While there’s always discussion on whether or not children will or won’t be attending certain weddings, there’s not a single doubt in my mind when they do make the “A List,” they’ll have nothing but love for these creative, autumnal creations!

*Candy Apple Creation Stations

Feel free to set up a table and cover it with stick sturdy apples, warmed caramel, melted chocolate and all the crushed candy toppings you can find, and let your guests enjoying making their own treat to eat or take with them when they leave!  It’s a great way to involve your guests as well as keep the kiddies occupied.  (And no worries about hyping them up on too much sugar… they’re not going home with you!  Haha!)

*Pumpkin Carving Campgrounds

Okay, you don’t really need campgrounds, but the name just rolls off the tongue; so, I went with it :)  Anyhoot, this is something – when done under adult supervision – can be a really great way to create lasting memories, as well as super fun photographs for your album.  Hit up your local pumpkin patch, buy in bulk and let the fun begin!  Feel free to accompany this reception section with pumpkin carvers, gloves and aprons… and if you’re worried that the carving may cause too much stress, use acrylic paints instead!  And let the kiddies paint on their favorite face!

*Coloring Book Bonanza!

There’s no question that kids love to color.  Whether you choose to man your coloring book station with fairy tale / dream-come-true images or Marvel comics finest character pages, there’s no doubt that kids of all ages will love gettin’ their color on during your big reception!

*Disposable Glam Cams for Kids

And even more so than coloring, kids love feeling like grownups; so, why not arm your mini attendants with disposable glam cams for their very own “I feel soooo biiiig!” photography debut?  They can get goofy pics of each other while trying their best to capture the day as they see it.  And trust me on this one… some of their finds will be priceless :)

*Face-painting, Magic Tricks and Balloons… Oh My!

Pending your budget, sometimes the most well received children stations are the most over-the-top ones!  So, bring in a magician, a balloon animating clown or even a face painting wizard to really let the kids get “wild” at your wedding!  Of course, it never fails, sometimes these sections become even more populated by adults.  I mean, come on, who doesn’t love a butterfly painted face or giraffes made out of rubber?  Uhhh, no one!  Duh :)
