down in the center of the table, forming a draw pile.
The top card of the draw pile is turned face up to start the discard pile next to it.
First player adds to the discard pile by playing one card that matches the top card on the discard pile either by suit or by rank (i.e. 6, jack, ace, etc.).
A player who cannot match the top card on the discard pile by suit or rank must draw cards until he can play one.
When the draw pile is empty, a player who cannot add to the discard pile passes his turn.
All eights are wild and can be played on any card during a player’s turn.
When a player discards an eight, he chooses which suit is now in play.
The next player must play either a card of that suit or another eight.
The first player to discard all of his cards wins.
You can play this game with four players and play partnership. If you do this, the game ends when both members of a partnership discard all their cards.
Snip Snap Snorem
This is a popular – and noisy – card matching game, suitable for younger children and mixed age groups. card tricks for kids
Number of players:
Standard deck of cards
Deal the cards out completely (don’t worry if some players get more than others). Players sort the cards in their hands by rank: the object of the game is to get rid of all your cards.
The player to the left of the dealer starts by placing any card down on the table. The next player looks to see if they have a card of the same rank. If they do, they place it down on top of the card, saying “Snip”. If they have another card of the same rank, they place it down too, saying “Snap”. And if they don’t, play passes to the next player, and so on. Whoever places the final card of that rank says “Snorem” and wins the right to start the next round with the card of their choice.
Children will soon learn that it is best to lead with a card in which they have more than one of a kind.
How to play Go Fish
Go fish is a great kids activity and learning game about numbers, patterns and pairs. Enjoy this fun, easy card game with the whole family and watch as your children learn as they play.
What you need
- deck of cards
Five cards are dealt to each player if three to six players are involved.
With only two players, seven cards are dealt to each.
All remaining cards are placed face down in a pile.
First, choose a player to go first.
On each person’s turn, ask any player for a specific card rank. For example: “Sarah, please give me all your 9s.” You must already hold at least one card of the rank you ask for.
If the player you ask has any cards of the requested rank, she must give all of her cards of that rank to you. In the example, Sarah would have to give you all of her 9s.
If you get one or more cards from the player you ask, you get another turn.
It starts again and you may ask any player for any rank you already hold, including the same one you just asked for. If the person you ask has no relevant cards, they say, “Go fish.”
You then draw the top card from the draw pile. If you happen to draw a card of the rank asked for, show it to the other players and your turn continues. Otherwise, it is the next player’s turn. You add the drawn card to your hand.
NOTE: The “next player” is the one who said “Go fish.” When you collect a set of four cards of the same rank, immediately show the set to the other players and place the four cards face down in front of yourself. That is a “match”.
Go Fish continues until either someone has no cards left in their hand or the draw pile runs out.
The winner is the player who then has the most matches (sets of four). For younger children you can deem “matches” a pair of a rank (2 cards instead of 4) which allows them to “win” a few extra times and keeps the game moving. Remember these are card tricks for kids.
PLAYING BEGGAR MY NEIGHBOR
Beggar My Neighbor, a card game suitable for small children that are also known as Beat Your Neighbor Out of Doors and Strip Jack Naked, is a very simple game, requiring no strategy or planning at all. The objective of the game is to win all the cards from the other players.
card tricks for kids
To play Beggar My Neighbor, you need the following:
- Two to six players: You can play with more than six players in a pinch.
- A standard deck of 52 cards: With four or more players, add a second deck of cards. This game has the great advantage that you don’t really need a complete deck of cards — the fact that a card or two is missing is almost irrelevant. Don’t forget to remove the jokers!
To begin, one player deals out the whole deck in a clockwise rotation, dealing the cards face-down and one card at a time so that each player gets about the same number of cards. The players don’t look at their cards; they just form them into a neat pile, face-down in front of them.
The player to the left of the dealer turns over the top card from his pile and places it in the center of the table (or floor, if you happen to be playing there).
Different things can happen now, depending on what card has been turned over:
- If the value of the card is between 2 and 10, the card has no special significance, and the play goes on to the next player.
