was going to treat you to plate spinning this week, but plate spinning requires the use of special plates made for the act, and it is unlikely you have them around the house. But you do probably have a hat nearby, and with it you can begin to learn some cool moves to impress your hat-admiring friends.
This guy has many videos to help jugglers get started (you can watch hom teach you to spin plates, too!). Here he walks through a handful of hat tricks.
As with anything, practice makes perfect. Grab your hat, get in front of a mirror, and try to toss it on your head while looking calm, cool and collected. Then do it enough times to make it a habit.
Who says old dogs can’t learn new tricks?
If you are serious about hat manipulation, you might enjoy this video of Ivan Kojevnikov combining hat tricks with magic and juggling. He can toss a hat and a lit cigar from his foot to his mouth, ending with the hat balancing on his cigar.
