I would definitely pack a little favor for each child with coloring books or activity books and crayons. We had at one time planned on setting up a coloring table within the reception room. Fill the table with various coloring books and crayons and story books. We also had 8 children under the age of 7 attending so we knew it would chaos.

I was totally worried about the kids, but they ended up entertaining themselves. No clue what they were doing. 😉

Anyamarion:  we actually cancelled the wedding in favor of eloping BUT we would have done that had we kept our big traditional wedding. we knew we needed a very large room for the kids to run and play and extra tables set up so they could have space away from adults. In the end 8 kids seemed like a crazy amount to us but since they are all FIs close cousins we couldn’t refuse them either.

At the moment I am planning for five kids ages 2-5 to be at my wedding (Four flower girls and a ring bearer) so I plan on having coloring books, lil treats, possibly some dolls for the girls and a truck or tractor to entertain my ring bearer. My wedding also happens to be close to two of the girls and the ring bearers birthdays so I figure I could have lil birthday cakes for the kids to share 🙂

hjfleming2066:  that’s a cute idea! we will miss the youngest flower girl’s birthday because we’ll be on our honeymoon, so maybe we’ll do something like that.

coloring books might not be fun for a 10 year old.

I’m an adult, but I’ve always loved “brain” games or puzzles – mazes, crossword puzzles, etc. I would get that kind of activity book. Also maybe a deck of cards and mini board games would be nice. that may not be feasible at your wedding though if it’s formal.

I went to a wedding last when I was about 18. I was pretty bored since I didn’t know anyone. Would’ve liked some of the games I listed above..
