Kid Friendly Ideas For Your Wedding

Design a kids' fun table to keep your youngest guests engaged. Here are some suggestions to peak their varied interests.

Instead of linen, cover the table with brown craft paper or butcher paper and let the doodling begin.

 

Tie a group of crayons with ribbon and include a finger puppet so they can interact with other children, stimulate their imaginations and even choreograph a mini puppet play. Mini pretzels with coloring books or paper in a large basket is essential--and stickers. Even better, scented stickers. Consider Mad Libs for the tweens.

Create an I Spy scavenger hunt list of items typically found at a wedding reception.

 

Disposable cameras at the kids table to encourage their inner photographer.

 

Crazy straws. Like a magnet, children are drawn to colorful twisty turvy straws.

 

A crab cake bar is to adults as an ice cream parlor bar is to children. Set up a Candyland worthy dream bar filled with toppings such as gummy worms, Sour Patch Kids, Nerds, chopped fruit, chocolate chips, waffle pieces, whipped cream, caramel and sprinkles just to name a few. Or, imagine a pop up popsicle station where children can choose from a variety of dipping options and candy toppings.

And of course, bubbles are timeless and certainly entertaining for outdoor weddings.
