a movie corner should keep them entertained. 

I put a movie on when we have indoor recess (I’m a teacher) and they are SO QUIET. They focus way more on the TV than when I’m teaching! They also LOVE dancing to Just Dance –you can find videos on youtube. 

maybe some board games–although at that age, board games could lead to ”so and so cheated!!!”

As far as staying quiet during speeches–maybe a coloring book? It’s also the parents’ job to make sure their kid is behaving.

I was very worried about this too, but everything worked out great.  We had an age range of 2 years old up to young teens.  We did speeches during dinner so most of the kids were kept busy because they were still eating.  We also had given each kid a beachball and the few kids that didn’t want to sit through speeches went right outside to the patio to play with them and thier parents just watched them through the windows.  I did also have an activity table that included story books, puzzles, coloring pages, and pony beads and string to make necklaces.  Although it did seem like dancing and beachballs was enough to keep all the kids happy.
