Jumping Lights

EFFECT: The spectators sit around a large dining room table and hold hands. Small spirit lights appear on the table and jump about. One jumps high into the air.

EXPLANATION: Get some Mexican jumping beans and paint them with luminous paint. Also obtain a jumping disk from a novelty or magic shop. This is a small round metal disk that when pushed in at the center and laid flat on the table will jump high into the air. This is caused by the center snapping automatically back into its original position. Paint the disk with luminous paint. These properties are carried in your pocket.

To perform the effect, you merely release your hand as explained elsewhere and lay the objects on the table. The beans move around by themselves, but the disk you must set before placing it on the table.
