There will be kids at my reception, so I’m having a “kid’s corner”.
So far, my ideas are:
- coloring pages
- connect-the-dots pages
- word games (word search, crossword)
Those seem a little repetative, all just working on paper. Should I add a couple board games?
Any ideas how to make it more fun for the kids? I don’t have kids and I was the baby of the family so I haven’t been around kids much, I have no idea what they like.
I have all age-ranges to accommodate for.

We are also having a ton of kiddies and I was planning to do something similar. I would add a “running” game such as croquet or badminton (with enough material for 6 kids or so to play together) since it is pretty unlikely they are going to stand still the whole reception. A Wii (if you can borrow one) would probably be well received too.

We were considering doing that too, and I had been debating on bringing our wii as well, I have 4 controllers and a rockband set I was thinking of using but I also don’t wanna worry about kids fighting over the controllers and games and all that.

We are definitely. We have a grassy area, so we’ll be having hula hoops and bubbles for the kiddos. Still working on some other ideas!

We have a room at the place we are getting married that kids can go to and play Wii or ping pong, color, etc. We are also having 2 childcare people come to help out. At the table we have an “I Spy” wedding game and I disposible camera for the kids to use. And since all the kids are staying for the weekend, I made them all welcome bags with toys, and stickers, activity books, etc.

We’re getting married at a state park, and there’s a playground within a stone’s throw of our covered picnic area. Aside from that, the kids are getting their own picnic blankets and Chick-fil-A catered meal (which I think some of us may be nipping from), 2 babysitters, and a bunch of bubbles and coloring books.

Were doing it for the kids. I will be doing lots of coloring books. we bought glittery stick on shapes and hats for the kids to decorate. No glue or cutting!! I also have a checker game thats oversized for the kids!

We included glow sticks (the kind you can clip together) and sand art supplies in addition to the drawing/coloring supplies. I also found some paper placemats that had word games and puzzles on the back of them. Actual puzzles are another idea.

We are doing a kids corner as well. We are having a pinata, badmitton, and coloring books. We are also hiring someone from my mother’s church youth group to babysit so that the parents can enjoy the wedding and not worry about having to watch over their kiddos.

We’re going to have some games outside in this grassy area for them. I also plan on covering their table with butcher paper and putting crayons on their table so they can draw during dinner.

I am planning on having a kids room that is adjacent to the reception room. I had a few ideas, like coloring books, a few pack n plays for napping, and books. But I didn’t even think of the outdoor things, and I love the idea of hula hoops and bubbles. Thanks everyone!

We are having a kids table and instead of having a centerpiece like the other tables there is going to be a fun interactive on and then their place settings are going to have “survival” kits. something like this:
