It would be super nice of you to hire entertainment for the kids but I don’t think anyone would expect you to.  Having a room with coloring books and games would probably be enough.  Maybe some board games for kiddos that are older?  I’d stick with crayons and colored pencils since those won’t stain clothes.  Maybe have stickers  but no scissors if you are having a wide age range of kids.  Don’t want anyone getting hurt.  

We are having 18 kids under 10 at our wedding.  I raided the dollar store and the dollar bins at Target and made each kiddo a gift bag with stickers, bubbles, coloring books and crayons for the girls and Hot Wheels cars, coloring books, crayons, and bubbles for the boys.  I found some cute Hello Kitty, Superman, and Batman small bookbags to put everything in.  We’re going to put them at each of the tables since my family wouldn’t feel comfortable being separated from their kids so a kid room wouldn’t work for us.

Are you having dancing with a dj or band? Most kids actually much prefer that to any kids’ table with crafts, markers, etc that will ruin their dress clothes. If that isn’t available (or even if it is), kids can entertain themselves without help just fine.

Bubbles require adult supervision so that they don’t make messes (spill the soap water all over everything and themselves). Everything else in the favor bags sounds good though.

I love the scavenger hunt! I wouldn’t spend money on hiring entertainment, they’ll be fine!Coloring books will be nice but I’m sure that’s good enough
