Now for the fun stuff: magic. Well, kind of. One well known performance that perfectly illustrates sleight of hand is Cup and Balls. It has infinitely many adaptations and variations, but the principle behind them is the same: you make balls appear and disappear using a combination of misdirection and opaque cups big enough to hide the balls.
