My future husband and I decided to invite all of the kids in our family to our wedding to help meet our caterer’s 150 guest minimum. We got kind of excited about it since we’re both big kids ourselves, and now we had an extra excuse to let that part shine through at our wedding — under the guise of entertaining our little guests! That said, I think I got kind of carried away in making this Activity Book to keep them entertained. Here is the final draft…

First page:  People Bingo!  We're hoping this will encourage our guests of all ages to interact.

The final pages have the answer keys to several of the games. The back cover asks them to draw us a picture and rip it out of the book to give to us:

[related-post align=”right”]I’m a regular zinester, so I found it was relatively easy to whip out a little book. (Perhaps too easy, which may be why I kept going and going with it.) If you use my ideas as a base, and fire up program like Word or PowerPoint, you can make one of these for yourself too!

Looking for more program inspiration?

  1. This is AWESOME! I used to be a teacher so I know how much work this must have been to put together. It looks great!

  2. This is super sweet! We’ll probably have kids at the wedding and this would be a great thing to keep them occupied.

  3. Love it! We’ve been brainstorming about activities for the kids’ tables. These are SO much better than plain ol’ coloring books.
    GREAT JOB!

  4. I LOVE THAT! So creative and fun! I may have to come up with something similar for the kiddos at our wedding. I’ve seen crosswords before, but I adore the idea of the scavenger hunt and the people bingo! I agree that it would be awesome for encouraging ALL of the guests to have some fun!!!!

  5. This is the most awesome idea I’ve ever seen. I now feel I must have a wedding straight away so I can have an excuse to make these! So creative and super fun!!!

  6. Oh man, now I wish I could fit more kids at my reception, this is amazing! Great job!
