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.

Adult super hero drinks, I have included Joker Juice in this series of posts for the kids but these are strictly for grown ups only! Try each one and let me know which was your favourite on our Facebook Page.

The Bruce Wayne Drink Wonder Kids

Serves 1

4½ oz. black iced coffee
2 oz bourbon

¼–½ oz. maple syrup (depending how sweet you like it)

Brew a pot of coffee and let chill until cold, or dilute cold-brew coffee concentrate with an equal amount of cold water. Measure all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake thoroughly, until chilled and foamy. Strain into glass over ice.

The Boy Wonder Drink Wonder Kids

Serves 1

3 oz. orange juice
2 oz. sparkling wine
1 oz. silver tequila
Splash grenadine or maraschino cherry juice

Pour tequila, juice, and sparkling wine into a champagne flute and stir. Tilt glass slightly and slowly pour grenadine down the side so that it settles at the bottom. Garnish with a lime slice.

The Joker Drink Wonder Kids

Serves 1

3 oz. grape Jolly Rancher-infused vodka (see below) 

¼ oz. lime juice

Seltzer

To make the infused vodka: Unwrap 10–12 purple Jolly Ranchers and put them in a sealable jar or bottle. Add 1½ cups of vodka, seal, shake, and let sit overnight or until candy fully dissolves when you shake the bottle. Chill until ready to use.

Add 3 oz. infused vodka and lime juice to a Collins glass with ice, stir, and fill with seltzer. Garnish with lime slice.

Poison Ivy Drink Wonder Kids

Serves 1

2 oz. gin
1 oz. St. Germain
¾ oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice
3 sprigs fresh basil
2 sprigs fresh mint

Muddle all ingredients well in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, shake vigorously for at least 20 seconds (this will help break up the herbs and give the drink its color and flavor), and strain into a coupe glass.

Mr Freeze Drink Wonder Kids

6 oz. pineapple juice

1½ oz. white rum

1½ oz. blue Curaçao

3–4 blue raspberry Jolly Rancher candies (optional)

The night before making: Divide pineapple juice between sections of an ice cube tray and freeze until solid. 

Crush Jolly Rancher candies with a mortar and pestle, or seal in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin or another heavy kitchen tool. Empty “crystals” onto a small plate. Rub the rim of a margarita or hurricane glass with a lime slice and roll it in the candy crystals to coat, then chill glass in fridge or freezer while you blend the cocktail. 

Combine frozen pineapple juice cubes, rum, and blue Curaçao in a blender, pulse to break up the frxjhsdjhgvcjhsvjhcvskhcsvkhbkice, and blend until smooth. Pour into glass. Serve with a straw (and maybe a spoon).

3 cups brewed black tea, chilled
