How to keep children entertained...
Whether you have a handful or 20 plus children attending your wedding, a key thing on your to-do list is how to keep them entertained! Here’s a bundle of ideas to keep them entertained...
Children’s goodie bags are at the top of the list! They can contain a variety of activities which can even be personalised (and don’t cost a lot of money either!) You can buy pre-made goodie bags for children or create these yourselves to include colouring pages, puzzles, sweets and books. Place these bags on their chairs for the wedding breakfast, then sit back and enjoy the peace!
A Kids Zone – just be sure to not let the Groomsmen too close! If you have enough space at your venue for a separate children’s area, hire some TV’s and play movies or TV shows (a PlayStation or XBOX are always a winner for older children or teenagers too). For the younger ones, a quiet area with beanbags, throws and story books is perfect for those wanting to escape and snuggle down after a long day.
Every kid loves games (even the big kids!) If you have space at your venue to place some giant games (such as Jenga, Chess, 5 in-a-row) these are a great way to amuse all ages and can even be placed indoors if it rains.
Picture Perfect – Place disposable cameras on the tables along with a Wedding Photograph Challenge – this could include taking photographs of specific parts of the day – i.e. the couple kissing, cutting of the cake, confetti shot, Best Mans speech. This is also a great way to get natural & informal photographs!
If all else fails, hire a creche service to look after the children. If your venue has a suitable separate room, it may be worth hiring this space and letting the professionals entertain the little ones all day!
