Each kid had a role in the circus. At first Noah was going to be the ringmaster but I think Amelia took that role on when Noah wasn't sure what to do. Noah ended up being the magician. Megan was the acrobat that was a jack of all trades. Natalie was the animal trainer but Natalie ended up being the animals in the circus and Amelia was the trainer. At first Natalie and Amelia were using their stuffed animals to be the performers but we convinced them that it was more fun for the audience to see Natalie and Amelia perform as themselves.
Here are our performers.
Pulling things out of his hat:
They did a couple acts of disappearing and appearing where we had to close our eyes for the trick to work. Marcie and I tried to record it surreptitiously. I have one recording that shows someone reappear but I don't have them say "close your eyes."
This is what I have from Natalie's performance.
