Wonder Kids Blog

Wayne Wonder Based in Gloucestershire 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.

Fairies Activity Pack

I can't believe it's taken this long for a fairies activity pack.  My daughter loves fairies, So we will be trying these ideas out once the weather gets a little bit nicer.

First we have a bunch of colouring pages, just click the button below and I found a recipe for great summer ice cones. 

This looks like a great activity that kids would love to help make and it should last quite while as a nice keep sake to go in their bedrooms.  

Fairy Garden Discovery Bottle

What you need

  • Plastic cup or large mason jar (make sure the lid secures very tightly)
  • Glitter
  • Water
  • Pipe Cleaner
  • Mini Pom poms
  • Small toy fairy (kinder eggs often have them)

In this example we are going to use plastic cups which used to contain fruit as they have a really secure lid. Use a glue gun to stick it together but a strong all purpose glue would also work.

Step 1

First I stuck the pipe cleaner onto the lid of the plastic cup. I had to do this part as the glue is hot. While we left it to dry Molly stuck some ladybird and butterfly onto the outside of the cup.

Step 2

We half filled the cup with water. Then added the glitter, pom poms and embellishments.  Fill to the top with water. We also stuck the toy fairy into the centre of the pipe cleaner.

Step 3

The add glue around the lid and then stick it quickly onto the cup.  Glue on the outside around the lid to make sure it is watertight. Leave to dry.

After a few weeks you may see the dye of the different elements colour the water or the toy fairy.

The last activity in this pack is easily my favourite.  I am doing this in the summer with Megan.

Fairy Garden

What you'll need:

  • Moss
  • Flowers
  • shells/rocks
  • Saucer
  • Bird Houses
  • Large Planter
  • Compost
  • Small picket fence (optional)

Most of this should be available from your local garden centre.

Firstly you'll probably need to paint the bird house's, this is a great activity for the kids.

Then once they are dry, lay out how you want your fairy garden to look.  The get to planting the plants and embedding the houses in the dirt (so they don't fall over.  You could always put some rocks inside the house to make sure it stays vertical.

And your all done, easy huh? you can even go out in the evening and sprinkle some glitter over it to show the kids in the morning like a real fairy had been in the house.
