Don’t forget about the wee ones at your wedding! Not only do they bore easily, but sitting still during ceremonies and dinners can lead to antsy pants. Set up a wedding games area just for them or pack their table with wedding games and fun activities to keep them entertained.
- Chalkboard Games: Turn the games you’d find on a children’s restaurant placemat— tic tac toe, hangman, dots and squares—into fun wedding games by creating erasable chalkboard versions so kids can play, wipe away and start again.
- Mini I Spy: Create an I Spy Wedding Game just for the kiddos by creating scavenger lists filled with pictures instead of words. Pictures can include the wedding cake, a ring, shoes, a dress, balloons and food. Supply them with disposable cameras and watch the hilarity ensue!
- Just Hitched Hopscotch: For an outdoor wedding, draw out a hopscotch grid or create one using large foam tiles for kids to burn off some energy. If the party is strictly indoors, find a low-traffic hallway or even a long coat closet to set up an inside design using easy-to-remove painter’s or paper tape.
- Dance Off: Adult guests can be slow to the dance floor, but that’s where kids can come in handy. Gather everyone around for a kids dance-off. Have kids dance together, or pair up an adult and kid to challenge one another to the best moves. You’ll tucker the little ones out quickly all while getting the party started without a lot of pressure.
- Couple’s Coloring Book: For the itty bitties of the kid’s group, create a wedding-inspired coloring book based on the details of your special event. Pair it up with a favors box filled with crayons, colored pencils and stickers to help them personalize their takeaway activity book.
- Cake Piñata: What says “kids” more than candy? And when that candy comes flying out of a wedding-themed piñata, it makes for the highlight of the kids’ wedding games. Pick a design that doubles as décor, features the couple’s initials, or looks like a giant wedding cake. Call everyone—adults included—to the dance floor to take a whack at spreading sweet treats to the crowd.
- Cootie Catchers: Also known as paper fortunes, these origami fortune tellers get a cool new look from the old junior high notebook paper version. Design your own or purchase printable custom designs. Fill a batch with questions for the kids and reserve others made just for the adults.
