Pulling a rabbit out of a hat
To perform this trick, you’ll need a rabbit, a tablecloth-covered table, a piece of cloth, and a top hat. Take a square piece of thick black cloth and tie all of it’s four corners together loosely. Place a rabbit inside this improvised sack. Hang the sack on a hook, located at the side of the table that will be facing you during the performance. The tablecloth needs to be arranged in such a way as to prevent the audience from seeing the sack. At the beginning of the performance, show the top hat to your audience to demonstrate that there’s nothing inside. Next, put the hat on the table, with the hat opening facing the table surface.

Now, make some movements showing that you’re conjuring something up, remove the hat from the table and reveal the rabbit to the audience!
