Magic party Invitations
Magical Party Costumes
Get the kids to come dressed as magicians, white rabbits or Harry Potter.
Have a few black cloaks ready for those kids who forget. These are easy to make from large squares of cheap black cloth. Turn over a 2" seam on one edge. Sew and thread through some black cord for the necktie.
Alternatively, save time and buy a ready made magic costume....

Magic Party Games
Hunt the RabbitHide lots of white rabbits made from craft paper, around the house or garden. Whoever finds the most rabbits gets a prize.
Magicians Hat TossMake a magicians hat out of a plastic bucket covered with black crepe paper and make a rim from black craft card. Line the kids up and let them take turns to throw small rubber bouncing balls into the hat. Whoever gets the most in is the winner.
Spin the Magic WandIn advance write out lots of forfeits appropriate for the age of the guests and place in a large bowl. Sit the kids in a circle and spin a wand on the floor in the middle. You will need a smooth shiny surface such as a wooden or tiled floor or low wooden coffee table. Whoever the wand points to has to pull out a forfeit and act it out. To make it more fun, on some of the pieces of paper you could say "Win a prize" instead of giving a forfeit.
Magic BeansPlace a large amount of colored jelly beans in a large jar and get the kids to guess the number of beans there are. The closest gets to eat the lot!
Magicians AnagramsChoose the name of a well known magician such as 'David Copperfield' and get the kids to see who can make the most words out of the letters in his name.
Card TowerSee who can build the highest tower using a pack of cards.
PiñataHaving a piñata is always a great success at kids parties. Instead of using a stick to bash the piñata, use a plastic magic wand or make one out of a thin wooden pole, painted black.
Or how about a:
Harry Potter Wand! (UK supplier)
Harry Potter Malfoy wand (US Supplier)

Here's a trick that I love to do and the kids are always so amazed. Blow up a large balloon (the bigger the better!) and stick a small piece of clear scotch (sellotape) on it, making it as conspicuous as possible. Sit the kids in a circle and tell them that you can put a pin in the balloon without making it go bang. Take a large sewing needle, amidst the gasps of "No" and the covering of ears, and insert the needle into the balloon where you have the scotch. I promise that the balloon won't go BANG!
