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.

Minions Re-Mixed - Minion birthday Party

Minions are out of the box

To round off the new Minions Re-Mixed posts I have included here some great simple Birthday Party additions to really take a party to a new level.  First check out this table deco, minions are a great theme for birthday parties because almost everything is available in both yellow and blue and the whole party is easy to bring together under a great bright theme.

Minion Party Table Wonder Kids

I love these super simple cups, just yellow cups which should be easy to find, black paper/card and some googley eyes which you should be able to find at a local craft shop or I have included a link below to save time.

This game is all sorts of fun but I think it's definitely an outdoors game.  The idea is that the kids save the minions from turning into evil purple minions.  You'll need to print out the picture supplied below and laminate it.  One picture for each child.  Then you'll need some washable finger paint and really water it down.  Again I have included a link for this to save you time.  Stick the pictures on a fence as shown and apply a little of the watered down paint to each Minion, it should start to drip down the picture.  This kids need to race to pick up their water guns and spray the pictures with water until the Minion is entirely clean and no longer turning purple.  

Couple of tips with this game - It's almost impossible to get all the purple paint off the picture so you may want to set this as a challenge against the clock.  Also make sure the kids have really good water guns so that they can step  quite far back from the fence and it should make the game easier for them.

Minons Re-Mixed - Take on the Minions

Hello and welcome to the first ever Wonder Kids Re-Mixed post.  One of my first ever blog posts covered the Minions back in 2014.  I think the time is right to re-mix this post and add loads of new ideas to it too.

Minion Pins Mions Remixed

Take on the Minions

I have here a couple of brilliant games using these super easy to make Minion Pins. You'll need as many 2ltr soda bottles as you would like to use.  You'll also need everything below:-

  • Yellow Spray Paint
  • Blue Spay Paint
  • Glue
  • Free Goggle print out (below)
  • Marker Pen

Just print out the goggles below and stick them onto the bottles.

Now you’re all set for fun! These can be use a bowling pins just use a regular small ball, maybe a tennis ball. But my favourite thing to do with these are Nerf guns, lots of boys have at least one nerf gun. Here’s the idea, have the kids leave the room whilst you set up minions all over the place. The kids then come in and try to hit all the targets. I promise you the kids will not get bored of this for a very long time and will soon be setting the pins up themselves to shoot down. This is just the first in anew series of posts about the minions, come back soon for more.
