The ketchup is getting very sleepy…

You don’t need a wand and fancy cape to perform a seriously impressive magic trick. In fact, for Enchanted Ketchup all you need is a water bottle and ketchup packet, although mustard or relish will do just as nicely.

You will need:

  • a large plastic bottle
  • a condiment packet
  • a magician’s little helper

Step 4

When it hits the bottom, slowly release the bottle to send it back up. (With a little practice you can freeze the packet mid-bottle.)
