Having kids at your wedding can be a source of argument for couples.
Your significant other may disagree with what you want. Whether you are for or against kids at your wedding, it is a good idea to keep them entertained if they are going to be attending.
Creating a kids’ table at your wedding Rule # 1
Seat kids together. Kids have more fun if they are seated together. If they are sitting with adults, they will be bored and are more prone to whining.
Designate a kid’s table where all the kids can sit together.

iSpy placemats, crayons, and crafts. Kids love iSpy and it keeps them busy when they are not talking and laughing. Crayons are mess free and won’t ruin their good dress clothes. Also, consider plain paper crowns that the kids can color and wear.

Activity kits are a surprise treat that kids will love. Make sure that not every box is the same so kids can trade each other.
You can put treats like goldfish, gogurt, fruit snacks, and dried fruit in their boxes. Avoid candy that can give kids a sugar rush and make them hyper.
You can add small toys like yo-yos, silly putty, and colored pipe cleaners to keep their imaginations running wild.

Kids love buckets of glow sticks and bubbles. This is especially fun for an outdoor reception. Bubbles will keep the younger kids entertained for hours. The older kids will love a game of hide and go seek wearing glow sticks once the sun goes down.
Another idea is to hire a group of childcare attendants to make sure the kids have plenty to do. The attendants can meet the needs of the children, which allows parents to have a little free time.
Kids are easy to please and easy to entertain, especially when other kids are involved in the fun.
