How many children will be attending your wedding? If you are inviting a number of children it’s worth thinking about games or activities to keep them entertained during the wedding reception, especially during the speeches. Activity books, colouring books, quiet games, can be a great idea. Depending on the ages of the children you are inviting perhaps a children’s table at your wedding could be a good idea. Sit all the children on one table , with a few older kids to keep an eye on them. This table could be decorated playfully for the kids. How about a pink and white striped table runner, activity bags for each child with games, books, activities they can play with each other, you could even add mason jars in the centre of the table with crayons in.
We love seeing how our customers use our wedding decorations and details at their weddings. Georgia sent through a photo of the children’s wedding activity basket she made to keep the children entertained at her wedding. We like the idea of putting a mix of children’s games and activities into a basket for them to help themselves.
This week our wedding decoration of the week isn’t a decoration as such, it is something you will need if you are inviting children to your wedding. Our most popular wedding activity book for children is called ‘Something to keep you happy when the grown ups are being really boring at the dinner table’. It does just that, filled with wedding themed puzzles, games and colouring pages it will entertain children quietly while the speeches are taking place.
Lay these wedding activity books at children’s place settings or include them in a bag if you are giving an activity pack to the children.
Have you chosen to invite children to your wedding? If so you may have decided to make them a special children’s wedding activity pack, a little pack waiting for them at their seat will make them feel extra special and should keep them quiet at the table during the speeches. If you are stuck for ideas on what to include in your children’s activity packs we have put together some suggestions below.
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.
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.
