The hilarious antics of Uncle Chris the Clown kept the little ones in wide-eyed amazement with his high-energy magic at the Building Blocks Daycare on Tuesday, Feb. 26. Uncle Chris rolled into town with a suitcase full of colourful gags and tricks which had everybody blinking their eyes in wonderment.

Youthful volunteers were mystified by scarves and balls which kept mysteriously changing colors, changing shape and multiplying right in their hands. There was a Magic Blankie that helped a bowling ball fly all on its own, a coloring book that seemed to make colors appear and disappear at will and dice that kept changing places on their own.

Uncle Chris, who generously donated some of his time for this show, hails from Kamloops (www.unclechristheclown.com).

Building Blocks Daycare is operated by Yellowhead Community Services in Clearwater.
