Craig Nelson Magic Show

I am always looking for cool things to do for my kids birthday parties. This year we decided on a live magic show.

Craig Nelson Magic Show was an easy choice for us. He’s local (based out of Chicago Ridge) and I personally know him. My kids have actually seen his school magic show and loved it.

His close up magic show can be held indoors or outdoors. We chose to have him do his magic show in my backyard (because who wants 13 kids in their house!!!!).

Want to know what amazed me most about this magic show? For almost an hour, the kids were mesmerized. You could have heard a pin drop, because they were that into the show. My husband even commented on how amazed he was about how quiet everyone was (and that they just sat there instead of playing in my yard!)

They also loved when their friends got called up to help.

The highlight for Will was when he got to help! (If you can’t tell, he got to help with a magic trick. Each time they did the trick, he got a bigger and bigger magic wand.)

There was a few jokes that went over the kids heads but us parents totally got. :) The kids also loved that he taught them all to do a magic trick. You can see how quickly they all lined up to learn one:

You need a kid magic show? Craig Nelson Magic Show is exactly what you need! I would definitely have him come out again. The show was tailored to exactly what this age group needed. The magic tricks weren’t too complicated, and the kids absolutely loved the close up magic. It was the perfect live magic show.

    Great blog post! I may be partial seeing as how I know this guy, but your kind words describe exactly how I want a parent to feel about hiring me to entertain their kids.

    To share and reciprocate the goodwill, I am going to run a raffle through my Facebook Fan Page (www.facebook.com/TheCraigNelsonMagicShow). If I get 300 likes (I’m at 145 likes now)… I will give a free 1 hour magic lesson. In person locally or via Skype for the long distance fans. Only new fans will be eligible for the prize, but you can’t win unless you like my fan page… http://www.facebook.com/TheCraigNelsonMagicShow
