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!

Paw Patrol - Games

It's the final week of our Paw Patrol fun, It's also the end of the year, have you tried the Wonder kids seasonal section yet? This is a brand new page dedicated to bringing the most relevant ideas straight to you.  Just click on the button below for loads of Christmas games if you're still in the mood plus some great wintery fun.  There's also some great ideas for snow if we get any.

This week I have not one but two great games, the first is Guess The Pup.  I'll show you how to make your own version of this great game with all the Paw Patrol Characters.  The second game is musical chairs Paw Patrol style.  

Guess the Pup

Which PAW Patrol friend wears a beaded ankle bracelet and hangs out in a purse? Kids can play a guessing game featuring their favorite PAW Patrol pups and friends. Just click on the picture opposite to print and follow the simple steps below.

(Difficulty Level: Easy)

What You’ll Need
Guess Who? Templates (print below!)
Scissors
Glue
Craft knife (optional)

How to Make

Step 1
Print and cut the templates for the game boards out.

Step 2
Glue the character board pieces back to back.

Step 3
Use a craft knife to cut along the dotted lines on the game board templates.

Step 4
Fold the cut out pieces back until they stand

Step 5
Cut along the outside dotted lines that surround the game card pieces.

Step 6
Glue the cut outs back-to-back and begin to cut along the inside dotted lines to create the cards.

How to Play

After the game boards are set up, it’s time to play! Each player picks a mystery card. Taking turns, each player can ask one “yes” or “no” question about his/her opponent’s mystery person in order to eliminate characters on the board. Players can ask questions until they are ready to guess their opponent’s mystery person.

Paw Patrol Musical Statues

This is a great twist on a classic game, play musical chairs inside or out with this free template opposite.  Just print out the paw prints and I would recommend either sticking them onto really strong cardboard or laminating them.  Arrange the paws in a circle making sure you have one paw per person (you may need to print out more than one set of paws).  Now you can play any music you like whilst the kids walk around the circle but I like the idea of using some paw patrol music or maybe who let the dogs out by the Baha Men.  When the music stops every child has to find a paw to stand on.  After the first round you remove a paw, the child that does not get on a paw quick enough now becomes a judge and can remove the next paw.  This carries on until just one paw is left with two players and whoever get the the paw first wins the game.