- If the card is a court card (an ace, king, queen, or jack), the game becomes a little more exciting. The next player then has to pay a forfeit, meaning that she has to turn over some of her cards onto the central pile. If the turned-over card is an ace, the second player must turn over four cards one by one onto the pile; and the card is a king, he has to pay three cards; if a queen, two cards; and if a jack, one card.
If all the forfeit cards the player turns over are between 2 and 10, then the player who turned over the court card takes up the whole pile and puts it under his own cards. But if the player turns over another court card during the course of the forfeit, then the debt is deemed paid off, and that player doesn’t have to turn over any more cards.
Instead, the next player must pay the forfeit dictated by the second court card and hope to turn over a court card in the process or concede the whole central pile to that player.
When a player has no more cards left, she is out, and the game continues without her. The last player in the game, who accumulates the whole deck, wins.
Your success at Beggar My Neighbor depends on the luck of the draw; if you get a good smattering of court cards, you will probably win. If someone feels bad because he lost, you may want to remind him of that. But that doesn’t mean you can’t congratulate him if he wins!
Because the game theoretically can go on for a long time — and is ideal for long car journeys, waiting for planes, or similar situations — you can also agree that the player with the most cards at a certain predefined time is the winner.
How to play War – card game
This is a great card game to teach the kids. It will keep them entertained for hours as they try to beat their opponent. With a little bit of guidance, the kids will be beating you in no time. A fantastic game to be pulled out on family night!
What you need
- deck of cards
The object of War is to win all the cards in the deck.
Aces are high, 2s are low.
The tricks are played according to rank; suits are ignored.
All 52 cards are dealt to each player (if you have two players, each player has a total of 26 cards).
You do not look at your cards – they are placed in a stack face-down.
Holding the stack of cards face-down in one hand, you use the other hand to flip the card face-up on the table in front of you.
Each player flips a card, so if you have two players you will have two cards facing up in front of you.
The highest card wins the trick and the trick winner takes the 2 cards and places them at the bottom of his or her stack of face-down cards.
You continue play like this until one of you has accumulated all the cards.
In the game of War, a war is a means to break a tie.
When two cards of the same rank are played, you break the tie by playing new cards in addition to those already on the table.
The player with the highest-ranking new card wins the tiebreaker and all the played cards.
If you both play a card of the same rank – let’s say you both play a Jack – you have to have a war.
You leave the Jacks face-up on the table and put one card on top of your Jack – face-down – and then another card face-up on top of the face-down card.
So you’ll have the following configuration of cards in front of you: the tied Jack, a face-down card, and a face-up card.
The person with the highest face-up card takes all the cards on the table and places them face-down at the bottom of their stack.
If the top card is another tie, you place another face-down card, then a face-up card – basically, you keep going until someone wins the war.
This is the best and fastest way to accumulate cards.
If one of you runs out of cards in the middle of a war, the other player wins.
This card game looks pretty simple, because it is! But beware, just as you’re about win things can go horribly wrong. Excitement plus!
- See how to play Rolling stone card game
Snap is a very simple children’s game for two or more players played in Britain, North America and perhaps other countries. It is a rare example of a card game of almost pure skill, the skills required being accurate observation and quick reactions.
Snap seems to have first appeared towards the end of the 19th century, perhaps originating as a simplified but in some ways more exciting version of Snip Snap Snorum.
Players and Cards
Snap is suitable for from two to about six players: with more than six it becomes unwieldy. A standard 52-card pack is used. Suits do not matter, only the ranks A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K. Some people prefer to play with special cards: any pack consiting of a reasonable number of sets of identical or matching cards is suitable. Various designs of Snap cards are available from amazon.com:
Deal and Play
Anyone may deal. The cards are shuffled and dealt out to the players as equally as possible. Players do not look at their cards but keep them in a face down stack in front of them.
The player to dealer’s left begins and the turn to play passes clockwise. At your turn you simply turn the top card of your face-down pile and place it face-up alongside. In this way each player forms a pile of face-up cards beside their face-down pile. If at any moment two of the face-up piles have matching cards at the top (for example two sixes or two kings),
anyone who notices this shouts “snap!”. The first person who shouted “snap!” takes both matching face-up piles and adds them face-down to the bottom of their face-down pile. The game then continues as before, beginning with the player to the left of the last one who turned a card.
