Peanut Butter and Jelly trick
The Build Up The magician displays a large jar of Peter Pan Peanut Butter on one side of the stage (or living room) and a jar of jelly on the other side. He covers both jars, and after the magic words, he explains that the peanut butter and jelly have changed places! The kids are skeptical, but they're ready to believe.
The Let Down Before he lifts the covers to verify his claim, he offers to repeat the miracle, "magically" returning the jars to where they first started. The kids are even less convinced than before, in fact they're ready to boo him off the stage.
The Make Good Negotiating for one last chance to prove himself, a child from the audience is invited up to examine two pieces of real bread, which are placed into an ordinary brown paper bag. The child is asked to hold the bag and stand precisely between the two jars. This time, at the magician's command, the Peanut Butter and Jelly change places! He lifts the covers and shows that the change has happened!
The Finale As further proof of the invisible flight across the stage, the Peanut Butter and Jelly left some evidence behind! The child reaches into the bag to remove the bread and instead finds a complete Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich, which is his or hers to keep!
