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.

Inside Out - Games

Support the Kids Club

This post is early this month, normally I post every Tuesday lunchtime but I'm going with the family to Legoland for the day tomorrow and I had the day off today as it's a bank holiday in the U.K so I had time to put this post together.  This month I have so many awesome Inside Out inspired ideas to share with you.  Lets start with week 1, I have two great free games for you.  Before we crack on please do take a second to check out my Facebook Page, over a thousand parents are already joining in.  You'll also find out about loads of public events I attend throughout the year.  It's a free service so go and make the most of it.

Inside Out Bingo

I have quite a collection of bingo games in the Kids Club now, most of them are designed to play along with whilst watching the related film.  This is more of a traditional bingo game. Inside Out Bingo includes all of your favorite characters from the Inside Out movie!! In the bingo set, there are eight bingo cards in different orders, so it's easy to print and use for your parties. It's fun for every age to play, and the calling cards include the names of the characters in case you don't know who they are. Just click on the image opposite to download the FREE bingo game printable. Once you have this follow on the game instructions below and have fun.


Game Instructions

1. Pick some kind of object to mark your squares or use a dry erase marker.

2. Give each player a Bingo card and markers (or put your own together with the blank set). Have each player put a marker over the free space.

3. Have one person choose a calling card and say it out loud. Each player will cover that item on their card with a marker. Once a player has 5 squares covered in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally), they call out "BINGO!" and win the game!

Inside Out Free Board game

This is just awesome, I've played this with my daughter and it costs you next to nothing.  To play this emotions game, you’ll download my FREE Printable, print it off, then cut out the cards. I printed off 3 sets of cards. For the playing pieces, I purchased the the Mini Inside Out Figures at Toys “R” Us. You can use anything as counters to get around the board though.  The first time we played it we used some spare Loom Bands (I'm sure most of us have some of those still hanging around, check out my Loom Bands pack here).

You’ll move the pieces as the cards tell you to. Some tell you to move forward and some tell you to move back.When you land on a “memory” spot (the spots on the game board with a circle on them), you have to tell a memory of when you had that emotion. So, if you land on green, you would tell of a time you were Disgusted. Each color matches the emotions of a character from Inside Out. I’ve included some instructions in the free printable for reference. Just click on the image above to download and print your FREE board game.
