Are you inviting children to your wedding? Even if your not generally inviting children perhaps you have a few young ones attending as they are close family members. Young children can be fab at weddings, especially if you are having young flower girls and page boys walk down the aisle, there is nothing cuter. But have you thought about ways to entertain children throughout the wedding breakfast and speeches?
Giving each child their own activity pack is a lovely idea. Have a gift bag waiting for them at their seat filled with lots of little games and colouring activities to keep them happy (and quiet) during the meal. Below are some of our best sellers to help you with your childrens wedding activity pack ideas.
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.
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.

This week our wedding decoration of the week isn’t a wedding decoration as such. Our children’s games are great if you are inviting children to your wedding. Children are great at weddings, but when it comes to sitting quietly at the table they need something to keep them entertained. We think it’s a great idea to give each child an activity pack.
