In a word.... no. Those effects are more for the 5 and under crowd.

My advice is to take the effects you know and adapt them for your audience rather than learning new effects. That being said, I'd be glad to help you select effects (both from stuff you have and from new stuff) and outline the show.

We can do it in this thread or through PMs. Let me know what effects, books, DVD, etc. you have now, what you are willing to spend and how long you have to prepare.

If it's a group of kids 7-10, don't do tricks to treat them like little kids. Do tricks that are engaging and get the audience involved with the magic.

Although I am not a professional, my only focus is kids....some of my best tricks that kids seem to enjoy are...

Coin Magic
Rope tricks
Sponge balls
Card Tricks that require audience participation, usually no gimmicks...
I would suggest you use a stage set up and don't walk around unless you are very skilled, kids this age will be into everything, pockets, close, etc. if you do not keep it somewhat controlled...

Most important have fun....they will!
