The ketchup is getting very sleepy...

You don’t need a wand and fancy cape to perform some seriously impressive magic. In fact, for Enchanted Ketchup all you need is a water bottle and ketchup sachet, although mustard or relish will do just as nicely.

 

 

You will need:

  • a large plastic bottle
  • a condiment sachet
  • a magician’s little helper

Call your little helper to hypnotise the ketchup. You read that right.

Step 3

Step 3

Draw a lot of attention to your pointing finger and away from your other hand. Then, slowly squeeze the bottle. When the sachet starts to drop move your finger, as if with great effort. Remember – you’re controlling the sachet!

Step 4

Step 4

When it hits the bottom, slowly release the bottle to send it back up. (With a little practice you can freeze the sachet mid-bottle.)
