When it comes to playing cards, magicians can't help saying:
Why do magicians have playing cards signed by spectators? It's such an odd thing to do. Playing cards aren't supposed to be signed. There's something else making the magicians get the names of their audience on their playing cards.
DO THIS: Next time you need a playing card signed, try one of the following:
1) Give an autograph – If a spectator signs a playing card, add some text yourself:
2) Make a wish – Ask the spectator to write on the card, a wish that they would like to come try in the year ahead.
3) Draw a picture – Ask them to draw a picture and then you can add a funny comment under it.
4) Turn it into a spell – Have them sign the playing card at the top. Under it, write: A wish to come true.
Explain that they should keep the playing card safe, and if they ever need a single wish granted, they should make the wish as they tear the card in two. They must keep the playing cards pieces safe, and it may come true.
