Magnetic Comb

What You Need:

  • Plastic Comb
  • Paper
  • Ping pong ball

Instructions:

Tell your friends you have a magic, magnetic comb.

  1. Rip up the paper into tiny pieces.
  2. Run the comb through your hair a few times and move it over the small paper fragments.
  3. The paper jumps onto the comb.
  4. Comb your hair a few more times to recharge it’s “magnetic” ability.
  5. Place the ping pong ball on a flat surface and bring the comb close to it.
  6. The ball starts to move towards the comb!

Note:

Your comb itself is not really “magnetic.” By running it through your hair, your’re causing it to get “charged” up with static electricity. This creates a small amount of magnetic activity.
