The classic "magician in trouble" style of trick is always a big hit!
Show a large frame with three open cutout windows, and a jumbo playing card.This jumbo card is your prediction of which card the volunteer will choose.Place the card into the frame.The back of the card can be seen through the cutout windows. You can let other spectators see the face of the card, yet hide it from your volunteer.In this case, the prediction card is seen to be the Queen of Hearts.Let your spectator choose a card from an ordinary deck (not included- use your own deck).In this case, the volunteer chose the 10 of Spades.
The spectators who saw the prediction think the magician is in trouble!They think you predicted the Queen of Hearts, yet your volunteer chose the 10 of Spades!
Now for the magic!When you turn the card frame around to reveal your prediction-it is now the 10 of Spades!
So simple, this is an excellent trick for the new magician. Shows up well for a small group or classroom too!
