Round and round and round it goes, when will it stop? Nobody knows!
Not a magic trick but a great scientific novelty that kids (and big kids!) love.
The Effect: Pull the cord and it whirls and twirls, balancing perfectly on a piece of string or the point of a pen. The built in red LED lights up as it spins giving it an almost hypnotic effect!
Presentation ideas: There are lots of things you can do this fun spinning novelty. How about balancing it on a piece of string like a tight rope walker. Or the end of a wand, pencil, or stiff rope held by a volunteer - turning a simple toy into a balancing wonder! The stiff rope is a prop that we stock, where a soft rope suddenly turns rigid and can be held at the fingertips horizontally. Balancing the Gyroscope on the end makes for a tightrope-type stunt, with the gyroscope spinning on the narrow rope.
Take this scientific marvel for a spin!
Pro Tips: Have your volunteer hold the string as you balance the gyroscope on it. They get the all the credit! Or have the child pull the cord on the UFO, involving them in the effect and empowering them by helping you make the 'magic' work.
Gospel ideas: Getting Away With It?- For a moment the Gyroscope appears to do its own thing, breaking the laws of gravity. But inevitably it will fall over. Just as we can get away with 'bad' things for a while before the inevitable happens, we fall and have to face the consequences of breaking God's laws.
The Fall - Adam and Eve had a perfect wonderful life - but they disobeyed God and fell from perfection just as the perfectly balanced gyroscope looses it's spin and falls over. But God forgives, and if we fall he can pick us up again and keep us stable and steadfast.
A Balanced Life! With God in our life we can keep upright, and lead a well-balanced life. He prevents us from toppling over, even when we have a wobble. It's the wheel inside the Gyroscope that keep it's spinning, and God is a 'wheely' good saviour! In fact, He is a 'revolution' and knows how to put a positive 'spin' on your life!
In a Spin! God created the earth, which is constantly moving and turning at high speeds. But sometimes things happen that can make it feel like our world is falling apart, but again God picks us up if we believe and follow His word.
