Putting my kid-goodie bags together and I’m wondering which idea is better (in terms of more fun, and less irritating for me):
1. A “Can you find…?” checklist of things like, the bride and groom, the cake, a guest wearing red shoes…. Once they’re done, they’ll get a special prize. (a glow stick!)
2. I could hide a small box somewhere in the ballroom with a small “gift” for each child in it. And just send the kids on a random treasure hunt. ((could this get as chaotic as I think?)) I kinda want to play though! Sounds like fun….
**We have 6 kids ages 3-8

I would not steer them towards you or your cake! Everytime I see a kid near cake that index finger flies out and they are on a mission to taste. I would be hesitant to have a box they can just take from because what if someone takes more than theirs and another is left out…but I do like the ideas!

I think a treasure hunt is a lot more fun and more engaging, but there is a slight risk of mayhem. Also, the younger children may not be able to read well. Have you included some coloring pages and other activity pages?

The treasure hunt idea is the much better of the two. But I would prefer putting together a bag or box and placing it at their dinner table.

Ah, I am faced with the same issue. My solution…our venue has a playgound, but it’s on the opposite side from the ceremony/reception :). We’ll probably do some coloring pages and a cupcake decorating table (parent supervised of course).

A “can you find” checklist probably wont be much fun for the kids ages 3-5 because kids that age typically can not read or can not read very well so they would have a hard time knowing what to look for. On the other hand, searching for a prize would defenetly get chaotic. Although both things sound like fun, I would go back to the drawing board, unless you want your wedding to turn into a kids bday party.
