6 Ideas for Kid Wedding Entertainment

But what about your youngest wedding invitees? As you plan your outdoor summer picnic wedding or indoor reception, don’t forget to think about the needs of the toddlers, kids, and tweens attending your special day by planning kid-friendly wedding entertainment.

Face Painter

Consider hiring a professional face painter who can also give you a live event painting of your special day. Make sure your photographer knows that you’ve hired a face painter, so they can get memorable pictures of your painted youngest guests.

Juggler

Another option is to set a kid entertainment zone in another room after your wedding ceremony or during your reception.

Yard Games

For afternoon fun, set up an area at your wedding with yard games for toddlers, kids and tweens (you may even find the adults join in!). Consider a sac race, rent a bounce house, or get them going with games of Frisbee or bean bag toss. If your venue has a baseball field or playground, or you are including messier games, such as an egg race, in your list of yard games, let your guests know there may be some rowdy and messy fun on your online and printed invitations. The parents of your youngest guests will thank you later.

Hay ride

If you are holding a rustic barn wedding, a hay ride is a natural part of your wedding entertainment. Make sure you have discussed liability or insurance if needed before your wedding day to make sure you and your guests are covered, then enjoy the fun of your rustic wedding entertainment.

Coloring tables

At the very least, set out coloring pads and crayons at the tables where kids are going to be seated. If you have picnic tables, get a roll of craft paper and let your young guests create a fun table runner while they wait for dinner. If you think they’ll have more time, create a small craft table with stickers and other easy crafts that’ll keep kids occupied.

Magician

Bring the magic of your special day to the little ones attending your wedding day. Hire a professional magician to ensure that the kids have a great time and aren’t heckling (or getting into mischief!) at your wedding.

To plan the perfect entertainment that makes your wedding day perfect for you and all your guests, contact an experienced entertainment agent that can schedule entertainment that keeps even your youngest guests happy.

Children’s Entertainers that Brings Giggles to Your Family Event

children's entertainerIf you’re trying to attract families, or are holding an event where families with children are sure to attend, don’t neglect the little ones when choosing your event entertainers. Undoubtedly, parents have a far better experience if they and their children have entertainers that cater to them. We’ve seen it—and can provide first-hand accounts—of weddings, summer festivals and corporate events where the planners provided children’s entertainers that wowed everyone. Children’s entertainers like:

Magicians. Magicians are one of the first children’s entertainers that come to everyone’s mind, and for good reasons. Magicians are versatile children’s entertainers because they can adapt to almost any event venue—on a stage or interacting one-to-one with your guests—and provide tricks that wow guests of all ages.

Jugglers. Just like magicians, jugglers are versatile and can cater their entertainment to your event venue. They are also entertainers that are suitable for adults and children of all ages, and can even incorporate your guests into their act.

Face painters. These classic children’s entertainers are more suited to children, but some adults seem to enjoy their services as well. If you want an entertainer for adults at your event as well, ask us about caricature artists. The face painters can keep the children entertained while the caricature artists give the adults some artsy entertainment as well.

Fun singers. Singers are unique entertainers who can customize their act to almost any event, and any size event venue. Just ask us about singers that can include children and adults into their acts, or for a children’s singer for one stage, and a singer more suited to adults at another stage.

This list is just a few of the children’s entertainers that can attract families to your event—and keep them entertained at your event.
