Question Magic ideas?

Hi,
I'm looking for some advice for my show.
I'd like to add a magic piece to my act. However, it needs to satisfy some conditions
1) can be watched from any angle
2) can be seen by a pitch of 50+
3) preferably self-working; a trick that emphasizes the acting of a magician rather than the physical dexterity of sleights, etc.
4) ideally includes a audience volunteer, especially a child

I have seen an escape trick done in this situation as well as the coins into a can trick. Any other suggestions?
thanks,
jeremy

The classic street trick is Slydini's paper balls over the head. nearly any trick can be adapted to these conditions. If you're going to do magic and you don't want skill tricks, you should at least be creative. Personally I don't know how magicians live with themselves.
