I did coloring books, activity books and little cans of playdoh.  What is the age range of the kids you have coming?

How about some matchbox cars and crafty objects? When babysitting, I loved bringing along some big wooden beads and thick strings for the girls to make necklaces out of. Tailoring the size to the age of the kids.

Yep the playdoh was fine.  We rented satin linens and they didnt ruin them at all.  We also got little toy cars for the little boys (3 years) and some stuff from the dollar bin at Target and their party aisle.  We found the thing that comes with a magnetic pen and you move around the "hair" on the face (cant think of the name) and they really enjoyed that.  Check out Targets party aisle they have alot of little knick-knak favors.

we did activity/coloring books that we’d made and personalized, and my mom made crayon/colored pencil rolls in our wedding colors that each child picked up when their parents received programs.  They were really cheap and we seemed to go over well, several kids came up to me during the reception to show me wedding cakes & dresses they had drawn (even the boys, although their cakes had dragons on them) πŸ˜‰

We also did the knick-knack’s from the target dollar section in special kid Out of Town bags along with some McDonalds Happy meal toys we had on hand from a bridesmaid who had leftovers from a preschool group trip.  We saw several of those items in action at the reception as well, especially the hot wheels and glow sticks.

We had a bunch of little ones at our wedding, too.  In addition to the custom coloring books and colored pencils, another one of the hits were the Martha Stewart hand puppet craft kits that I found at Walmart.  They come in various animal styles and bring like 6 to a pack.  All of the felt pieces are pre-cut and self-adhesive… so no need for scissors or messy glue.  The kids LOVED them!  :o)

Everyone else gave really good directions, I was just going to say, what you called them "Kid Kits" totally reminded me of my preteen days of reading The Baby-Sitters Club.  πŸ™‚  That’s all.

hehe mandalynn I thought of BSC too!


You could get kraft paper and have their table lined with it so they can color directly on there. You might also want to do an "I Spy" page where they can watch the wedding "I Spy A Woman in a Green Dress" or "I spy someone with a disposable camera". Kind of a "scavenger hunt of wedding things".

oh GaBGal… i love the idea of a savenger hunt/i spy… great idea!  also, i know there are websites where you can make you own crossword puzzles & word searches that would be lots of fun for kid kits too!

We’re doing a table outside (picnic table) for the kids.  There will coloring, toys, bubbles, playdoh, glow bracelets, snacks (goldfish), juice, and their own personalized cups.

We will have children too and have so far collected:  (from the Dollar Store)

– Games: like checkers and old maid, at least 2 of each

– Activity Puzzles – wooden dinosrs that can be put together

– fun jewelry for the girls

We made a wedding coloring book – I googled coloring book pages and got tons of files – then just printed and copied.  We used construction paper to match the wedding colors as the cover and bound then with holes punched and 3 little rings.

I’m looking into a few "activity craft kits" from places like Oriental Trading as well.

I know you’ll be outside, but we’re also bringing one of our own small TVs and a game system and DVDs

Good luck!
