From fun activity books to scavenger hunts to personalized water bottles that double as wedding favors, we've rounded up some of our favorite wedding table ideas for kids for this Garter Girl Loves wedding inspiration and ideas round up.
First, you'll want to be sure to designate a table specifically for the kids. Be sure to add this into your reception plan with your caterer, wedding planner, and rental company. You can decorate the kids' table keeping within your wedding theme and add a kids table sign or you can opt for a fun tablecloth that's just for kids. (Or what about a paper table cloth that IS a coloring pad itself for the kids' table?!)
Second, be sure to add plenty of coloring and activity books to keep the kids busy! Downloadable and printable wedding games are always fun for kids who can read. We really love the idea of a wedding menu specially designed for the kids table that is also coloring sheet. Bubbles and yard games are a great source of fun for the little ones, especially at outdoor wedding receptions.
Don't forget to talk to your caterer and bar staff about virgin or mocktail versions of your wedding's signature cocktails. This will be good for your wedding guests who don't drink, but also the kids. They will feel special and included, especially if there is a fun straw or drink stirrer in their "cocktail" too!
Ready for everyone to join in on the fun? Opt for a wedding cake piñata - the kids are sure to enjoy the surprises inside and taking a swing may be a fun photo opportunity for the bride and groom.
Another fun game to play at the kids' table at a wedding reception is a scavenger hunt for the kids to do. You can easily make up a few ideas, such as "find the bride's second cousin" or find "something sparkly and round" (hint: your engagement ring!) and add the hunt to the back of the menu. A wedding themed scavenger hunt will be fun and give them something to do while the grown ups are also having a good time!
Adding these kids' table signs, wedding games, and other fun wedding kids table ideas from Etsy will ensure your youngest wedding guests enjoy the reception.
Let's be honest, attending a wedding and watching the grown ups talk and reconnect isn't always the most fun for kids. Before the band or DJ get started, leave a few fun and games for the kids' at their special table and they'll love it! There are lots of fun ways to keep the kids occupied at your wedding. You and the kiddos will love these activities and games.
If you're having a special table just for the kids' wedding, there are so many fun ideas and affordable ideas to decorate the table and make them feel special. And, if you aren't having a special kids' only table, consider leaving a coloring book or scavenger hunt for each child wedding guest at their seat or in a special basket on the gift table. They will appreciate it!
