Avoid tantrums with our top 6 ways to entertain kids at your wedding…
Now we know the sunshine can’t be guaranteed, but outdoor activities are a great way to keep your little guests entertained during the drinks reception and photographs. Giant Jenga, Connect 4, a coconut shy, boules, hook-a-duck, and anything else you can think of, are all great ideas. Arrange prizes for the winners, for an extra fun touch.
If you’re not so lucky with the weather, or want something extra for the evening, we recommend setting up an indoor ‘kids only’ area. Choose a quiet corner and pack it with a mix of activities. Here are just a few ideas to keep them occupied: Board games, lego, books, a ball pit, fancy dress costumes, a den…
On the table
Giving each child a party bag or activity pack is a great way to keep them busy during the speeches. Fill them with anything you like, from colouring books and crayons, to bubbles, stickers and puzzles. A shot list and disposable camera is a great idea and will keep the little ones entertained for ages.
Everyone loves a Photobooth, and this is something the kids can enjoy with each other and their parents. Whether you hire one or create your own, make sure there are a few props especially for the little ones, such as disney character masks or costumes.
Bring in the professionals
If in doubt, why not hire some entertainment? Face painting, magicians, ballon modelling, the list goes on. You can even hire professional event babysitters or a mobile creche to give the adults a break!
Guests young and old will love a sweetie buffet! Choose all your favourite treats, and if you pop a paper bag at each place setting, these can easily double up as favours!
