This was the first trick I ever learned at age 14! It is an amazing transformation of 3 ropes from different lengths, to the same length, and then back again! It can be fully examined and I usually toss it out to the children to try it out.
Wilber the elf is one of my favorite elves, but not too bright. He loves to help me with projects, so I had packed 3 of my Santa Bags for delivery to all of the children.
I asked him to bring me three ropes to tie them up, so being the helpful elf he is, he runs to get them for me. What does he bring back? This! (Show them the 3 ropes.) I had three big backs and 3 different sizes of rope!!
Horatio is the smartest elf! He shows us how to fix this little problem with a little elf magic!
