i say no to the yo yo and slinky… only because kids are kids and at some point those babies are going to be thrown around and someone is going to get hurt or something broken

i like the colouring book… what if you used a paper table cloth for them instead so they can drawn on the table (so to speak)

otherwise, give them a quiz if they are old enough – how many ladies in blue dresses could they count, how many men in red ties, what was the 3rd song played ect with a small prize at the end

you can cover the entire table with butcher paper or some other large sheets of paper, so that kids can draw right on it. Crayons are great. If you get markers, make sure they are washable. The favorite items at my cousins wedding were little containers of playdough and these glow stick things: http://www.orientaltrading.com/ui/browse/processRequest.do?demandPrefix=11&productId=IN-24/1023&mode=Browsing&requestURI=processProductsCatalog&xsaleSku=24/1444&sku=24/1023&cm_sp=Cross%20Sell-_-Product%20Detail-_-Product%20Detail

how about puzzle books, a deck of cards or a travel sized game (i had a mini connect 4 when i was little and it was great)?

I would also reconsider candy canes (or anything else super sticky) and chalk (no one wants chalk on their dress or cocktail attire).

Depending on your venue, you may also want to only consider ColorWonder products (how old are the kids? If they know better than to bring a crayon to a wall then this may not apply).

I agree with the others comments, consider how messy and dangerous/wild those items could become.  I think coloring books/pages with crayons or colored pencils are great, maybe crossword puzzles or soduko puzzles if they’re old enough.  Without knowing the ages, in general I like the ideas of games (mini/travel ones will work- I’ve seen them at Target and Wal-Mart recently) and cards (regualar, Uno, Old Maid- I saw a 2-pack of some of these at Michaels in the dollar bins).  Make up a scavenger hunt they do either alone or in pairs. (You can control how much they have to move around that’s a concern at all.) Stickers are usually popular, but make sure there are guidelines about where it’s ok to put them; you don’t want to be peeling them off the walls of your venue!  Maybe consider supplying items to create a craft?  I’ve seen easy puppet kits and kits for tissue paper flowers; that might keep them busy for a bit.

I’m bringing crayons and coloring books for all 8 kids; they’ll probably be running around, well thay’re my nephews and nieces and one of my dearest friends kids; how could I exclude them?
