Kids at Your Wedding!
Okay let's face it, kids love weddings too! They get to dress up, dance and eat CAKE! But at some point in the whole celebration, when they are tired of dancing and taking pictures, boredom sets in,parent's get frustrated because they really want to stay and have a good time, but I am a witness, when your child is ready to go, you have about a 20 second count down before they completely erupt in to full display of intolerance. Whew, it is both embarrasing and disappointing, because every parent knows the longer the reception the more fun, right?! Well, here is your Ace in the Hole! Designate a Kids ZONE! Set it apart from the reception (in the same room). Be sure to place it away from all exits and bathrooms, safety first! You could even rope it off (tastefully) and add a NO GROWNUPS sign to make them feel special. Fill it will all things kid. Start with a few lures in the snack department like, Lolliy Pops, cupcakes, applesauce pouches, chex mix, popcorn,etc (stay away from allergy foods with peanuts). Next Create the Fun, with puzzles, uno cards, coloring books/crayons, wordfinds, board games (checkers, connect four, and Tic Tac Toe), and any other create activity you can think of that would keep a kid busy. Lastly, assign a adult to the area, just to keep watch and make sure everyone plays fair! With this you should have happy kids and parents at your reception!
