If you are inviting some younger wedding guests, you need to think a bit outside of the box when it comes to wedding favors. Your typical adult-friendly wedding favors won’t do – the kids deserve a favor of their own! These wedding favors will make even the tiniest guests happy on your wedding day.
Bubbles are always a hit with kids! Get some sweet bubble sticks so that the kids can play with them throughout the night. Plus, they can blow some bubbles when you are walking down the aisle with your new spouse, making for some great photos!
If you grew up loving temporary tattoos, you know how much fun they can be for kids. Find a variety of temporary tattoos that match your wedding theme for a sweet touch.
I Spy List and Disposable Camera
This wedding favor will keep the kids entertained for hours – making both the parents and the children happy. Purchase a bulk of disposable cameras, and then create a wedding “I Spy” list for the kids to work through. Some ideas for the list include: “someone eating a piece of cake”, “a guest dancing”, “a fancy piece of jewelry”, “a bouquet of flowers”, and so on.
Coloring Book with Crayons and Stickers
This is another favor that’ll keep the kids entertained all throughout the reception. Put together a little activity bundle with a coloring book, crayons, and stickers so that the kids can have fun being creative. For an extra special touch, find a wedding-related coloring book, or one that coordinates with your theme or venue.
Bag of Candy
Candy is always a safe bet when it comes to kids – just be sure not to go overboard to avoid a sugar high! Pick out some candies that match your wedding color scheme (gummy worms, M&Ms, jelly beans, gumballs – the options are endless!), and fill up some cute small bags with these sweet treats.
Another sweet treat wedding favor idea is candy bracelets. The kids will feel special as they are rocking their cool piece of “jewelry”, and the amount of candy is just enough to keep them happy without sending them into a sugar high.
Miniature games take up very little space and can keep kids entertained for hours. They are also something the kids can use for years to come! Plus, for guests coming in from out of town, it’ll keep the kids entertained as they are traveling back home (something the parents will greatly appreciate). There are plenty of travel-sized games available, including tic-tac-toe, connect four, checkers, and more.
This is a particularly great idea if you are doing a photo booth. Gift the kids some dress-up accessories, such as animal ear headbands, sparkly masks, or goofy scarves. Then they can show off their style in their photo booth photos!
