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.

More Aprils fools pranks from Wonder Kids

Welcome to our final instalment of Aprils fools gags.  I hope you have had a good laugh trying these out, lets crack on with the final three gags.  make sure you come back next week for a brand new theme, we are going back to games, crafts and activities you can try from home.

Frozen Milk Gag from Wonder Kids

Frozen Milk

combine this with the crazy wake gag from last week and it would be a great way to start April fools day. Make a small bowl of your kids favourite cereal at night and put it in the freezer to freeze over night.  In the morning add a splash or two of normal milk on top so the it looks like a fresh bowl of cereal and then sit back and watch the reaction as they tuck in.


Doughnut Seeds

This is a great idea for the kids packed lunch. Click here for the free printable seed pack.  Fill it with Cherios and the kids will get a great reaction at school.

Doughnut Seeds prank from Wonder Kids

Chocolate Grapes

This is a two for one and more great opportunities to mess with the kids lunch.  I recently tried this prank as well as some others on a good friend Captain Calamity, check out the video below to see how they went down.

Broccoli lollipops, steam some florets of broccolis to soften them a little you won't need to steam them for long.  get your self some lollipop sticks, I have included a link opposite to save you time.  just insert the stick into the broccoli and wrap with a coloured napkin and leave it as a treat in their lunch box.

Fake mini eggs, this could also work for the kids lunch box but I prefer to take the time to make loads of these up, carefully unwrap the chocolate and wrap a grape in the foil instead.  Place them all n a bowl and leave the bowl somewhere the kids will spot it.  On the top in the kitchen or maybe the desk in their bedroom.  I've also tried this one on my daughter and it was hilarious.

That's it for this week and for the gags at the moment, but check out some of our older posts below and make sure you come back next week for a brand new theme.

Bieber-ize the kids room

Now this works if your kid hates Bieber? if not swap it for another character/personality. Imagine posting pictures of Princess Elsa all over a boys room or Luke Skywalker all over little Imogen's room for when they get back from school.

Crazy Wake Up Prank from Wonder kids

Crazy Wake Up

Here is one for the brave.  When the kids wake up in the morning, you need to be already up and ready dressed as crazy as you can! Hold on it gets worse, then do the school run in the same crazy outfit.  Try and get some friends to do it too and the kids will see how amazing this prank is when they get to school.  I did say this one is for the brave, if you have what it takes to pull this one off I would love to see some pictures on my Facebook Page which is at the top of the page just to the right.


Thats it for this week, but make sure you come back next week for even more great pranks that would make Dennis the Menace proud.  Let us know if you tried any of our pranks so far and how they went.

Dennis The Menace - Chaos

Dennis the menace from Wonder Kids

April is here and we are feeling very mischievous here at Wonder Kids.  My daughter has just turned 7 so I think the time has come for April fools day to take hold in our household.  Every week this month we are going to show you some great tricks and pranks worthy of Dennis and Gnasher that you can use all year round but especially good on April fools Day.

Sneezing gag with water Wonder Kids

Sneeze Gag

Sneezing is gross! lets just agree on that, germs come flying out at 100mph.  Thats why this simple gag works so well.  You need a small cup of water, dip your fingers in walk up behind someone.  make a loud sneezing noise and flick the water onto the back of their head.  As you do this make a sneezing motion with you hand and just walk away.  Your victim will feel gross but its just water! 


Bug in Lampshade gag Wonder Kids

Bug in Light

I love this, it takes a little prep, I prefer to do it during the day, maybe whilst your mum is out? Just leave it in the lampshade and when she turns the light on in the evening you'll hear her scream! print off the template and cut out the shape, you can stick these all around the house, like on the toilet roll, in a kitchen cupboard.  On the otherside of blinds works well too.  Your are only limited by your imagination.


Toilet face Gag from Wonder Kids

Toilet face

This is a great one for first thing in the morning, so you'll need to do the secret work overnight.  First you'll need to take a picture of your face and print it out at the best quality you can. It will need to be at least A4 in size.  This picture gets stuck on the toilet underneath the seat.  make sure you close the lid so that the next person to lift the lid gets a fright.


Come back next week for more great gags and tricks, you have not seen anything yet! Before you go make sure you sign up to our newsletter over to the right of the page and check out some of our previous blog updates below.  See you next week.
