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.

Frozen Fun

This months activity pack is all about Frozen Fun! I know Frozen has just been huge, I've never seen a film have such a huge reaction before.  I have a feeling that it's going to get really big again around christmas too because by then it will be showing on TV, we may have some snow and the kids will be getting their Elsa/Anna dresses or the DVD itself for pressies. So here are some games you can use on rainy days or wait for christmas and try them when you're with the extended family.

Frozen Tag

So this is like the old game stuck in the mud only way more crazy and messy, just the way I like things!  When you get tagged you have to freeze until someone can come and un-freeze you.  I play it like this - Pick someone to be Elsa, Elsa gets the can of silly string. Pick another person to be Anna/Kristoff, this person will un freeze the frozen stuck people. If the Silly String gets you, you're frozen until Anna/Kristoff tags you.  If "Elsa" manages to freeze everybody then game over (it's almost impossible to freeze everybody) Make sure you switch the roles around, so lots of people get a turn at being Elsa and/or Anna/Kristoff. Im going to try this at my shows soon. Click the pic below for an Amazon link to buy silly string.

Disclaimer - this is a messy game! although I have never had a problem with silly string indoors I take no responsibility for any stains, play it out in the garden on a snowy day for the best effect.

Frozen Treasure Hunt

I always like to finish these activity packs with something really good, so here it is a custom made Frozen treasure hunt.  What you'll need first is something to give as a prize.  We use my daughters favourite ice lollies hidden in the freezer.  So all the clues led her round the house and back to our freezer.  I tried this with my 4yr old daughter and 11yr old sister, it went down a storm.

You will need some knowledge of the song lyrics from the film but Im guessing most of you know them by now. Start them with one clue which takes them from one place and then another and then another until they find the prize. Great fun and works brilliantly indoors!

As always I would love to hear how you got on with any of these ideas.  I would love to see some crazy silly string pictures too! The best posts on my Facebook page wins Wayne Wonder Prizes! Click the Facebook button below.
