Kiddies often put their parents into panic mode at weddings. Little munchkins get bored easily which results in silly fights, driving parents insane and what not! Building kid-friendly environment is the new basic amenity for the smooth functioning of the wedding, especially in India (coz we’re populous).
So, here are some ways which can help to make kids crew happy and will make your life simpler for your one big day…
If you’ve booked a farmhouse or any decent destination with sufficient empty space. Make that space countable for indoor games for the kiddies. Fun games such as hopscotch, play dough, treasure hunt, hide & seek, Jenga, hula hoop will keep them occupied for several hours. Ludo, UNO, and abacus are also good options.
Kids love to make and do; no matter how funny they come up with. Keeping a creative corner for kids will make them access towards art. So mini area with easel and pot of crayons and basic crafty things like drawing boards, sketches to paint, stickers could be fun to them. Wedding-themed crafts like make cards for bride and groom, prepare a dance, decorate the cake or even DIY masks for their photobooth would create hours of fun and keep those shouting mouths busy-busy.
Children gravitate towards colors, so having a tattoo artist could be a bonus as they would love getting inked with colorful and playful tattoos. They will be just adding up as another element to keep your child busy with artsy.
Stock up the kids' photobooth with tons of dress-up items and photo props. Include items like funny hats, cartoon characters, feather boas and even popular mustache on sticks. Kids may go crazy to get themselves clicked and keep themselves entertained with this. With this don't forget to assign a separate photographer for them.
P.S- Don’t get too involved in yourselves. Keep a regular check on kids that they are having fun rather than becoming spoilers or fighting with one another.
