I’m having kids around the same age at our wedding. I’m planning on giving them some coloring pages and crayons. I’ve possibly been looking for a little craft they can put together as well (maybe a small lego set?) Our DJ suggested we play the Chicken Dance for your third song. To loosen the kids up a little, make them feel welcome, and get them on the dance floor. I think the biggest thing for kids at a wedding is just to feel welcome. I’ve only been to one wedding as an adult but a lot under the age of 13 with my cousins. I always remeber that a wedding was really fun if we felt included. Such as the adults not ignoring us all together. It also helped if I found a little buddy to dance with me.

I’m going to make sure there are crayons and paper available for the kids.  All the kids invited love coloring.  I’ll also probably set up a lawn game or two next to the tent so that kids (and adults if they want) can play those.

We’ll have kids at mine too 🙂

I plan on putting together goodie bags for the young kids with little things to do like coloring, small toys, and more (I’ll be looking at oriental trading company).

 

I’m also thinking of going slightly “redneck” and setting up custom cornhole boards lol
