Make it Simple - Moon Dough

Now this isn't an exact science so just try adding two cups of baking soda into a bucket or tray and add a 1/4 cup of water to it, combine with your hands.  If you want more dough add another 2 cups of baking soda followed by 1/4 cup water, this ratio should be about right.

Music - Hand Drum

Music - Hand Drum

Another week and another chance for us to get our kids into music.  This time I have included a drum.  I find that out of all the instruments kids love, drums are at the top.  This drum is great because I think it will take kids a few attempts to really get the rhythm of it.  When things present a little challenge to kids they like it more once they have overcome it.  It comes from being proud and feeling accomplished.

Lets kick off with your Star Wars name, this is a great thing to keep the kids busy as they arrive, find out there name then let them design a name badge with their name on it. This can just be some printer labels from a stationary shop. That can then be the kids name for the whole party. Have it on a phone/tablet or click on it to print it out.

Make it Simple - Play Dough

Make it Simple - Play Dough

This is super easy to make, you'll never need to buy the store stuff again.  This is a cooked version, there are uncooked versions floating around the net which are great if you want small kids to make it themselves but I think this version is superior with a far better texture and it lasts longer too.

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.

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.
