Prestidigitation is a noun that means sleight of hand.

Our word of the day gets its origin by combining presto (PRESS toe) the Italian word for ‘quick’ and  digitus (DEE gee toos) the Latin word for ‘finger.’ Often used to describe the work of magicians, prestidigitation can also be used in other contexts, such as: I was fooled by the thief’s prestidigitation. If I hadn’t seem him secretly put a candy bar in his pocket, I would have never known what was happening.
