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.

Alice In Wonderland - Decorations

Alice in Wonderland decorations

This week I'm going to show you some really cool and simple decoration ideas that you can use to really transport everyone to Wonderland.  Let start with the easy ideas and then get a little more complex.

First up, I love this table decoration, using the fake grass as a table runner, maybe you can get a free off cut? worth a try on Facebook. 

Alice in Wonderland Table Deco

Playing card garland, in this picture (below) the ribbon is taped to the back of the cards which seems to me to be a lot of work and not really very secure.  I would rather use a hole punch for each card and thread the ribbon through. The teapot below is so cool, I wish I had done this for my daughters birthday party. Just use an old teapot or get one from a charity shop.  Painting is optional but I do love the vibrant pink.  Use different coloured ribbons and thread them into the teapot spout and out of the teapot.  Make a large knot by tying them all together a few times.  This know then sits inside the teapot and looks like it is pouring out really colourful tea.  Get the teapot to hang by tying it up from the handle. You may need to hot glue the teapot lid shut.

Last but not least I have designed these free printables for you.  You can put these on a signpost in the house or outside, just click on them to print them off, you may want to mount them on card stock.  Check out all the other Alice in Wonderland ideas at the bottom of the post before you go anywhere.  remember we'll be back next week for more Alice in Wonderland ideas.

Ghostbusters - Decoration Inspiration

This week I thought I would show you some quick simple ideas for a Ghostbuster party.  If you combines these with the slime and the crafts that I have shown previously then you are well on your way to making a brilliant Ghostbuster party.  

First off I wanted to show you the above, on Etsy you can buy a download to print at home a whole bunch of Ghostbuster party decorations, before you do that though check out the two top tips below which when combined with my ideas from last week, some Ghostbuster toys, green and black balloons as well as green and black party plates etc, then you're pretty much set already. 

Top Tip 1  

Hazard Tape, this can be find in loads of places but maybe try somewhere like B&Q.  It's not expensive and can be used to cordon off areas or displays.  You can use it to create a path to a certain area or you can even cut the tape in half, creating thin strips and use it on decorations or party favours like the picture below.

Top Tip 2

For a birthday party I recommend using rolls of plastic table cloth, they can be found on Amazon and come in every colour.  You'll need black and green, maybe a little red.  With the green cloth, cut out a slime shape or many of them and use them on the walls, over doors or on the table.
