"Juggling" or "sleight of hand tricks"

the term "ألعاب الخفة" in Arabic denotes two types of entertainment activities done by performers, and you should check which apply in your texts:
1. Juggling: which is a physical skill involving the "manipulation of objects" for recreation, entertainment, art or sport.
2. Sleight of hand tricks: fine motor skills used by performing artists and is "closely associated with close-up magic, card magic, card flourishing".
