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.

Pokemon Go - Poke Party

Pokemon Go has been nothing short of a phenomenon! So I thought I would have a go at showing you some great ideas for a Pokemon Party.  Obviously the kids could just play Pokemon Go at a Pokemon Party but I wanted to go a little further than that.  Every week this month I will bring a bunch of ideas so that you can build the best Pokemon Party ever.

My Epic Adventure Theatre Show is coming up in a matter of days now.  Its going to be amazing, I'm really looking forward to it.  The show is a non stop 60mins of crazy stunts, puppets and illusions.  Something for the whole family. There are still tickets available at the time of writing this, please do come along.

Arrival

This week I am going to focus on keeping the kids busy whilst they are arriving.  The kids never all arrive at the same time, you have some early birds, peoplel bang on time and of course the odd late comer too.  So set up a few simple ideas to keep everybody busy whilst you are waiting for everyone to come.  It's been a while but colouring pages are perfect for this task.  There was a time where I was giving colouring pages in every blog post but it's been a while since I last did some colouring pages so here you go, just set up a table with some pens/pencils etc and leave the kids to it. Just click on the pictures you want to print out.

How about draw your own Pokemon Cards? let their creativity fly with this cool template, it's completely free just click on the picture to print out as many as you like.  The kids can design their own pocket monster and give it it's own attributes too. 

One last idea, remember to come back next week for loads more great ideas, these are just ideas to do for the kids as they arrive, if you come up with any then please either comment below or join the Wonder Kids Facebook group by clicking the image below.

Become your own Pokemon! take a picture of each child as they arrive and then load them up to this website and print off their very own Pokemon Card, obviously one person on their own can not do all of this but if you have a helper or two then this idea will be a sure fire hit.  You can include a print out of their custom Pokemon cards in the party bags at the end of the party.

That's it for the first week but believe me I have some great ideas coming up this month and this is just the start.  I'd love to know what you thought of these ideas and if you have any ideas of your own.
