For those of you bees that are having little activity bags for your guests that are children, what are you putting in the bags? And what kind of bags are you putting them into, even? Are you having boy/girl bags or just unisex bags?

I’m thinking about the same things for our wedding. Michael’s has a bunch of dollar bins with gender-neutral and specific gender kid stuff, so I bought some glow bracelets and temporary tattoos so far. I will probably get some coloring books and crayons and a few other goodies to keep them entertained. Once I know how many boys and girls I’ll have attending, I’ll probably get boy and girl specific bags/containers.

I bought some little totes at dollartree in one of the wedding colors. I bought glow in the dark bracelets/necklaces, the small sized boxes of crayons (party favor ones, that came 4 or 6/$1.00, I also bought small unlined pads of paper 3×5″ size, and a small plastic slinky. They all fit in the totes. Sticker pages sound good too! 🙂

I’m thinking if my fiance is going to let me do these activity bags (he’s all about not having anything that’s unnecessary…he shot down my ‘tears of joy’ diy project lol) I’ll probbaly be getting all of the gear for the bags from the dollar store.

Oriental Trading has some cute boxes specifically for children at a wedding. They also have small wedding coloring books and sm. box of crayons. I also bought some glow in the dark bracelets, tattoos, stickers and some small pads of paper (all from Oriental). Very inexpensive.

Most our kids stuff came from Dollar Tree, Walmart (in the party section they have little toys that come 4, 6, 8, or 12 to a package for anywhere from $1-4), and Party City (lots of little toys for 10-50 cents each). Ours are pretty gender-neutral – I think the only “girly” thing we got were some little plastic gem rings. We got our bags at Michaels – in their summer stuff they had some cloth bags 3/$1. They’re not huge (maybe 7x7in?) but they’ll hold a few little toys. I forget what colors they came in – we bought all orange.
We also picked up a few things to have a kids activity area – foam sheets and stickers (like this – http://shop.hobbylobby.com/crafts/craft-foam/shapes/), make your own mug kits ($1 each at Michaels), and plain paper. The kids will have their own box of crayons in their bag, but we’ll probably put some on the table, too.
