Wonder Kids

Wayne Wonder Based in Buckinghamshire in the U.K is one of the country's leading children's entertainers and winner of multiple awards across his field.

As a magician and children's entertainer I am constantly on the look out for new ideas, different takes on old ideas and practically anything I can add into my repertoire.  As a by product of this I come across or invent lots of ideas that for one reason or another I can't fit into my shows.  That doesn't mean that they are no good in fact many of them work great for ideas to try at home.  I only realised this after having my daughter and seeing how much she enjoyed them.  That's why I have created this resource, for families to visit take away what they want and try these things at home.  You have everything at your fingertips for great, easy and inexpensive ideas for your little ones at home.  Going out to new experiences and spending time together as a family is important if not crucial to a child's development but that doesn't mean you have to go out and spend lots of money every time, you can create amazing memories just by investing a little bit of time at home with these great ideas.

I would love to know what you think about Wonder Kids blog and how you get on with any of the ideas in fact if you post a picture of your family trying one of the activities from this blog o my Facebook Page I will send you a goodie bag filled with loads of great Wayne Wonder Prizes for FREE!

Moana - Crafts and Games

Moana Wonder Kids Fun

Hello everybody, it's been a bonkers few weeks here at Wonder Kids, July was my busiest ever for my Wayne Wonder Magic Shows with over 40 bookings in a month! This included a show for my old primary school.  I hadn't stepped foot in the place for about 20 years Then with the schools breaking up I've been distracted with having both my wife (who's a teacher) and daughter at home.  Im back today though with a bumper blog post featuring four great Moana fun ideas plus we recently had a trip to Warwick Castle here in the UK so I will write a quick review on that too.

Egg Carton Turtle Wonder Kids

Lets kick this post off with these super cute and easy egg carton turtles. You'll need

  • Egg boxes cut into individual shells
  • green cardboard
  • google eyes
  • pom noms (ideally green)
  • green paint
  • PVA Glue

First paint the egg shells and allow to dry, then cut out flippers from the green cardboard. To do this we found it better to cut out large circles and then cut the flipper shape into the large circles leaving a central base to glue onto the egg shells.

Glue the pom pom heads onto the egg shells and the google eyed onto the pom pom heads, leave to dry and you have adorable little turtles to play with.


Pass the Water Wonder Kids

Love the idea of this game, super fun in the summer heat, line the kids up, now there are two ways of playing this game.  If you have lots of kids you can get two teams to line up.  Fill the first persons cup up in each team with water, they then need to pass the water to the next person, over their heads.  The team with the most water in the cup at the end of the line wins.  The way I prefer to play this is with one line of people and a bucket at either end of the line.  The bucket at the front of the line is filled about half way up. The idea is that the water needs to be transferred from one bucket to the other. The first person fills their cup up and then needs to pass the water down the line as before. The last person then dumps the water in the bucket.  This version uses a lot more water and everybody gets much wetter so its great for the Summer. I think this version is much more fun.


Maui Fish Hook Wonder Kids

Maui Fish Hook

Here is what you need:

Cardboard

Paper towel roll

Newspaper

PVA glue

Acrylic paint

Brown yarn

Brown marker

Directions:

Prepare your area. Lay down some newspaper because this will get a little messy.

Draw a picture of the fish hook onto a piece of cardboard. We made ours about 20″ long.  The handle of the hook should be as long as a paper towel roll. Cut the hook shape out. We used a razor blade to cut ours out. We found it easier than using scissors. Slide the paper towel roll over the handle.

Cover the the hook in paper mache. To prepare the paper mache, tear up newspaper into little strips. Mix white glue with water to form the paste. We did about 3/4 glue to a 1/4 water. Dip the strips of newspaper into the paste and wrap them around the hook and smooth them out. Wrap the hook to add just a little bit of depth and to smooth out the area at the top of the paper towel roll. Let the paper mache dry.

We used a light tan color and did three coats. Set the hook aside to dry. Use a marker to draw tribal like designs on your hook.

To finish this off just wrap the bottom up with brown yarn and enjoy.


