Cool idea. That same company makes all sorts of other books that might work too. My Fiance and I bought one for ourselves for fun. It’s one of those where you try to figure out the answer through hints, like “suzy is taller than jimmy. Timmy is taller than jimmy… who is the tallest?”

I am stuck in the same boat!  Little ones are so easy to entertain, but the big kids are difficult.  These puzzles are very neat, I will have to look into them!  I thought about making favor boxes and putting a deck of cards, or games like PIG in them for the older kids. 

Our wedding is going to be outdoors, so I was thinking of setting up outdoor games AWAY from the reception tent.  I really dont have any other ideas!  Embarassed

Word of caution, how young does “young teen” mean? because I know that when I was 13+ anything like this would have earned a super snotty attitude/remark as well as many a hearty eye roll –I would have felt like I was being “treated like a baby” (and then would have likely sulked like a good teenager haha).

Personally I think this is a pretty cool idea, but 13yr old self would prob thought the opposite.
