The performer displays a children's magic colouring book with black and white pictures - the kind you just paint over with water, and the pictures magically appear. The children are asked to try and colour the pictures by real magic, using their imagination, instead of water. They are told to rub their fingers on the colours on their clothes, and "throw the colours" at the book. When the book is now displayed, all the pictures have been fully coloured. The performer congratulates the audience on their magic abilities, and excellent artistic talents. However, he states he has to perform the same trick again for another show the next day, and since they have coloured all the pictures, there will be no pictures left for the children to colour at his next performance. He asks his audience to help him erase some of the colours with imaginary "magic" erasers. The children pantomime rubbing off the colours, and when the book is flipped through again, it is found to be entirely blank. Obviously they used too much magic. The performer requests them to draw some of the pictures with imaginary pencils. When the book is again flipped through, the black and white pictures are back in the book, "ready for the next performance".
The book uses Nursery Rhyme pictures, familiar to all children, with art work for the book specially done so that the kids can easily identify their favourite rhymes by the single picture.
