What you will need:

  1. A pencil


  1. Hold the pencil horizontally at one end between your thumb and index finger.
  2. With a loose grip, quickly move your hand up and down (you don’t have to move your hand too far).

You will begin to notice that the pencil appears to be made out of rubber!

This is a trick that you can practice to perfect before showing to others.
