Inside Out - Fun Balls

Inside Out - Fun Balls

This week I have re-worked something I came across last year.  These balls are super easy to make and don't make too much mess but if you want to make them with the kids I would recommend doing them outside.  They are very inexpensive and I am currently using them to play some games in my shows.  I have found them to be very sturdy and I haven't had one break yet. Before we get onto them of course a classic for Wonder Kids is colouring pages so here are a few Inside out colouring pages, just click on them to print them out.

Minions - Despicable Crafts & Cooking

Minions - Despicable Crafts & Cooking

Here is one of my favourite ideas from the original Minions post.  Now with the extra Minion films that have come out we could make either the normal yellow minions or the Purple evil minions. These hats are super easy and all the supplies to make them should be really easy to find either online or at your local hobby store.  I found everything at my local Hobbycraft shop.

Pass the Parcel - A Guide

Pass the Parcel - A Guide

Pass the Parcel is a classic party game for a reason, it works! Kids love it from 3 year olds to 7 or 8 year olds love it!  I even have a couple of versions for older kids too! I personally don’t use pass the parcel at my parties because it takes up too much time for me to use.  However I feel like it is a brilliant game for parents to use at parties because it takes up lots of time, involves everybody whilst offering lots of fun and everybody wins prizes, you cant ask for much more in a game.

Birthday Party Guide - Party Tables

Birthday Party Guide - Party Tables

I've found that the most important thing to get right in a party venue is the table for food.  Not only does this dictate how much space their is for everything else but also whatever the decoration on the table is really sets the mood for everything else and the party in general.  This is one of the reasons why I have a big stage set up for my shows because it draws focus and increases excitement and expectation for my show. A well organised table can do a similar thing.

Birthday Party Guide - Inviting Guests

Birthday Party Guide - Inviting Guests

This is always a great thing to talk to your child about, they are either going to say they only want three friends or a hundred, I don't think there is going to be much middle ground.  Many entertainers impose limits on the number of children you can have so that is something to bear in mind if you are planning on having a professional entertainer at the party.

Hello everybody, it's been a bonkers few weeks here at Wonder Kids, July was my busiest ever for my Wayne Wonder Magic Shows with over 40 bookings in a month!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Party

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Party

Cowabunga Dude’s it’s our last foray into the mutagenic world of ninja turtles. I wonder if anyone reading this remember them being called Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles? Let me know in the comments if you do. In the U.K in the late 80’s early 90’s our censors thought the word “ninja” was a little too aggressive so we had hero’s instead. It’s all changed now of course.
