{the purpose of fun – is to have it}

While planning a wedding, it’s easy to get caught up in the details, the food, the music, the activities, etc. that entertain you and your kin alike – what we {I} tend to forget are the wee ones that will be attending.  This though sparked another one of my great wedding investigations 🙂.


Here is some of the ::fun:: inspiration I found to keep the kiddos occupied, entertained and happy at the wedding (not to mention the parents):



The Little White Book

{see the coloring on the paper table cloth? – brilliant :)}


The Little White Book




LOVE the idea of DiY coloring books – I’m thinking My Little Pony and Ninja Turtles –a  few of my faves as a child that I’d love to share with the little ones ;).





Queen City Bride

{love the idea of the sign for the table}

Intimate Weddings also suggests these inexpensive ideas to add to the kids’ tables:

  • Play Dough
  • Bubbles
  • Crayons and coloring pages
  • Simple (non-messy) crafts
  • Beading
  • Make a monster or robot
  • There’s also the option of having a DVD player with a kids movie, complete with popcorn.

Hope these help spark some inspiration in your inner child as well – these are definitely going in my “planning book” – more thoughts on these later!
