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.

Unicorn Header.png

Hello and welcome to another great post exploring the magic of Unicorns.  This week I am going to share with you some tasty but naughty treats which are great for birthday parties.  Please do take a look at our previous Unicorn posts too, we still have one more Unicorn article to release which will be focused on making a Unicorn Party!

Please do try out the search bar at the top of every page, I found these super tasty Freak Shakes which would fit well into a Unicorn theme. Just click on the pic for the full details and recipe.

I love super simple ideas that look great, thats really what this blog is all about, it's about creating something easily and affordably that the kids will love and this first idea does just that.

Pink Sprinkle Biscuits

Pink Sprinkle Biscuits

You'll need:

  • Oreo Biscuits
  • Lollipop Sticks
  • Pink Candy Melts
  • Hundreds and Thousands
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cooking Oil

First you'll need to follow the instructions for the candy melts and heat it up, add a little oil to the candy melt to help make it a little thinner and smoother.  Dip the lollipop stick end into the candy melt and insert it into the biscuit, allow to dry for a couple of minutes.  Now take the first biscuit and dip each side into the candy melt.  Straight after this dip it into the hundreds and thousands, leave on greaseproof paper to allow to dry and Harden. This are great as party treats or stick them in little cellophane bags for a great party favour. I ha.  I've included below some quick links to help you save time.  Let us know if you try these and how you got on with them.

Unicorn Marshmallows

This I found on another website but I think they are super cute, I think they are little too complicated to be explained here so just click on the picture to find out how to make these.  Im tempted to try them without the amazing decorations on to, just the marshmallows and edible faces?  Maybe using different coloured marshmallows, pink, white and lilac etc.

Rainbow Cheese Dip

Rainbow Cheese Dip

You'll Need

  • 12 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup plain yogurt, 
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unrefined sugar
  • 1 additional tbsp sugar
  • food coloring blue, pink, green and yellow

How to make

Bring cream cheese to room temperature. Blend all ingredients except the colors until smooth. Although a blender, food processor, or hand blender will yield smoothest results, you can technically stir by hand if you must. Divide among four little dishes and stir a different coloring into each dish. Drop spoonfuls of each color into a serving bowl, alternating colors. Then swirl colors together with a spoon. Leftovers can be covered and refrigerated up to three days.

Unicorn Popcorn

Unicorn Popcorn

This is the last idea this week and I think I have saved the best till last.  How great does this look? I think the kids will love to have this with a movie or a party treat.  Make sure you check out the other Unicorn inspired ideas we have below and explore the site for hundreds of great ideas.  This popcorn is super easy to make , here's what you'll need

  • Popped popcorn, either pop it yourself or buy the ready made stuff, stay away from toffe, caramel or buttered popcorn though as it make affect the colours adhering to the popcorn
  • Pink food spray
  • 1/2 cup Pink candy melts
  • 1/2 cup Blue candy melts
  • Pink and blue sprinkles
  • 1-2 teaspoons coconut oil

How to make

Lay the popped popcorn on two cookie sheets and spray lightly with the pink food spray. toss over and coat the other side. Let dry as you prep the candy melts.

Place the candy melts each in a small microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 25 seconds, stir, and reheat as needed. Add in 1/2 teaspoon or more of coconut oil to make the candy melts more loose and easily drizzled.

Drizzle half of the candy melts over the popcorn, add sprinkles, let dry. Reheat the candy melts and toss the popcorn to coat the other side with the second drizzle.