If you have no face-down cards left when it comes to your turn, you simply turn over your face-up pile to make a new face-down pile and turn over the top card as before. If you have no cards left at all, you are out of the game. The last player in is the winner.
When turning up cards, you are not allowed to peek at your card before the other players can see it. To ensure this, cards should be turned over facing away from the player, so that if it is turned too slowly the turning player will see it last.
If a player shouts “snap” in error, when there is no match, that player’s face-up pile is taken away and put in the centre of the table,where it becomes a snap pool.
This happens several times there can be several snap pools. If the top card of any player’s pile matches the top card of one of the snap pools, the first player who calls “snap pool” takes both piles.
Single PileVery young children may play a version where players turn over their cards onto a single pile in the centre of the table. In this version, when two consecutive cards match, any player who notices this may call “snap” and the first player who calls wins the centre pile and adds it to their own cards face down. A player who calls “snap” incorrectly must give the top card of their pile, face down, to the player of the card for which they wrongly called “snap”.
As usual, players who turn out of cards drop out of the game and the last player holding cards is the winner. If two or more players call “snap” simultaneously, the central pile is moved aside to become a “snap pool”. Subsequently, if the top card of the centre pile matches a snap pool, the first player who calls “snap pool” wins the snap pool pile.
Simultaneous callsSome play that if two or more players shout snap at exactly the same time, the matching piles are combined into a single pile, which forms an additional snap pool, placed in the centre of the table. If two or more people call “snap pool” at the same time, the player pile that matches the snap pool in question is added to it.
Alternatively, problems with simultaneous calls can be solved by having an object in the middle of the table, which is to be grabbed by anyone calling snap. If several people try to put their hands on the object. the one whose hand is underneath, in contact with the object, is clearly the first. In a single pile snap, the players may be required to slap the centre pile when calling snap. When several do this, the player whose hand is underneath getting the pile. The game then becomes rather similar to Slap Jack.
Only owners of equal cards may snapIn the game in which each player has their own pile, some play that only the owners of the matching cards are allowed to call snap, and the first to do so wins both piles.
In this variant of Snap, which is suitable for about four to eight players, each player chooses a different animal at the start of the game. The dealer deals the cards to the players face up, one card to each player in turn, forming a face up pile in front of each player. When the top cards of two piles match, the owners of those two piles must call the name of the other player’s animal. The first to do so correctly wins the other player’s pile and places it under their own. The winner is the player who has most cards when the deck runs out.
Some play this with animal noises rather than animals. Some play that when claiming a match you have to say the name of the noise made by the other player’s animal, rather than making the noise. For example if your pile matches the cat’s pile, you have to say the word “meow”, not making a meowing sound
The key to winning this classic game lies in your ability to keep a poker face. If you can trick your opponent, you’re in with a good chance of scooping the pool.

How to play the Spit card game – Card Tricks For kids
This card game is fun and children will enjoy playing it. They will use their concentration skills and learn to play this game fast.
What you need
- . a deck of cards
Spit is a game where you need to try and get rid of all your cards as quickly as possible.
Once you shuffle the cards deal them to each player.
Each player then deals out five piles of cards in a row in front of himself, with all cards face down.
The first pile has one card, the second two cards etc until the fifth pile has five cards.
Turn the top card of each pile face up which is known as stock piles.
Each player will have eleven cards remaining in his hand which are known as the spit cards.
When both players are ready, they say “spit” together and each player turns his top spit card face up, placing it in the middle of the table between the two rows of stock piles.
These two cards are the “spit piles.”
Keep on playing as quickly as the players can, using only one hand and moving one card at a time.
The goal is to play the 15 cards in your stock piles onto the spit piles.
- When an Ace is showing on a spit pile, either a King or a 2 can be played on top of it. When a player moves a card from one of his stock piles to a spit pile, he may turn the next card in the stock pile face up.
- If a player has less than five stock piles (because one has been exhausted by playing cards into the spit piles), he may move the face up card from another stock pile to fill the empty slot. He may then turn face up the card that was below the one he moved.
- A round ends when either a player runs out of stock cards by playing them all, or neither player can make a legal play and both players still have cards remaining in their stock piles (but not their spit piles).
