@liliwo2016:  I would hope that the parents figure out a way to entertain their kids since they decided to bring them along.  I never understand why brides worry about offering activities for the kids.  When I was 6+ I was expected to behave in public and if not, then I didn’t get to go anywhere with my parents.  I would always take a book with me when my parents allowed me to go out to dinner or to a fancy party with them so that if I got bored, I had something to do.

If you feel you must offer something, only the 5 and 7 year old are likely to appreciate an activities bag.  The 1 year is too young (and should be within in contact of his/her mother or father all night anyway) and the 9 & 10 year olds are too old (plus they are old enough to behave anyway.)

We had 7 kids at our wedding, ranging from 1-11, they all entertained themselves just fine and were well behaved without any kits.  We also had a photobooth for all of the guests and they loved that!  🙂

We are having kids at our wedding in a similar age range. I trust their parents will be responsible for them, and I know that they are decently behaved kids (fiancé’s cousins). We also have the option to set up a movie room in an extra space at the venue, we just need to bring DVDs. Do you have the ability to do something like that?

@liliwo2016:  It was awesome!  They wore some of the props at the photobooth on the dancefloor (as did some of the adults).  My 1 yr old niece was the a dancing fool that night.  🙂
