Our venue actually sets up a kids’ room, with a TV and movies.  We have tasked my FI’s son to gather up some board games, Legos, and stuff like that to also have in the room.  We are just having the kids sit with their parents for dinner – I pretty much believe that people should be responsible for their own offspring.  We are having a sort of teenagers table, but I expect them to be sufficiently entertained without any additional effort on my part.

We are having a kids table with a babysitter for our AHR. The parents will also be seated at tables close by. The tablecloth will be made from drawing paper and the centerpiece is made from flower suckers and chocolate sea creatures. Each kid will have a sand bucket at their seat with crayons, a coloring book, wedding activity book, a growing sea creature, and stickers. We are also having a steel drum band that does a limbo show and juggles so that should keep them entertained. They’ll also call the kids up as helpers. After dinner, the babysitter will be taking them back to our house (2 blocks away) to watch movies and go to sleep.

We are also serving them a kids meal of chicken fingers and fries, and a fishbowl full of blue jello and candy fish for dessert.

our venue is a natural history museum, so we’re having little kid-sized tables and chairs and covering the table with paper so that they can draw all over it (come on, isn’t that the real reason we all love macaroni grill??). i think i’m going to put together a scavenger hunt for them about things you can find in the museum. we’re also doing a goodie bag and putting on movies, as well as getting a babysitter.

I tasked one of my BMs to assemble individual kits for each child, to ensure there was no fighting over sharing issues.  She found little plastic lunchbox-like boxes at an arts & crafts store.  We personalized each with the kid’s name and filled them with gender-specific items.

So the little boys got Batman/Spiderman, etc., and the girls had a Disney Princess theme.  Each kit had coloring books and their own set of crayons, bubbles, stickers, fruit snacks, pretzels, and other toy items we found.  It was very inexpensive to do and they loved it.  No outbursts at all!
