Activities for kids
Often times, setting up a kids station can be a great way to keep them together. Since other parents may not be able to find sitters for your wedding day, it would be a great addition to add. Of course smaller babies shouldn’t attend a wedding, other kids around 2-10 should be able to have their own place area. This will allow the parents to enjoy their time as well as the kids.
Children cut out leaf wreaths from templates and then color them with Crayola or paint.
Each child is allowed to draw a set of a plate with cutleries. The plate has the same dimension as the one each child will use for eating. Then when the food is ready each child can place hi/her plate on the paper plate mat.
It is made with colored papers. The papers are cut into a small rectangular shape and then made into round shapes by applying paper gum on them. The rounded paper is then connected together with a rope and tied at the end. Kids can wear them as a necklace or garlands.
A dance party
If your kids are between the age of 2 and 4, organizing a dance party for them can be fun.
Get them some children songs playing on the DVD and allow them to have some fun and exercise time while you get some free time to yourself.
You can get a wooden puzzle that displays an animal image that your kid love to play with like a dog or chicken. Get the puzzle scattered and let your kid get it arranged back into the image of the dog.
