History - Ancient Rome

History - Ancient Rome

I love this series of blog posts, it all started a year or two ago when I took the family to Warwick Castle which was a brilliant day out and I thought I would create a bunch of activities to go along with it. Since then I have also covered Ancient Egypt too so this is our third historical adventure.

St Patricks Day Fun

St Patricks Day Fun

Oddly even though I come from an Irish family and grew up in bars and clubs, I've never really celebrated St Patrick's Day but I thought it would make for something different to add to Wonder Kids and for the first time ever I have some recipes to share with you.  I love cooking and I'm trying to get my daughter excited about cooking so Im hoping that these treats may just be the start.

Dublin to Cork

Dublin to Cork

It's been a fantastic month but also a very busy month, I touch on this a little in my last post The Complete Guide to Fathers Day 2018.  We have not long got back from a visit to Ireland where I was doing some shows but I also took my family with me and I think in total we had about 48hrs in Ireland to have fun. So I thought it would be great to mention a few things that we got to do and some things that you really shouldn't miss.

Marvel - The Cinematic Universe

I did cover Marvel way back in 2015, back when this was just little one page blog over at Wayne-wonder.com but I think with the passing of Stan Lee and now that we have so many more great characters to have fun with it’s time to delve deeper and expand on what we had already.

Roald Dahl - The Witches

Roald Dahl - The Witches

Roald Dahl's The Wicthes is the final topic in our Roald Dahl month.  This story really is one of the scariest kids stories you can find and I think that is why it is so popular, I really believe that kids quite enjoy getting scared as long as it's in a safe environment.  I have utilised this in my shows. I have a puppet called Ferris, who looks like a realistic ferret, he comes out all cute and adorable the kids can pet him but then he leaps out into the audience, this delivers a real shock and scream moment in my otherwise very safe a funny shows.  This rollercoaster of emotion is what makes the best stories.  I have two brilliant ideas for you today, a great witch based game and the recipe for pea soup from the story.

Halloween - 2015

Halloween - 2015

Halloween in the U.K is an odd time of year.  It's certainly a bigger event than it was when I was a kid but it's by no means mainstream and it doesn't even start to compete with Christmas or Easter. One of the major hiccups is the whole trick or treat tradition, which doesn't go down well here.  First the weather is normally freezing cold and wet and then having random strangers knocking on your door is not a very British thing to enjoy, it's really weird for us.
