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.

Zootopia - Officer Judy & Friends Print outs

Zootopia Free print puts from Wonder Kids

Hello and a very warm welcome to week two of our Zootopia Fun.  I also wanted to welcome all of the new readers of this blog, I know that since I made all the changes back in December last year we now how over one thousand new readers every week.  I still just want to create amazingly helpful content for all of you and I welcome any comments and ideas you have, please do leave them at the bottom of this post.

This week I have handpicked some great print outs that you can use.  I have two great games for you later on but for now check out these cool birthday party invitations.  Flash the sloth is one of my favourite characters and now he can invite your friends to your party. Just click on the pic to print them out.

I love this next idea, although it's not completely Zootopia themed, it is zoo animal themed.  You can use these in a basic way and take them with the kids when you visit the zoo next.  The first child to find all of their animals at the zoo wins.  I prefer however to find some small zoo toys like the ones I have included below. Hide them all over the house, this is great to do once the kids have gone to bed and then set them the challenge to find the animals at some point the following day.  Make sure you play some Jungle themed music or Zootopia themed music whilst playing.  This game is great fun.  Just click on the scavenger hunt to print it off.  Here is the official Zootropolis album.

Last but not least this week I have a Zootopia bingo game you can print out for free!  Now if you have been visiting Wonder Kids for any reasonable amount of time then you'll know that we are not shy of game of bingo, just use the search bar at the top of the page and type in bingo for all of our other versions of bingo. First you'll need to click on the picture opposite to print of your Bingo cards.  Now you just need the playing cards.  So click on the pic below to print off the playing cards, you'll need to print them off and cut out the cards.  To play you will also need some sort of counters, We use jellybeans, small coins or plastic counters if you have them.  The playing cards get mixed up and turn face down.  They are revealed one at a time and if one of the players has a matching card on their bingo board they then get to put a counter on their board.  The first person to fill a row on their bingo boards wins.  That's it for this week but trust me when I say we have the best still to come with more great ideas for you next week.

Pokemon Go - Poke Part Deux

This week I'm going to delve into some really cool Pokemon Party Decorations, then we have two more weeks of pure Pokemon games and crafts for the kids.  When you put all of these blog posts together you'll be ready to make the most awesome Pokemon Party ever! First I have included the link to last weeks blog all about making sure the kids have some cool things to get on with upon arrival, click the button below to take a look at where we started.

I found this picture on my computer recently, it's Selina my Seal puppet, she was trained as a puppy in the circus, she's very cute, very cheeky and has some amazing talents to show off in my upcoming theatre show - Wayne Wonder's Epic Adventure, click here for more info and how to get tickets to come along.

It's taking place in High Wycombe on Saturday 3rd September 2016, at the time of writing this there are still tickets available.  There is something for every member of the family at this show, please come along.

 

 

And were off, with free Party Invitations, these look great and you can just print them off from home.  I would prefer to print them on photo quality paper but whatever you have to hand will work fine.

Now we need some decorations for the party area, lets start with these Poke Balls, they spell out Happy Birthday.

Accessorise with these free printables, great drinks bottles labels that you can stick on to most kids sized bottles and fold your own Pokemon popcorn box, the kids will love these.

Ok so we are now well on our way to having a great looking Pokemon party, I have included some more ideas below that are all pretty self explanatory but I think will work great.

I love the backdrop here, just use some coloured plates either plastic or paper, glued onto a board.  Remember there are three colours you can choose from to match the teams that feature in Pokemon.  Team Valour (Red), Team Mystic (Blue), Team Instinct (Yellow). This would also be great to take pictures in front of too.

Super simple idea with balloons, just draw a very simple Pikachu face and boom instant Pokemon deco.  From experience I can tell you that sharpies make great pens to draw onto balloons.  make sure you avoid any pens with metal tips.

I love these party tables.  They actually look quite easy to achieve, use the rolls of table cloth that you can get in all sorts of colours from places like Amazon.  You can even overlap one colour over the other and use the black duct tape to cover up the overlap.  The centre of the PokeBall tables look like a paper plate taped on using the duct tape.  Quite simple but when you combine this with all the other decorations in this blog then party will just look awesome.
