Kids. They bring smiles to our faces and joy to our hearts. Kids are honest and their openness always brings a breath of fresh air to any space. Their laughter fills up the room, and whenever they are sad, we feel a personal responsibility to make them feel better. So, how do you keep kids entertained at your wedding? Put the devices down! We got you.
We all know too well that when kids are left to themselves or given nothing to do, their mischief is often too much to handle. Here are our top five suggestions on how to keep kids entertained at your wedding.
- Get an entertainer: Have you ever been to a kid’s party? There is something about an entertainer that absorbs all of their attention. Booking an entertainer will not only give them something to enjoy, but it will also give you and their parents time to enjoy your special day.
- Arts & Crafts: Have a room where kids can engage in different types of arts and crafts. The imagination and innovation of kids are vast, and they love to explore it. Giving them a space to do so allows for a fun day for kids & adults.
- Game room: Charades, Scrabble, cup stack, Jenga, Monopoly, Operation, Dress up, and Guess Who. These are just some of the games kids love to play and share with their friends. A game room allows for kids to engage with each other, have fun, and learn to collaborate at the same time. Oh yes, you also get to enjoy your time with the adults.
- Child Care providers: Hire professional child care providers to take care of kids in a separate space, a kid’s lounge. The kid’s lounge can be filled with a kid-friendly playlist, dance space, and a variety of activities to choose from (think after-school care). Meals can also be served in the lounge to really make this space all about the kids.
- Sweet Treats: Kid friendly snacks, meals and treats are a must have. Spoil them with treats that will keep the memories of your wedding a sweet reminder. Let them have all the fun and sweets. It is a wedding after-all.
- A nap station: Do not underestimate the power of a nap. Some kids don’t mean to be loud or mischievous, they have just been up all day at a party that is for adults. They are tired. Having space where kids can go to relax and unwind without throngs of adults around can make for a better experience for the kids and for you.
