Are they your kids from another relationship, his or yours together? As a kid I have done the sand ceremony and candle, which was fairly easy for all ages. They have been over done. You could do handprints on a canvas, have them say “we do,too”, or if they are not your kids together have the one coming into to your family give them a gift or piece of jewerly to signify them coming together as a family. 

It is so lovely you are including them There have been to many posts where the focus is just on the couple coming together and leaving the kids out or barely acknowledging them although they are a main part of the unit becoming a family.

mjsoiree:  I was about to say the same thing as theatrejulia. I love the tree idea so if you don’t want to do the handprint you can do the fingerprint and then at the end of the ceremony or beginning of reception you can have the guests put their fingerprints too. Later on you can hang it in your home. I myself am doing the sand with my son but am petrified that he will make a mess as well. I could only imagine your worries with more than 1 child. Good Luck to you!

Both my children are walking me down the aisle, his youngest son is the ring bearer and his older two (twins that are 11) are walking down the aisle with him. We are all doing a family sand ceremony together. It was also very important to us to include our kids in the ceremony.

I love the idea of doing something more unique than the sand though. I wasn’t able to come up with anything else to incorporate our five children.
