Here are a few suggestions to keep the little ones busy:
Have a kid's food bar. Load it with chicken nuggets, french fries, hamburgers and hotdogs, mini pizzas, etc. Feature a dessert bar with kids in mind.
Have a children's table if the parents would like to sit with other adults. Have your florist design a pinata, filled with inexpensive toys and activities. Give children their own favor, such as a coloring book, special for weddings, at the table. If the children are seated with their parents, place these coloring books at their seat to keep them busy.
You may want to consider hiring a babysitter to watch the youngest guests. Some reception sites offer a separate attached room, where the kids can enjoy their own space, watch videos, play, and the parents can visit as well.
Tip: Check with facility for a children's menu. If so, order kids meals for the kids. Many children will not like the beef Wellington or course you are serving, so why pay for it?
