Show the coins
Display the coins on a table. Then show the audience the four coins: a penny, a dime, and two nickels.
Tell them a story
Tell the audience you have 21 cents to purchase candy.
Place the coins
Place the shell nickel in your palm, shell-side up. Then, place the penny, dime, and the other nickel on top.
As you're doing this, ask the audience to help you count. When they add up the coins, they should say "21 cents."
Press down with finger
Make a fist and press your fingers down to snap the coins in place inside the shell. You now have what appears to be one nickel in your hand.
Take away coin
Tell the audience you forgot to purchase a piece of candy for your sister so you're going to take a nickel out of your hand and place in it your pocket.
Keep hand in fist
Keeping your hand still in a fist, ask them how much money should be in your hand now that you took a nickel away. They should say "16 cents."
Open your hand to reveal the magically disappeared coins.
