The clown then holds the cracker between the thumb and middle finger of one hand, palm upwards. He passes his other hand over the first one pretending to grab the cracker in the second hand. Actually he drops the cracker into the open palm of his first hand, closes the palm, thus crumbling the cracker into his hand. He holds his second hand in the air, pointing to it with his first hand, and announces that he will now make the cracker disappear, but he must first sprinkle it with the magic whiffle dust.
He takes his other hand...pretends to grab some whiffle dust from the air...holds the hand over the second hand...and sprinkles the whiffle dust (crushed cracker) over the hand. He then opens the second hand to show the audience that, indeed, the cracker has disappeared. He takes a quick bow.. .and makes a fast exit.
