Cute Wedding Kids Table Ideas

First, Keep the Kids Happy During the Ceremony

The last thing you want to hear during a wedding ceremony is noisy kids. One cute way to keep them entertained is with some bubbles! It’s a festive way to celebrate your nuptials and the kids love them. 

Create a bubble station where kids and guests can grab some bubbles before sitting down.

Or, you can leave them at each seat as a fun wedding favor idea.

You can find loads of wedding favor bubbles on places like Amazon and Etsy, too.

Get creative as far as how you contain them; a basket would work well for a shabby chic wedding, whereas a modern acrylic box would work better for a more contemporary wedding.

Kid-Friendly Wedding Reception Ideas

If you’re hosting a kid-friendly wedding reception, you’ll want to include some cute and clever ways to keep them entertained!

Another cute kids table activity at a wedding is to set up some interactive games. This cute idea was spotted via The Knot and sends kids on a mission to “snap” photos of everything on the printable list.

Most kids need several different forms of entertainment to keep them happy all night long, so I love the idea of creating small kid-friendly wedding “kits” that come with little games, activity books and more to keep busy. Plus, this means one less wedding centerpiece for you to create!

Cookies and milk in fancy glasses is a cute way for the little ones to “toast” to a good evening. You could also set up a french fry station, or skewer practically anything like fresh fruit or chicken fingers.



Hot dogs passed around during cocktail hour will satiate hungry tots. And gourmet burger sliders and mini pizzas look darling and are popular among the adults, too! 

Remember, you don’t have to make an entirely separate menu just for kids, but a few items that you know they’ll love is always nice to consider.

Just like anything when it comes to your wedding, it’s best to keep it simple. That may mean a regular menu, and quesadillas for the kids as an option.
