I gave each child their own seat with their parents. Some were babies in stollers but I still made a place card for them.

I would give the kids their own name card/chinese container.

We have a very similar situation with a lot of children attending our reception. I think that we will end up giving a seat to each child who’s old enough to sit in one (that is, around age 2 and up). I think that’s what will end up being the most comfortable for everyone, even though it does mean a lot of seats! 

As for the name cards/favors, that sounds like a really cute idea. I think, if it’s in your budget, that the kids would love to have their own. For the kids whose names you don’t know, maybe you could write something like “The [FI’s Cousin] and [Girlfriend family]” on 8 different cards (for the 6 kids and 2 adults). That way it’s clear that they each have their own seat, the kids are happy because they get their own favor, and you don’t have to figure out all their names.
