    Is anyone doing different gifts, favors or OOT bags for children? We'll have a number of children attending and would like to get them something different from the adult guests. Thanks for your help!

      I am planning on doing something different for the kids. I have my Godson and some nieces and nephews coming, I was going to get my Godson (who is only going to be 3 at the time) some age appropriate stuff, probably a little pack of crayons and see if i can find a wedding coloring book or something like that, plus I was looking at the Oriental Trading website and they have stuff like a dozen inflatable mini beach balls for $5.99, I was going to get things like that, and I also picked up some Lipsmackers chapsticks when they were on sale for the girls.


      I've seen other people do water guns as well, you'll find lots of ideas on the oriental trading site, what about inflatable pool toys, kid sunglasses, hats? Just some ideas..

        Is there a Fove Below store in your area?  I went there and created a nice goodie bag for the one child attending.  I call it the stocking stuffer store...all types of really cool stuff!

          I was going to suggest Oriental Trading as well!  It is a great place to get large amounts of toys and things like that.  I use it for my classroom a lot.  We don't have too many kids coming, so we are getting those who do come some neat little things that will keep them occupied and make the parents' lives easier.  I was thinking beach balls, beach pails, coloring books, those types of things.  You could also just throw a few things in the adult bags if you want too!  Good luck!

                  I just picked up sand buckets, shovels etc. from Walmart for the 4 kids coming to our wedding. It'll keep them busy for hours building sand castles on the beach!
