The students at Rimbey Elementary School were treated to a magical morning when Steve Harmer stopped by to visit.

Steve Harmer from Motivational Magic entertained the children with his show, Be a Bucket Filler last Tuesday.

The magician, who brought with him a number of brightly coloured plastic buckets and produced several other props during his presentation. He spoke to the children about the importance of showing kindness and caring to others; characteristics which when exercised, filled people’s buckets.

“Every time we show kindness and caring it comes back,” Harmer explained to the children. “Think win/win. If you fill someone else’s bucket, your bucket gets filled, too.”

The charismatic magician said everyone needs to have their buckets filled and everyone can learn to be a bucket filler.

“It doesn’t matter how old you are,” he said. “Say something kind, smile, or say thank you. And remember you can never go on a holiday from kindness and caring.”

Harmer managed to hold the children’s attention while giving his motivational message by adding a little magic to the show, including producing Charlie the Dove, seemingly out of nowhere. He assured the students the dove was a real bird, even allowing some little ones in the front row to feel its feathers, which seemed very real, indeed.

He also turned a regular sized scarf into a scarf that seemed endless and performed a number of other tricks that truly seemed magical. A few of the children were selected from the audience to participate in the show, which added to the fun.
