In all reallity all the children will be on their parents I-phones and I-pads all night. Free Wi-Fi hookups and I-tunes cards in a Candy bag would make the prefect kids tables. Even the teens would enjoy this

How old is your under 10 crowd? Are we talking about toddlers, or 5 years olds or 8-9 year olds? It’s hard to give you any ideas other than coloring books and crayons, without a more specific age.
For the older kids, is it possible to set up lawn games at the reception? I’m thinking of things like ladder ball or corn hole. Something that can be confined, would be good. I would put a sign that it is for the “under 16” crowd only though, so the adults don’t take it over. If the kids don’t use it you can always remove the sign after the fact. I’ve seen some twelve year olds bored to tears at weddings, and something a bit more active might help.

greyeyedbride: The connect four idea reminds me of a tic tac toe I saw on Pinterest with different color pumpkins (our wedding is in October).
the reception is after it gets dark. We will be having lawn games during cocktail hour, though.
The kids are 5,9,10 and maybe 12 (not sure exactly how old a few of them are). If no one touches anything then it’s no skin off my nose. Just want to offer it.
The kids table isn’t for eating, it’s just for activities. Of course it won’t be mandatory for kids to be there. They can totally dance and hang out with their parents.
