Hello and welcome to Wonder Kids in 2017! I live in the U.K where the weather is mostly grey and miserable, so being stuck indoors you either get creative or you spend a small fortune at indoor play centres. Wonder Kids is here to help, we have now been making fun at homes for over two years and 2017 is going to see lots of big changes for us.  We started as a very simple hobby/blog getting updated every once in while but now we are growing into a full blown platform that is updated EVERY DAY!

We now have an online magazine, it's free and updated daily.  This is a collaboration effort between myself, some of the worlds best and most popular parenting bloggers and some of the best family entertainers too.  It's not just art's and crafts, there is a vast array of stories from all over the world.  You can either save it to your favourites and read it whenever you have a couple of minutes or you can join flipboard and follow the magazine so you never miss a beat.

Wonder Kids is now split into five different sections, Find out more below.

Seasonal changes with, uh well the seasons and brings the most topical content from Wonder Kids that has been posted over the past two years.  

Video's this is where you can find all of our videos that are split over two you tube channel's.  You'll also find videos from other you tube channels that have featured Wonder Kids over the years and even videos from our many friends that we love and think you may enjoy too.

Kids Kitchen, get the kids to appreciate good healthy food and learn safe kitchen skills all under the guise of having fun, this section features fun games, recipes and videos from our kitchen to yours.

Party Tips, with literally thousands of birthday parties under my belt, anything I don't know about them is not worth knowing.  If you are planning a party go and check this section out.

Re-Mix, this is where my oldest and very first blog posts get completely re-worked, re-imagined and well Re-Mixed into new relevant content for you and your little ones to enjoy.

Wonder Kids Blog

This is the main section of Wonder Kids and it's updated at least once a week (sometimes more).  There are hundreds of ideas covering loads of different topics so I know it might seem a little overwhelming at first.  Make sure you explore Wonder Kids blog, There are a few ways to do this

  1. Use the search bar at the top of the page to search for anything you like, this is great for searching themes like Christmas, Halloween etc
  2. To the right, at the top of the page there is a drop down menu organised by the different topics that I have covered so far.  In the past this dropdown menu was organised by month so you may see that on my older posts
  3. keep scrolling down and you'll find a grid of some of my most recent posts, thats a great place to start. 

To get you started I have included below some of my favourite topics that I have covered remember there is so much more to explore and enjoy so please take your time and make sure you come back regularly for new ideas.
