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.

Tinkerbell and Fairies Re-Mixed - Fairy Crafts

Fairy crafts

I've been loving this update to my Fairies post so far.  What I have in this update are two great crafts that are super easy and would work brilliantly at birthday parties.

Dragon Fly's

These are so easy and really cute make using mainly items you can find in the woods.  Did you know that fairy's ride dragon fly's for fun?

What you'll need

  • Twigs, different length's and sizes
  • Hot glue gun
  • Acrylic paint
  • Tree seed (maple/sycamore)

I love this idea, just so simple and beautiful.  First you'll need to go for a trek in the woods and find some twigs and tree seeds.  I believe that maple and Sycamore seeds are very similar looking seeds so you can get a mixture of these two types. Just line everything up where you want it and hot glue it in place. Once it's dried and cooled down the kids can paint them, they look brilliant as part of a fairy house or just placed around the garden.

If you put all of our Fairy ideas together you could have an amazing Fairy party, I found these in my research for these blog posts and although I couldn't fit them in anywhere, I really like them and wanted to share.  Its a butterfly garland/banner.  These would look great for a garden party.

Blossom Bracelets Wonder Kids

Blossom Bracelets

What a good make to then take home after a party? these are super simple and look amazing.  Give them a go, your little ones will love this.

What you need

  • Duct tape
  • flowers
  • scissors

First you need to take a trek into the wilderness and pick some lovely flowers, any flowers you like will work but here we have dandelions, wild violets and blossoms. Next measure the bracelet by wrapping the duct tape around an arm STICKY SIDE UP.  Cut it to size and you have a sticky bracelet ready to be decorated.  Now the kids can stick flowers on however they like, not only do they look brilliant but they smell great too, it's just a shame that they don't last forever.

That's it for this update, I think these two crafts are beyond awesome and so so simple you have to give them a go.  Check out more Fairy updates by using the search bar at the top of the page.

Dennis The Menace - Chaos

Dennis the menace from Wonder Kids

April is here and we are feeling very mischievous here at Wonder Kids.  My daughter has just turned 7 so I think the time has come for April fools day to take hold in our household.  Every week this month we are going to show you some great tricks and pranks worthy of Dennis and Gnasher that you can use all year round but especially good on April fools Day.

Sneezing gag with water Wonder Kids

Sneeze Gag

Sneezing is gross! lets just agree on that, germs come flying out at 100mph.  Thats why this simple gag works so well.  You need a small cup of water, dip your fingers in walk up behind someone.  make a loud sneezing noise and flick the water onto the back of their head.  As you do this make a sneezing motion with you hand and just walk away.  Your victim will feel gross but its just water! 


Bug in Lampshade gag Wonder Kids

Bug in Light

I love this, it takes a little prep, I prefer to do it during the day, maybe whilst your mum is out? Just leave it in the lampshade and when she turns the light on in the evening you'll hear her scream! print off the template and cut out the shape, you can stick these all around the house, like on the toilet roll, in a kitchen cupboard.  On the otherside of blinds works well too.  Your are only limited by your imagination.


Toilet face Gag from Wonder Kids

Toilet face

This is a great one for first thing in the morning, so you'll need to do the secret work overnight.  First you'll need to take a picture of your face and print it out at the best quality you can. It will need to be at least A4 in size.  This picture gets stuck on the toilet underneath the seat.  make sure you close the lid so that the next person to lift the lid gets a fright.


Come back next week for more great gags and tricks, you have not seen anything yet! Before you go make sure you sign up to our newsletter over to the right of the page and check out some of our previous blog updates below.  See you next week.
