I would love to get some ideas for setting up a kid’s table for the little guys at my wedding. The ages range from about 6 to about 12. I feel like coloring won’t be to their taste, so I’m at a bit of a loss beyond including legos perhaps.
Any thoughts on games/activities, as well as snacks or anything else to make sure they have fun?
Thanks so much!

I had eight children aged 1-11 at my wedding. The three older boys – 2, 6 and 11 – sat at one table with their parents, the girls aged 3 and 9 at another, and the babies (2 and under with their parents). It was a lunch wedding so didn’t go for too long but the kids aged 3+ had the best time playing with the photo booth and having their photos taken. We also had a naval parade going past on the harbour so there was plenty for them to watch. Why not get them to make some props for the photo booth (with tips on what they’re supposed to look like)?

Draw a city/race track on some craft paper, get each of them some Hot Wheels cars and let them go?
Lego is a great idea for all ages. Maybe small kits or print off some photos of some things they can do?
board games or card games? Uno, checkers, connect 4. You can go to a dollar store and get cheap games.

Mrs.BigBear: +1 to board games and such. The 12 year old won’t appreciate being sat at the kiddie table though.

I have lunch duty with fifth graders every day…and I think that table would be incredibly silly and rowdy!!! Especially if they’re anything like the boys at my school…faces and noises and just…weirdness.
But it’ll be a different environment…so maybe…

Food fights are always fun!

I’m just going to put out there that may be a recipe for a mess. But depending on how formal the wedding is and how long they have to sit still, might be okay. I think Legos are fun for everyone. And perhaps not as messy as something like coloring. But let’s be real, anything/everything is going to turn into a toy gun/sword/something to beat your friend with or make bodily function noises.
