    I'm having 6 teens and 4 children attend our wedding and wondering what to give them in their OOT bags. Are any of you ladies doing separate bags for teens/children? If so, what goodies are you giving?

      I only have one baby attending the wedding. She is my FI's niece and she will be 16 months. I bought her a pail with shovel. These little fishes to put in the water that float with her, goggles, arm band floaties, soft floating discs, and little animal things to make shapes in the sand. I have seen other ladies put things like coloring books and inflatable beach balls, water guns, rafts, things to build sand castles. Maybe those miniature video game thingys (mind you I don't have children so I have no clue how much a nintendo DS costs). Hope some of this helps.

        Cute! these ideas could definitely work for the babies/children. Thanks!

        ...Just what to do for the teens. Maybe just some beachy stuff? towel, flip flops, underwater camera? what else could you give a teen?

          idk what to do about the children.... I was going to stick to only the children in the bridal party(niece, nephew, jr. bridesmaids) because a) I really don't know what to get and B) I am already giving their parents one and I don't want to get a bunch of junk that they won't use.

          boy oh boy... I don't even know what to put in those kids oot bags so I will save that project til it gets closer to the wedding. Any suggestions?

            I have a 9 year old boy (my cousin) coming. My aunt said he likes arts & crafts kits, flip flops, funky sunglasses, madlibs and anything you can put together....so that's what I've been looking for.

            I also have my 19 year old brother, his 2 best friends (they grew up together so they're like my brothers too...otherwise they wouldn't be coming), and an 18 year old male cousin coming. I'm going to put guy's body wash and body spray into the teen guy's bags because they're always making sure they smell good. The only other thing I can think of that teens are really into is music...but I'm sure they wouldn't be traveling without their music. I know my brother would rather die than leave the house without his ipod. I'm mostly just giving them what the rest of the group is getting in their bags....but maybe you mean younger teens. I know teen girls like magazines and journals...cool colored pens (I'm a HS teacher & the girls are always borrowing my colored pens lol). Maybe get them a starter scrapbook and an underwater camera.

              i have 5 kids all under the age of 7. I am planning to go to a joke store and see what i can find as 3 of the kids are boys. I found some glow sticks that i thought would be cool for the kids to wave around at night of the wedding reception to entertain themselves.
              I have asked the parents what types of things the kids are interested in so I could maybe buy something including that eg steve mcqueen....flip flops..etc..miley cyrus...
              I likely will have to ask them again in Oct. as by then their interest may have changed!
              we will see.

                  We are putting a stainless steel water bottle with a sippy lid, pails and shovels for sand castles and a towel...the one you put over their heads and wear, were looking for a shark!
                  Today I marry my bestfriend, the one I laugh with, the one I love.

                    I didn't have teenagers but I had a 1.5, 4, 4.5, and 9 year old at our party. I got them little pails for the beach, lots of coloring books, stickers, balloons, crayons and things like that. I think if they are 12+, you should get them the same thing as adults would get. They *think* that they are adults at that point and getting them games would probably just annoy them. I did include playing cards for in all of the bags so I'm sure the teens would use those.

                      I am just going to the dollar store and buying some stuff that seems beachy and things that a teen would like :)
