Children’s wedding activity packs – activity books
A must have for children’s wedding activity packs is some sort of activity book, depending on their age a sticker book, puzzle book or colouring book would be perfect. We have a couple of activity books designed for children at weddings with a range of activities from word searches to puzzles and colouring pages. Don’t forget to include some crayons with the books, stay away from felt tips for the sake of the tablecloths.

Children’s wedding activity packs – keepsake books
Keepsake books for children are a lovely idea for your young bridesmaids and pageboys, being such a special part of your day giving them a book to remember it by is a fab idea and keeps them entertained. Give them a disposable camera and ask them to take photos of various things throughout the wedding, for an example ‘a photo of me in my bridesmaid dress’, ‘a photo of the bride and groom’, ‘a photo of a wedding cake’. After the wedding they can stick the photos in the book making a lovely keepsake.
