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.

Dennis the Menace - Gnasher

Dennis the Menace pranks from wonder Kids

Hello and welcome to another week at Wonder Kids filled with more great pranks and tricks.  I hope you have been enjoying a great easter break with the kids, we have been super lucky with the weather.  This week we have three super simple ideas that are just brilliant but make sure you check last weeks pranks by clicking the button below and come back next week for even more great gags. 

Check out the video below to see me playing some pranks on Captain Calamity from my most recent visit there.

Fly gag from Wonder Kids

Eating A Fly

Ok this is gross but so effective.  DO NOT EAT REAL FLY'S! Place a raisin inside a tissue and mime catching a fly near a window with the tissue.  Show your friend that your playing the prank on the tissue, open it up until they can just see the tip of the raisin and quickly pinch the raisin and eat it.  They will believe that you have just eaten a fly and will freak out.


Car sign prank from Wonder Kids

Car Prank

I love this, at night stick a sign like this on the back of your car.  The next morning during the school run should be interesting and your victim won't have a clue about whats going on.


Blue water prank from Wonder Kids

Coloured Water Prank

This one will really get someone.  You can pick and food colouring you like.  For halloween you could try a red food colouring.  I would go for either blue or green though.  There are a few ways to try this.  You need a cotton bud dipped in the food colouring you are using and swap the tap with the food colouring, allow it to dry and apply another coat.  This means you can not use the tap before your victim does.  I find that most modern taps have cap on the end that unscrews, this allows you to apply more food colouring inside the faucet which give a much better colour.


Thats it this week, come back next week for more great ideas you can use to prank your friends and family.  Let us know how you get on in the comments below.

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.