Giant Ker Plunk Wonder Kids

Giant KerPlunk

This idea is just too cool not to share. It's so simple too, in the picture they made a basic table themselves but you could just use an Ikea lack table like the one I linked to below.  You don't need to have a hole in the table (although I admit it is better with a hole). Some chicken wire and sticks.  For the sticks you can use wooden dowels, sticks from the garden centre or depending on the size of your game you may be able to use chopsticks.  The chicken wire can be tied together at the rear of the game, put all the wooden dowels into the chicken wire lay this on the table and fill with the balls. Thats it for our Moana fun, check out our other ideas below and come back soon for some brand new themes.

Moana - Healthy Snacks

Moana fun from Wonder Kids

This time we are going to explore some very tasty treats that would fit perfectly with a Moana theme, also a great way of getting the kids into the kitchen, they can help put the kebabs together and with chopping up some of the veg too.

Moana Chicken Kebabs

Marinade

  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup canned pineapple juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil , plus more for brushing grill
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 4 garlic cloves , minced (4 tsp)
  • 1 Tbsp minced ginger
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil

For the skewers

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil , plus more for brushing grill
  • 1 3/4 lb boneless , skinless chicken breast, chopped into 1 1/4-inch cubes
  • 3 cups (heaping) fresh cubed pineapple (about 3/4 of 3 lb pineapple)
  • 1 1/2 large green peppers , diced into 1 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 large red onion , diced into 1 1/4-inch pieces

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl whisk together ketchup, brown sugar, soy sauce, pineapple juice, 2 Tbsp olive oil, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger and sesame oil. Stir in 3/4 tsp pepper and season with salt if desired. Place chicken in a gallon size resealable bag. Reserve 1/2 cup of the marinade in refrigerator then pour remaining marinade over chicken. Seal bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (meanwhile soak 10 wooden skewer sticks in water for 1 hour).

  2. Preheat a grill over medium heat to 400 degrees. Meanwhile, drizzle remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil over red onion, bell pepper and pineapple and toss. Season red onion and bell pepper with salt and pepper, then thread red onion, bell pepper, pineapple and chicken onto skewers until all of the chicken has been used. Brush grill grates with olive oil then place skewers on grill. Grill 5 minutes then brush along tops with 1/4 cup of remaining marinade. Rotate to opposite side and brush remaining 1/4 cup of marinade on opposite side and allow to grill about 4 minutes longer.

Show Stopping Water melon

Show Stopping Water melon Sea Turtle

Wow, this will make jaws drop, it's time consuming but not too hard to make.  Take a water melon and using a melon baller scoop out some balls and keep refrigerated.  Discard the remaining flesh.  carve the pattern on the back of the water melon and attache the flippers and head with cocktail sticks.  Now you will need to add the other melon's so again with the melon baller, get some Cantaloupe and Honey Dew melons.  Add those balls with the water melon's balls inside the sea turtle and finish off with some chopped strawberries.  Again the kids can get involved and help make the balls, attache the flippers etc and this will get them excited about trying different fruit's too. Before we go I have one more quick idea, that is fun and healthy and again the kids will love playing with the food.  This makes fruit so much more appealing to kids.  Banana palm trees! Come back next Tuesday for some great Moana Crafts you can get busy with.

Moana - Birthday Party Ideas

Moana fun from Wonder Kids

The time has come folks for us to start a brand new theme, My Disney review is finished and boy it was a mammoth job reviewing Disneyland Paris, you can read it here.  I am really trying to take my time going through Disney Princess's, well technically lets get it straight Moana is NOT a princess she is the daughter of a chief! I try to only cover one per year because they're an easy option to pick and I think they will be somewhat timeless so no need to burn through them too quickly.

I really enjoyed Moana though, the story is archetypal Disney, the music is brilliant and I think they did a great job representing Polynesian cultures, not perfect, Ive heard some people are not happy about the portrayal, but I think Disney did a brilliant job, much better than say in Pocahontas and Aladdin.

This week is going to be all about a Moana birthday party, giving you some ideas on what you can do and some free print outs to use too.  I have planned four Moana posts and all of the ideas could be used at a Moana birthday party, but today we will be looking specifically at birthday parties. Lets start with some cup cake toppers, a Moana birthday banner and of course party invites.  All are free to download and print as needed.

