Sorry, I meant to post this in my other thread about occupying little guests🤦🏻‍♀️

@bookmum08 Usborne sticker books look like they could occupy them for a while, thanks!

I’m worried that anything like Lego, Playmobil figures etc. will end up being dropped under the table and half the table will end up getting distracted looking for it. Or is that just in my head?

@sleepismysuperpower1 Do you mean buy one playset and give each child parts of it to put them together later? They won’t be sitting next to each other so it might be difficult to share. But stickers sound good.

Does anyone know of activity packs for 18-24-month-olds? Or should I just ask their parents what they like closer to the big day and get them that? Would it be cheeky to ask parents to bring something to entertain their kids which is guaranteed to keep them from getting bored during the meal and speeches?

for the youngest you could get a happyland church playset and then put a couple of figures in each box, along with a pack of larger stickers?

When DD was younger we called her a professional bridesmaid as she did the role so often. She was given a variety of gifts from jewellery to mini Lego kits (her favourite), sticker books, fancy pencils and musical jewellery box.

Playmobil or ELC Happyland wedding figures? Sticker books like the Usborne ones - I expect there are wedding themed ones.

Petal patrol, love it, thanks! Yes, I’m thinking a badge and activity pack each is enough, but what age range are all activity packs for? They all seem to be generic, and I can’t decide if they will be too hard for 1.5/2-year-olds (word searches, scrambled words etc.) and too easy for 5-year-olds?

what about an activity box like this each, and then the badge you mentioned above for the boys, and a petal patrol one for the girls?

We want to involve all the kids in the wedding ceremony and give them little thank you gifts. I’ve looked through loads of Pinterest and Etsy pages and find the usual personalised teddies and bracelets so boring. Any nicer ideas that are under £10 and maybe either fun or useful, or both?

I like the ‘ring security’ badges for the boys that you can get on Etsy. Think colouring books will make part of the gift to give them something to do during speeches. But nothing fun like that for the girls. Kids are all aged under 5.
