Have you chosen to invite children to your wedding? If yes, you may decide to provide a special children's wedding activity pack. During weddings. it is common for toddlers and children to feel restless or bored, which is why investing in wedding activity packs for children is always a great way to keep them entertained.

Having a little pack waiting for them at their seat will most definitely have them feeling extra special, and should hopefully (fingers crossed) keep them quiet at the table during the emotional speeches.

Make your own wedding activity packs for kids

If you prefer making your own wedding activity packs for kids, here are a few ideas. Bear in mind that some venues will have restrictions – for example, if you're getting married at a heritage site or a fancy hotel you may want to avoid play-doh and stickers (the last thing you want are toddlers and babies decorating the walls!)

1. A disposable camera – disposable cameras are so inexpensive these days, provide one for each child and let them click away.

2. A sketchbook and pencils/crayons (no felt tips or paint) – let the children get creative. If you decide to have a children's table, you could cover it with brown craft paper or rolls of thick white paper and let them draw on the table itself!

3. Activity book – you can buy pre-made activity books or make your own. You could include simple mazes, colouring pages and templates.

4. Finger Puppets – for a little imaginative and furry fun! You can buy finger puppets in sets of 5 (usually a more cost-effective option) or if you're feeling crafty you could create your own simple felt finger puppets.

5. Bubbles – a little pot of bubbles is always a winner!

6. Treats – you would need to find out about the children's dietary requirements for this one. You could include fun-size packets of Haribo or chocolates. Or healthy treats such as packets of grapes, carrots or apple slices.
