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.

Lego Fun - Lego Ninjago

Lego Ninjago Fun from Wonder Kids

Hello and welcome back to Wonder Kids, this week we are looking into Ninjago, with the film that has just recently came out, check out the trailer below.  We are going to look into some great Ninjago, decorations, food, crafts, fancy dress and more. So take your time and take a look through all of this Ninja fun.

Lets kick off with these super cool Ninjago Lanterns. All you need are some cheap Chinese lanterns which I have linked below to save you some time, and these super cool Ninjago eyes which you can print on standard paper or sticker paper.  if you print them on standard paper you can attach them using sellotape or double sided sticky tape. these can also be stuck on to red, green, blue and black balloons to make ninja balloons.

I also wanted to share with you these great Ninjago costumes I found whilst researching, I think they are great and will really take a Ninjago party to the next level. As with any costume accessories help to make it so I have also found some cheap ninja swords too. Ok lets get on with some more cool fun things, first up I have made these great lego ninja go party invites for you to download for free.  We have a huge growing collection of invites all on one web page, take a look with the button below.

Now we are going to need some great Ninjago themed food, these can be used to enjoy with the movie or use them for a birthday party, I have also included below some birthday cake inspiration for you to show professional bakers or have a go at one yourself.  Share your pictures on our Facebook page, we love to see what you are up to.

These first two ideas are super easy, just buy some fortune cookies, dip them Ito some red candy melts and boom they are done.  Next are the Spinjitzu Sticks, these are pretzel sticks again dipped in coloured candy melts and then covered with different toppings, you ca use sprinkles, coconut, chocolate chips or anything else you can find. I love this cake sushi below, it looks really impressive and again is sooo simple, this just uses different types of cake, so use a Swiss roll and slice to make it look like sushi, the same with a chocolate log.  Rice Krispie treats with a sweet fish on top,  I think they are called Swiss fish? but not too sure, they are available in the Uk through specialist suppliers. Genius! Then I have put together a gallery of cake inspiration for you to.

I think these are super cool, and depending on the age of the kids they could have ago at making these themselves.  I think kids under 8yrs will really struggle with these.  First off I found you need to start with two pieces of A4 and you need to measure 10cm tout off.  These makes the A4 more of a square shape which should make all the folds work better. Just follow the pictures, take your time and once you have made one you will be well away. 

This is the end of our fun this week but fear not we still have one more week of fun with Lego yet.  Next week I will show you some brilliant Lego themed games that you can modify and use with all three lego themes we have covered so far.
