Ever thought of learning an easy magic trick or two to use as a party trick? Let these professional magicians from The MADgicians show you the ropes

No matter how old we get, there's just something about magic shows that would still impress us and leave us bewildered. That's also why we thought it'd be fun to have real-life magicians come perform at our last #BuroTurnsThree party, be it close-up magic among the guests or jaw-dropping illusion shows onstage. Yes, it's not just clowns who can do magic tricks for children's birthday parties. There are pros too like the group The MADgicians who performed at our anniversary party last year. Intrigued, we decided to ask them to show us a few easy magic tricks that we can do too.

From making a salt shaker disappear into the table to making a ring travel up a rubber band, you'll be able to master them in five minutes! At least, it'd make for a great party trick. They also show us a few close-up magic tricks using just cards and coins. Be prepared to be amazed.

Watch the video above to learn how you can perform simple magic tricks at home too!

Alternatively, if you rather witness their magic upclose or have them perform at your party, you can check out The MADgicians via their website, Facebook and Instagram.
