To keep kids busy during wedding reception!

Recommended Posts

During my brainstorm of how to keep the kids busy during the wedding reception, with the help of you ladies, I was going to get them coloring sets, playing cards, puzzles and little knick nacks from the dollar store. I originally was going to put them in a little canvas bag with their name on it, to also use them as a place card seating.

I came across these Easter sand buckets at Michael's for only a $1!!!!!!! They can also use it during their play/sand time after the wedding!!

 

Easter Pails

 

I got the pink pails for the girls, and blue for the boys..

Is this a good idea?? Does this just call for wedding reception disaster?? After purchasing them, I had the vision of all the kids holding their new sand buckets throwing sand everywhere!! censored.gif

You are right, they are kids so it could go either way but if you make a game out of it, like see how many shells you can collect in your pail, then they will focused on a task and be less likely to just throw sand around. What is the age range of the kids?

I think this is a lovely idea.

 

We were going to do a box per child with goodies in it but like the 'pail' idea even more.

 

Thanks for sharing.

THIS IS SUCH AN AWESOME IDEA!!!! What I can do is add a "scavenger hunt" on top of the coloring books and puzzles i was going to put in them!!

The kids ages are between 3-7.. So, this would work out really good!

THANKS SOOO MUCH!! smile03.gif

Glad I could help, and that age range is perfect for a treasure hunt! I babysit for my 2 year old nephew so I am always trying to trick him into staying within my sight!

Is your reception in the evening or day? If its during the day - do you want the kids wandering off with their sand buckets to look for shells? Who is going to watch them while they do this? If it's during the evening, you definetely don't want them wandering off.

 

Granted we only had 4 kids, but our dinner was at 6:30. I put stickers, crayons, paper, glow sticks and coloring books. It kept them busy and in their seats. During the dancing part of the reception, the kids mostly played with the glow sticks and they ran around and danced.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
