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.

Inside Out - Character Masks

Support the kids Club

Another week has flown by and I hope everyone is back to their normal routines now.  Remember you can still win a FREE one hour party extravaganza for your school, organisation or even a birthday party by taking part in the colouring competition here.

This week I have great Inside out masks for your kids to create and play with.  These are really super easy to do, as long as you get the colour and shape of the head right then the characters will look good.

So here is what you'll need to make these awesome masks -

  • Pack of paper plates (get at least 15 plates)
  • Paint for each character, peach, blue, green, red & purple
  • PVA glue
  • pipe cleaners
  • colouring pens
  • Lollipop sticks (available from hobby craft)
  • Craft paper (in different colours for hair or clothes etc)

Paint 5 paper plates, one in the color of each character. We painted peach for Joy, blue for Sadness, green for Disgust, purple for Fear & red for Anger. We let them dry.

I cut white ovals out of construction paper to make the eyes. I drew in eyeballs with magic markers & then glued the eyes into place.

I used another paper plate as a template & cut the hair out of construction paper. I drew in eyebrows & then formed Sadness’ glasses out of pipe cleaners & glued them into place.

We finished off our mask by drawing in the nose & mouth & I used a lighter shade of blue paint to paint in the turtle neck of her sweater. I used blue magic marker to add the sweater’s details. I added two craft sticks to the back for the mask’s handle.
