Crayons, markers, coloring books ~ hit up the dollar store for some random stuff.  Kids LOVE to draw and it keeps them busy.  Small, inexpensive puzzles.  Those shpaed skinny wrist bands all the kids are wearing now…they are about a dollar a pack.  It would be cute if you could find some old school bride paper dolls for the girls.  I would avoid candy and treats…..don’t wannna get the little buggers all hopped up on sugar.  Play dough is awesome, but it’s messy…….

I love the idea of the camera scavenger hunt! I’m going to put a disposable camera, crayons, a colouring book, and some bubbles into each of mine. I have several little ones coming so this will be a good way to keep them entertained! 🙂

I’m not giving them bags b/c I have treats for them there…some glow in the dark bracelets and swords…and bought rolls of toy story 3 coloring pages.  You roll it out, cut it, and they color away at the tables!

I’m doing glow-in-the-dark bracelets too!  Kids LOVE those!  You can find them in the dollar section at target, so I bought TONS and am sticking multiples in each bag.  We have a few boys around 6 years old attending the reception, so I’m also putting a couple matchbox cars in each of their bags.  Other than scribble pads and crayons, I’m not  sure yet what else I’ll be putting in there.  Those rubber band bracelets that are shaped like animals are a good idea… kids are crazy about those lately.

My cousins LOVE the glow-in-the-dark bracelets and necklaces, so those are definitely going in. Also, we’re having kids’ dinner tables and covering them with butcher paper instead of a tablecloth, so the kiddos can draw and color right at the table. Hmm, what else? Crayons, coloring pages, word search, a lollipop centerpiece at their tables. But I think the bracelets will be the biggest hit!

I like the scavenger hunt idea – maybe I’ll have to create one. Add it to the list 🙂

I wasn’t doing actual individual bags… but in the kids section we plan on having Lots of coloring books, crayons, colored pencils. trying to stay away from markers!  a few board games. My Fiance wants to take a TV so his little niece and nephews can watch a movie (dont know about this one). he even maybe wants to bring a Wii but we are worried the adults might want to go play..

So far we have planned a movie playing on a laptop (probably Swan Princess since it’s awesome), and a stack of coloring books with crayons, and maybe a boardgame. There won’t be many young ones but for something for them we will have that (with a babysitter we have yet to identify).

I got a bunch of crayons on sale during back to school time, but haven’t gotten anything else to go in them yet…
