keepingkidsentertained-webIf you plan on having kids at your wedding reception, here are a few helpful ideas to have at the table to keep the kids entertained. Remember the dollar tree or any discount store is a great place to stock up on these supplies and not break the bank.

Coloring: Cover the table with butcher paper and in small buckets place markers and crayons. Let the kids go crazy with drawing all over the table. Another fun ideas is to create little placemats for each kid. Include various animals or shapes for them to color in.

Toys: Place buckets of various toys in the center of the table or at each place setting. These buckets can include color books, plastic toys, games, action figures, or anything kids would love.

Game: At each place setting have a book of games or a crossword (for older kids). The games could be group related or individual. Anther option is to include a list for a scavenger hunt at each place setting. Leave a disposable camera at the table and assign someone in charge of taking pictures of the findings. This will keep them occupied for hours and provide some laughs when the pictures are developed.
