Greet guests with top hats, capes, and wands. Create easy centerpieces! Set one top hat upside-down on each table of the party area. Place a stuffed rabbit in one. Make oversized playing cards by drawing hearts, spades, diamonds, clubs, and numbers with black and red markers on rectangles of white poster board. Scatter playing cards on tables and windowsills. Cut starburst shapes out of dark purple, blue and black construction paper and write magical sayings on them with metallic gold and silver markers. Use words such as "Abracadabra", "Hocus Pocus", "Presto Change-O", and "Alacazam". Hang these around the party area.
Make edible magic wands by dipping pretzel sticks in melted chocolate, letting them cool, and then sprinkling one end with coconut, white sprinkles, or sugar. Use cookie cutters in the shape of rabbits, stars, and top hats to cut out slices of cheese and serve with crackers. Serve cool drink, water, fruit punch, chocolate milk, or regular milk with silly straws. Serve "magic potion. Freeze cranberry and grape juice in ice cube trays before the party. Serve a colourless cool drink at the party, such as ginger ale or lemonade. Let your guests select their ice cubes, which will "magically" change the colour of their drinks.

Hocus Pocus Fun
Wands to decorate: Use a pack of wood sticks. Find some good stickers to decorate with or use washable markers.
Coffee or Tea?
What You'll Need: A pen or marker, a sheet of paper and a hat
At the Party: Fold the piece of paper into thirds. Write "Tea" on the top and bottom sections. On the middle third, write "Coffee." Roughly tear the paper along the two fold lines to separate the three sections. Show the audience the words, and then toss the pieces of paper into the hat. Stir them around thoroughly, or let an audience member mix up the pieces of paper in the hat. Then, hold the hat behind your back, and ask the audience if they prefer coffee or tea. Tell them you must concentrate to "feel the words" while you fish around in the hat with your free hand. If the audience picks tea, feel for a piece of paper with only one rough edge. If they pick coffee, feel for a piece with two rough edges. Display your ability to pick what they ask for every time!
Who has the wand: Have one person in the middle close their eyes, while the other people circle around him and pass the wand around. When you shout stop, the person with the wand must hid it behind their back, and all the others in the circle put their hands behind their back also. The middle person then opens their eyes and tried to guess who has the wand.
What You Need:Mini stuffed rabbits, a top hat and tape
Place a piece of tape on the floor so the kids can keep track of where to stand. Set the hat 6 to 8 feet from the line. Let the kids take turns tossing the rabbit into the hat. Each child gets three tosses per turn.
Pick a Colour:
What You'll Need: Several brightly coloured crayons
At the Party: Ask a member of the audience to secretly select a crayon while you stand with your back to the audience. Put your hands behind your back, and have the participant place the mystery crayon in your hands. As you stand with your back turned, pretend to concentrate for a few moments. Explain to your audience that you are "beginning to see the colour;" at the same time, secretly make a mark on your thumbnail with the crayon. Then, have the participant remove the crayon from your hands and hide it. Before you turn around, look down at your thumbnail to see the colour. Memorize it, turn around to your audience, and announce the colour. They will be completely amazed!
