Setup: All you need is two medium-sized rubber bands. There are no other special props required. Most tricks with rubber bands work right away with minimal practice, and are still fascinating to watch.
Pro Tip: Carefully practice changing the position of your fingers a few times. Decide which hand is more comfortable for the required moves. For this trick to be effective, we recommend using the same color for both bands.
Tell the story of two ghosts who were always running into each other, then realized they could easily pass through each other with neither one getting hurt. You can create your own narrative that works best with the other tricks in your show.
