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!

Captain America Civil War - Treats to enjoy with the film

Support The Kids Club

Wow, the summer is coming and it is getting crazy busy for me, which is great but it has meant that this post has been delayed due to me being in London all day Tuesday filming for a YouTube channel and most of the day today out at shows. Im back ow with another great idea to try at home with the kids.  I love getting kids into the kitchen with fun and interesting ideas.  The more practice they get in the kitchen, the better.  This week I have a selection of super easy, tasty snacks that you can make with the kids and enjoy maybe whilst catching up on the other superhero films before you go to see Civil War or take them with you to the cinema.

I have a feeling that this film will change everything in the Marvel Universe and have some serious consequences for when Thano's comes to Earth.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can google it or wait a year or two and see him in the films.  

Captains Fruit and Marshmallow Shield

This just looks so impressive, I hope it entices the little ones to eat more fruit, top tip, compile this shield on the table where it is going to stay, do not try to transport it from the kitchen to a table. Mini marshmallows into the centre, try to get a start shaped cookie cutter to put the mini marshmallows into and then gently remove the cookie cutter.

Blueberries surrounding the centre and then a ring of strawberries to divide the blueberries from the next ring of jumbo marshmallows finished off with another ring of strawberries.  You replace the inner ring of strawberries with raspberries if you wish.  It doesn't matter what size dish you have you just need to scale the centre star so that it fits on the dish you are using.

Thor Hammers

How about these super easy Thor hammers, cut cheese up into cubes and stick in either a large pretzel stick or twiglet, you could even try using a Mikado. It doesn't get much easier than this folks.

Hulk Treats

These look awesome and delicious so I saved them for last.  Follow the recipe for the rice krispie treats below making sure you add in the food colouring.

Ingredients:

  • 50g butter
  • 200g white marshmallows
  • 150g crisped rice cereal
  • Green food colouring
  • black food colouring
  • pack of oreo's

Directions

  1. Melt butter or margarine in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted and well blended. Cook 2 minutes longer, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
  2. Add cereal. Stir until well coated. add food colouring, I found that green food colouring was too bright on its own so you may need to add a drop or two of black colouring to get a darker green colour.
  3. Using buttered spatula or greaseproof paper, press mixture evenly and firmly in buttered 20x30cm tin. Cut into 5x5cm squares when cool
  4. Crush the oreo biscuits and use the crumbs for Hulks hair
