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 Memory Game Super Edition

Minions are out of the box

This is a great example of what the Re-Mixed blog posts are all about.  I originally covered Minions back in 2014 and I included a memory game on that but this is a much better version and its been brought bang up to date with the super hero theming for the Marvel dominated world we live in at the moment.  

Minion Memory Game from Wonder Kids

This is basically the old game of Pairs.  You'll need to print out two sets of the cards below.  Just click on them for the printable PDF's. You can just print out the card on paper/card stock or what I did was use the Yellow Minion print as a backing for the cards.  To doing this I printed two of everything on A4 paper stock.  then stuck an A4 card sheet to the A4 Yellow backing.  Now I left that to dry so whilst it's drying why not try this with the kids.  

Once it dried I cut out each card and now it has a great yellow backing on it. Play this game on a table or on the floor.  Mix all the cards up making sure they are FACE DOWN.  Now you take it in trans to turn over only two cards, if they match you keep them, if they are different you turn them back over.  If you find a matching pair you get another go.  The person with the most pairs when all the cards are gone is the winner.

Supplies needed for this great easy game you can have fun at home with- 

  • A4 paper or card stock
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Thats it, it doesn't get much easier.
