Keeping children entertained at your wedding can take a little planning.  Your reception guests will really appreciate the chance to enjoy all of the fun.  Here are 6 of the best ideas to entertain children at your wedding.

#6 – Hire a Children’s Entertainer

If you can afford it, hire a professional entertainer. Face painters, Balloon artists, Story tellers etc. can keep the little ones entertained for hours.  It’s an easy way to keep the kids happy and distracted while the adults mingle and enjoy the festivities. (You can find children entertainment vendors here.

#5 – Hire Professional Babysitters or Childcare

Many brides choose to hire a babysitter.  They keep an eye on the children so no one gets hurt—or create distractions for your guests. The babysitter can be in charge of your other kids-friendly activities. And they can help you plan the activities as well. Find out more here.

#4 – Provide A Separate Meal Area

Creating a separate menu and meal area for your younger guests can help keep them entertained.  Finger foods that can be provided as needed by your childcare staff will keep children happier.  A separate meal area can contain noise also.

#3 – Provide A Naptime Area

Setting up a quiet room where they can rest after a long day of play can help keep children occupied. If you’re expecting very young children, chances are they’ll be asleep before the event’s over’ But you may also have some sleepy kids even if they’re older.

#2 – Setting Up a Game Room

For older children, having a game room can keep them entertained. Ping pong, video games, arcade equipment can all be rented and setup.  If yours is more of an outdoor wedding, set up lawn games and activities like a three-legged race, cornhole or a classic game of hide-and-seek.

#1 – Kid Friendly Music

Having your DJ setup a separate area for kids with appropriate music can also be fun.  You don’t have to worry about the content, and your older guests can enjoy their dancefloor without stepping on children.