So thats a great start to a Moana party but how about some colouring pages, these are great to have printed out and ready for the kids to colour in as they arrive at the party.  Just click on the pictures to print them out.

Lets look at some decoration inspiration next.  I love the grass skirt for tables, one or two of these will really transform an area.  I also like these floral numbers and letters, You can buy paper mache letters and numbers from hobby craft, you can slo find fake flowers from their or online may be cheaper.  Then just glue the flowers all over the letter make sure you pick bright colourful flowers for a tropical feel.

Were are going to finish off this week with some cake inspiration, Some simple, some are super complex. Let us know which one is your favourite on our Facebook page. Thats it for this week but make sure you come back next Tuesday for more great Moana fun.

Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary - Studio's Park

Disneyland Paris Studios review

Welcome to the fifth and final part of our Disneyland review, we all had an amazing time there and we are planning to go back in a few years. Im hoping that by then they will have built a Star Wars land and we are thinking of trying to book a date closer to Halloween so we get to see more villains. This time we are going to talk about the Studio's Park which was my favourite part of our trip, the rides were better, it has the great Ratatouille restaurant and the Ratatouille ride plus loads more! Before we crack on mack sure you have read the previous parts of this review below.

Ok where to start? lets start at the beginning, we spent out first evening at Disney in the Studio's Park because we had booked our first meal at Bistrot Chez Remy.  We stayed quite close to the restaurant, which has a large real water fountain outside, in fact Disney have made this area feel very Parisian, it does feel like you are in a little bit of Paris with some lovely music playing too.  Right next door to the restaurant is the ratatouille ride, although it was too busy for us to ride on our first day we did get on it another day and it's a great ride, very cleverly put together.  You ride around in cars and the idea is that you become a rat in Remy's kitchen/restaurant, it's all done very well however there is one point where a Champagne bottle had its corked popped directly at you and I feel that this should have had a splash of water hit you in the face but nothing happened and I think that was a missed opportunity to really bring the ride to life.

Adjacent to this Remy area is the Toy Story Playland, which felt much more dedicated to younger children and it has some brilliant photo opportunity points.  In this area you will find:-

  • RC Racer
  • Slinky Dog ZigZag Spin
  • Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop

We didn't get to go on the RC racer but it looked like a great ride, we did try the other two though which are very gentle rides perfect for small children, watch the video below for more details on these.

So that was my first experience in the Studio's park but whats it like to spend almost an entire day in the park? I'll assume that you will be coming from the Disney Village so you will need to just bare to the left slightly to find the Studios Park (it's not like it's hard to find, it's huge!) When you enter the park you're in a courtyard like area called the Front Lot.  This is where you will find all the customer services like the Studio's Services that I mentioned before for disabilities.  There is also a meet and greet here every day, during our stay it was Goofy everyday. You then need to walk into Studio 1 to enter the Studio's park, you will be greeted with an arcade of restaurants, all loosely based on films, there are loads of different types of food here, some fast food some restaurants but we didn't get a chance to try any of these.At the end of this arcade you walk out of the building into the studio park with a huge statue of Walt and Mickey.  You'll be able to see the Studio Tram Tour directly in front of you.

This ride is a very gentle ride with a video playing walking you through some real sets that were used in films so it's great for some pictures, you will see more in the video above.  There is a highlight on this ride, you get to see some special FX on a set and it's really good but the rest of this ride is just meh.

You'll also see The Art of Disney Animation which again has a lot of meh about it until at the end of this tour guide, museum experience you get to learn how to draw a Disney character.  I learned to draw Winnie the Pooh, now I can not draw to save may life in fact a few years back my daughter asked me to draw her a princess which she could then colour in.  This was a normal request for her because my wife is a very good artist and would draw many pictures for her.  So I put a lot of effort into this princess for her with a big gown and long her etc.  I was quite proud of it but as soon as I showed it to my daughter she cried, not of laughter but genuine disappointment of just how bad it was.  So coming with no drawing skills what so ever and being able to create the Winnie the Pooh below was amazing to me.

