We're getting married this Sep and one thing on our list was to either buy or put together some children's activity packs for the day. There's only 4 children coming- all under 7.
Can anyone recommend where we can buy pre made packs or any advice on what to put in these?
Alot of the favour shops do them.
do lovely ones - you can get wedding activity packs and general ones
I made my own packs for the 5 children at our wedding. All in all I think they came to less than €10 each but you could definitely do them cheaper.
I got some nice gift bags and filled them with:
- Loom bands
- Small jigsaw (from pennys)
- Small colouring book
- Pencils & Crayons (avoid markers as they will stain clothes and table cloths)
- I made up wedding themed puzzle books with design I got from the internet. I just search wedding puzzles and got a lots of results. The kids loved these!!
Hope this helps!
I've done one for our FG who will be three...
I have handmade Disney princess finger puppets
Colour in your own jigsaw
Crayons and a blank card and envelope with a label that says, colour in a card for the bride and groom
An activity/colouring book (wedding themed) that I downloaded and printed off, also added in some other non wedding related colouring pages of characters I know she likes (Winnie the pooh, doc mc stuffins etc)
I bought mine on eBay off vintage*snob. She had the best value and nicest kiddy packs I could find and she personalises each bag.
I ordered them and also added in a few extra bits, like some sweets and I gave each one a wedding camera and a game if 'I spy with my camera' with a list if photos the kids should get on the day, I.e Bride and groom kissing, and Aunt silly dancing, me having fun... They went down a storm and kept the kids entertained for hours especially the cameras.
We're doing the disposable cameras with a treasure hunt type list for our nieces and nephews, who are aged between 6 and 9. Having great fun making up the list . . Picture of the bride dancing, picture of the best man falling over etc. . . you can make them as outrageous or as easy as you like. We are making each list different so they are not annoying the same people all evening! I hope they'll get some gems of pictures!
