Adorable kiddos are likely a cute part of any wedding day! Flower girls, ring bearers, and all sorts of cute kids make for delightful photo opportunities and sweet moments, but it doesn’t take long for a couple to start worrying about sticky hands, chocolate faces, and a child’s thirst for utter chaos and wreckage. Okay, so that’s a bit dramatic, but kids want to be entertained during your grown-up wedding event. By taking some extra time to plan out that entertainment, you can save everyone from tears and temper tantrums.
If you are at a loss for ways to entertain the little ones, don’t fret! We’ve compiled a few ideas to help you plan ahead and keep those kids busy and happy!
Provide Coloring and Writing Tools
Crayons and butcher paper can offer entertainment to kids of all ages. Provide coloring and writing utensils somewhere discrete and accessible to children, and preoccupy the little ones while the adults are toasting and taking photos! This is a cost-effective and easy way to capture the attention of little ones during your big event.
Set Up a Kids Room
NOAH’S Event Venue offers several different rooms for your big day—not just the spacious Main Hall. Consider utilizing one of these rooms as a kid’s playroom. Having safe toys, games, and treats available for kiddos is a great way to keep everyone happy. Oh, and playing kid-friendly music in this room will surely be a hit! You could even use this room for younger kids if they need somewhere to sleep before the event is over. Just keep in mind that having children in another room will require someone to supervise.
A childcare provider can supervise whatever kid-friendly activities you have planned and allow parents and loved ones to enjoy the more adult celebration. Hiring a professional for a few hours is worth every penny to make sure everyone is enjoying your spectacular day.
Include a Kid-Friendly Menu Option
While your older guests may enjoy almond-crusted salmon or couscous, the kiddos probably won’t. By providing some child-friendly options, everyone will enjoy their food, and no one will have to deal with a not-so-sweet outburst.
Children are a fun, cute, and probably unavoidable part of your big event. By taking some time to consider how to keep kids happy and entertained, you can avoid a few headaches during your special day and keep things smooth-sailing for guests of all ages!
