Having A Kid-Friendly Wedding Reception!

For the most part, adults are pretty easily entertained; provide drinks, throw in a dance floor, and they’ll party like it’s 1999. Their juniors, on the other hand, are another story. What to do with the wee ones?

Some entertaining activities need to be provided for the little ones too – and rightfully so. If they have a good time, then staying longer at the party without them bothering you will be very much a reality! If they aren’t entertained, we all know it’s a short party for the parents, and the rest of the guests as well! With a few ideas from Colorado Party Rentals, keep the young party animals entertained at your next event or wedding reception with creative table ideas!

Craft Table

In addition to having a kids dining table, showcase a craft table for the youngins. Place bowls of crayons and stickers down the center of the table and have some craft for each child to make. Paper crowns for the girls, paper swords for the boys, or something that would correlate well with the theme of your wedding. Candy, adorning the center of the tables, always works wonders as well!

Game Table

For another activity table, display boxes filled with travel-sized board games, along with coloring books and crayons. No one can go wrong with a good game of Sorry! Have in mind the age of the children and provide a few games for different age groups.

Individual Activity Kits

If you are able, and if you have several kids coming, consider making a personalized kit for each child. You’ll instantly win them over, and earn bonus points with parents. Purchase solid colored lunch style boxes and fill with a few small items you know they would enjoy. Goldfish crackers, M&Ms, rubber dinosaurs, yo-yos, coloring books, candy – you get the idea. Be creative and think like a child!

Kids Dining Table

If you are providing canapés, serve child-friendly options for the kids. Carrot sticks and hummus, fruit, or string cheese and crackers would be great for children. To make it a party that even the kids will enjoy, throw in a hot dog stand, cotton candy machine or a popcorn cart!
