Wonder Kids started in 2014 as a very simple blog, in fact it was embarrassingly simple blog tied to Wayne-Wonder.com. The idea of the blog developed over time and became more detailed. We were surprised by the popularity of it and by 2018 we launched this website dedicated to every thing Wonder Kids.

The idea is simple, create and share great ideas that kids will love to do at home that are easy and inexpensive for parents to organise. With the weather in the U.K mostly grey and miserable we realised that getting creative at home will save us a small fortune in soft play centres and the like whilst also developing our daughter’s creativity, confidence and problem solving skills amongst many other skills too.

Wonder Kids has now grown into a very popular blog featuring hundreds of easy games, crafts and activities you can try at home. We take different theme’s every month and try to fit great ideas around that theme. We have expanded now with a huge free party invitation library, the brilliant Party Boxes that allow you to run an entire kids party simply and affordably, you can find more about Wayne Wonder here too.

Wayne Murphy

The founder of Wonder Kids. “The original idea was to create some fun ideas that I would like to try with my daughter at home and tie them into my children’s Entertainer business, but it soon became much bigger than that”. Wayne is one of the U.K’s leading professional children’s entertainers with ten years of shows under his belt, presenting multi award winning magic shows all over the world as Wayne Wonder. He now uses this experience to create fun all inclusive games and crafts for the blog and you will see the simple genius in action in the Wonder Kids Party Boxes.