Opposite the Animation museum is the Animagique Theatre where different shows take place, these shows are free to attend and I highly recommend you catch the Mickey and the Magician show which I reviewed here. Next to this are two rides, Flying carpets over Agrabah and Crush's Coaster. We got on the Flying Carpet ride very quickly with little to no queue, this is a basic fairground ride similar to the Dumbo ride in the main park but again Disney do the theming very well, with the voice of the Geenie talking to you the whole time. Crush's Coaster is a very deceptive ride, it's all under cover apart from one small exposed piece of track.  From the outside this looks like quite gentle roller coaster maybe good for kids? but look more carefully at the big blue building, specifically how high the building is.  This shows just how high up you are going to go on the ride.  I went on this with my 7yr old who is just as much a thrill seeker as I am so we had no problem with this ride.  We went on with my sister and my mum who both prefer much slower rides so it was a bit of a shock for them just how fast this coaster goes.  It doesn't go upside down but it is all quite dark and it is a fast coaster.  I would rate it as an intermediate coaster, not for very small children but also not a real intense coaster either.

Round the other side of the park is the Back Lot where the more intense rides are kept and the Stunt Show is housed here too. You will pass the Tower of Terror which you can hear all day long the screams of the people riding it, we didn't get a chance to ride this but basically it looks like a much more extreme version of the Parachute Drop.  Near the Tower of Terror you will find a stage, which looks like a temporary set up but I'm not sure.  This is where you find the Star Wars characters doing a meet and greet, the first order march with Captain Phasma and they do some sort of show on stage too but again we missed this.  I did catch some of the Storm Troopers and The First Order March  which you can see in the video above.  The first ride you come to here is Armageddon which is less a ride and more an experience from the film. That is if you can remember the film that was first released almost 20 years ago.  We did go on this and I really wasn't impressed, I think this ride is outdated and can now be replaced. Don't waste your time going on this.  Opposite this ride is the Blockbuster Cafe which is split into two halves, one half is dedicated to Iron Man and the other half Pirates of the Caribbean.  

A little walk down from here and you may well spot a very special bin, you can see this bin in action in the video above.  There are also some nice photo opportunities here with a very welcome umbrella that rains on you, especially welcome in 34℃ heat. You have the Rock 'n' Roller Aerosmith coaster here, this was easily one of my favourite rides and it is an extreme coaster.  All indoors and again I think maybe it's a little dated.  Maybe it should be a Foo Fighters ride these days? Lots of great music on this ride and music themed posters as you queue.  We used the fast track system which I explained here.  This system does not get used enough.  You get to walk past a music studio and Aerosmith appear in some video's too.  The ride is brilliant though, only myself and my 7yr old went on this one but we loved it. Just outside this ride is another meet & greet area which was Spiderman during our stay.  He's kind of tucked away again it's almost like it's a secret that he is there. The final attraction here was the Stunt Show, this is a very popular show and it takes place in a very large arena.  Im not much of a motor head, So I appreciated the clever tricks like remote controlled cars but speeding along and doing wheelies just isn't my thing.  I could tell though thats lots of people were loving it.  Unlike other stunt shows I have seen there isn't really a story to this one.  It actually reminded me of Top Gear but for stunts (not that I watch Top Gear) The presenters go into quite some detail to explain how popular stunts are done in action films, they are then recreated.  I prefer a story line, have a great story line with stunts included and I think this show would be better.  Even after all of this I would still see it again because of the ending, I'm not going to tell you what it is, watch the video above and I have kept just the smallest teaser for you, no spoilers here!

We have come to the end of this massive review from our time at Disneyland Paris.  We all loved it, I think I preferred the Studios park because it was a little quieter and the rides a little more extreme combined with some great activities like the animator and brilliant shows like Mickey and the Magician.  Please do take the time to have a look around this site, and just get in touch through social media if you have any questions or think I missed anything. Make sure you like our Facebook page opposite too.  Right we are off to get back on track with more arts and crafts starting with a Moana themed month!

Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary - Restaurants & Shows

Disneyland Paris Wonder kids Review Restaurants

Welcome to the penultimate episode of this epic review for Disneyland Paris in 2017.  So we are nearly at the end of the review, this week we are looking at the restaurants we visited and why we chose them, we'll also review some of the shows you can catch around the park with plenty of tips and tricks along the way too. If you are only just starting to plan or think about a trip to Disneyland or maybe you are trying to save up for a trip than I have something that may interest you.  If your kids still have birthday's coming up before you go then have a look at the Birthday Party Boxes I have for sale.  At less than £100 per box with FREE delivery they really offer amazing value for money and will be one of the most inexpensive parties you can do. A brilliant concept that I have put together, A complete party in a box, using all my experience in the party industry, just click on the kit pictured, the range available is growing every month. Before we kick off this weeks new review make sure you have read all the other blog posts first.

Booking the Restaurants

You need to book the restaurants you want to go too.  I think this is just good practise no matter what time of the year you are going.  You can book the restaurants from 60 days before your arrival, so make sure you have planned every restaurant you would like to eat in by then.  Some of the more popular restaurants get booked up really fast, so as soon as it's 60 days before you arrive get on the phone and start booking.  One little confusing hiccup we had was that the Disney employee we spoke to when booking our restaurants tried to claim that you could only book from 60 days prior to eating at a restaurant, the difference this makes is that lets say if you are going for a week long holiday, lets say arriving on a Saturday and you call up 60 days before you are due to arrive on the Saturday they said that we could only book the meal for the Saturday not for our other nights there as it was more than 60 days before we would be eating there? 

Did that make sense? Im getting confused just typing it, we managed to explain that in their advertising it says to make reservations 60 days before your arrival not before eating at each restaurant and they did let us carry on with our bookings.  Another thing you might come across is that with some of the character meet & greet restaurants Disney have to make sure that the restaurant will have enough people dinning with them to justify opening the restaurant, so with ADC if they only have 3 tables booked on a certain day they may try to move your booking however this can go the other way too, so if they get lots of people wanting to book a certain date that they weren't planning to open on then they may open the restaurant for an extra date, this happened with us at ADC on the Sunday that we stayed, we wanted an early evening meal to fit in after the parade and before the Princess Waltz but initially Disney were only offering Sunday lunch slot.  We came back to them and due to so much demand they opened the restaurant later because they could fill it.

So what restaurants are in the park? quick answer is there are loads, so I have listed below a quick link list for some of the most popular places to eat. Go and check them out, below I have included the reviews for the places that we ate in. The video below shows way more than the few pictures I have included with every review.

Restaurants we ate in and reviewed below

Just some of the other restaurants

For the shows you will need a programme which you can find here.

Bistrot Chez Remy

This was our first restaurant, it's located in the Studio's Park and it's based on the film Ratatouille. The theming/decorations in this place are incredible, we had seen a few youtube video's where characters from this film are walking around the restaurant and we wrongly assumed that they did this all the time.  It was another reason for us booking this restaurant and we were disappointed on the day to see that there weren't any characters in the restaurant.  Once we got back we looked into it and none of the Disney advertising mentions character meets at this restaurant so it was our mistake and assumption.  We still loved the restaurant and the food was fantastic, we were actually served by a Brit which was very pleasant on our first meal of the weekend. Main courses we had were Steak, Sea Bass, Cod and the kids had Spaghetti with ratatouille.  Obviously there is lots of Ratatouille on the menu, it comes with nearly every dish which was great for me, I loved it. 

Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show

This was something really different and personally my favourite meal of our time there.  Not because the quality of the food was amazing (although the food was perfectly exceptable).  This is a much more informal meal.  This meal is all about the show which not only features cowboy's and brilliant horses but you will also see native Americans and buffalo's too.  The seating is not allocated, it's first come first served so get there about an hour before the show starts, the entrance area is also a bar with a live band.  We all bought drinks but you do get drinks included with your meal too. Once you have some drinks go and stand near one of the large staircases.  Do not stand near the stage for the live band.  Once the barrier opens get up there as quick as you can, there are plenty of seats for everybody so theres no need to push or anything but the first up get the best seats. The show gets off to a slow start but the action picks up with loads of stunts and games played.  You get real audience interaction with some great entertainers actually coming right up to you and a free Cowboy hat that you get to keep.  The stadium is split into four different sections I believe, each section has a different colour which is indicated by a band around your cowboy hat, we were on the yellow team and had to cheer on the yellow cowboy's. Food wise, you start with chilli and cornbread, followed by a barbecue meat selection and potatoes, desert was apple crumble with ice cream.  I couldn't even manage a desert there was so much food. Drinks are served throughout the show, I had three beers and a coke, you can also get water too. For kids they don't get the chilli but they do get a small barbecue meat selection and potatoes followed by an ice lolly which my daughter was very happy with.  Like I said this meal isn't about having award winning food but the whole experience with just how much food and drink was on offer combined with a brilliant live show with amazingly talented people and animals was amazing.

Mickey and the Magician

This show seems to go a little under the radar and you don't pay anything extra for it, you just need to queue up and go in.  I think because it's not charged extra for then people think it can't be any good? Trust me when I say that this show should not be missed! Again get to the theatre at least an hour before the show starts, check your programme for the timings.  You just have to wait I'm afraid so maybe try packing a busy pack to keep the kids amused whilst you wait.  I wrote about them years ago, you could take a modern version and maybe even Disney Theme it.

This is a full on West End style production, in fact it felt a little like an advert for all of the Disney west end shows, you get a little snip-it from each of there most popular shows, such as Aladdin and Lion King with plenty of other characters making appearances too.  The story is that Mickey Mouse is a cleaner for a magician that seems to live in a French studio loft apartment.  Obviously Mickey is a bit of a dreamer and starts to meddle with things that maybe he shouldn't.  Im not going to spoil the show and I have included some pictures that are promo pictures from Disney, no photography is allowed in the theatre. Trust me you won't be disapointed, just plan the time to go and see it.

ADC

Located near the castle, this wouldn't normally be the kind of restaurant that we would pick to eat at but for us this was all about meeting some princess's.  We didn't want to waste time in the park queuing up for hours at the Princess Pavillion to meet one or two princess's so this was a kill two birds with one stone option.  We had to eat and we met princess's whilst we did it.  We were pleasantly surprised at this restaurant. The food was not big quantities but it was a three course meal so we were all filled by the end, the quality of the food will blow you away though.  Everything was cooked and served to perfection.  They even had a special 25th Anniversary menu that you could pick from in addition to the standard menu.  This 25th Anniversary menu had steak and a special desert on it however I can not remember what the starters were.  I had prawns, followed by veal encroute and then I think some sort of cheesecake.  All of it was amazing and to top everything off we got to meet loads of characters.  I have no idea if you normally meet so many characters in one visit but we met, Cinderella, Ariel, Snow White, Aurora, Suzy and Perla all of whom signed my daughters autograph book.

Princess Waltz 

This is like a mini show, it only lasts about 15 minutes, in fact watch the video above and you'll hear my daughter at the end of the show say "Is that it?" at the end.  This was not my cup of tea but again there is no additional fee for this just check your programme for start times.  We planned it perfectly so that we only had a few minutes after our meal at ADC before this show started.  This show is on the Castle Stage which is only around the corner from the ADC restaurant kind of opposite the entrance to Discoveryland. All of the princess's are in the show and they dance and sing, my daughter enjoyed it as did all of the other kids.  I don't think there were any really well known songs featured which would bring this show up a level, make it more interactive and get the kids to sing a long would make this show better.

Annette's Diner

This was our last meal at DLP, we chose it because it mentions in Disney's advertising that the staff are on skates and we thought that would be cool to go and see however again once we got there they said that they weren't on skates today.  Located in the Disney Village It's a nice place to go and have some food though, we were having a late lunch and found the portions to be very generous.  I have heard of many people just sharing food rather than ordering for every person. Themed like a 50/60's diner with appropriate music too.   

Thats it for this walk ladies and gentleman but make sure you come back next week for my final review where I explore the Studio's Park, this was easily my favourite park at Disney and I'll tell you why next week.
