The Great Disappearing Hand Trick

It never gets old, at least not for Molly. It seems that kids have an extremely high tolerance for repetition. The Great Hand-ini performs the great disappearing hand trick about 50 times a day. Each and every time she cracks herself up.

This trick involves pulling her hand up inside her shirt sleeve. She makes and audible gasp as to attract an audience (usually me).

She waits until I shriek in horror that her hand is missing. At this point she pretends to look everywhere for the missing hand until she accidentally discovers it tucked up her sleeve.

She gives the missing hand a tug with her free hand and voila, the missing hand reappears.
