Fun wedding favours to keep kids busy and learning on your special day with Learning Resources

Planning a wedding is stressful! Fortunately for brides-to-be and wedding planners, finding ways to keep young guests entertained and having fun on the big day is easy with the play experts at Learning Resources®.

Browse our wedding favours for children shopping page where we’ve put together a handy shopping page featuring fun options for children of all ages. Here you’ll find great ideas for toys such as Playfoam®, the award-winning squishy, squashy, sculpting, sensory play toy that will keep little hands busy. Playfoam never dries out, so your young guests can play and have fun for ages and take it home afterwards.

Wedding Activities For Kids – Here are 3 ways to keep young guests entertained and having fun:

  • When you’re little, the ceremony can feel like it takes for ever! Quiet toys such as Playfoam are ideal to hand out as guests come in and will keep little hands and minds engaged while you say your ‘I dos’.
  • Arrange an activity station to entertain young guests during the reception while the grown-ups enjoy the speeches. Try adding our themed counters to a sensory tuff tray made using our award-winning Playfoam Pluffle™. This feelgood fluffy stuff is non-sticky and will keep little ones busy with tactile play. The Playfoam Pluffle™ Sensory Station has everything you need to set up this activity and pack away afterwards
  • Kanoodle® logic puzzle games are a great way to keep older children occupied. These are portable solo games for ages 7+ and make ideal wedding favours for older children.
  • Finally, Learning Resources has a range of free printable activity sheets that can be printed out and used to keep young guests busy, learning, and having fun. From colouring sheets to scavenger hunt lists, brides-to-be and wedding planners will find a range of fun wedding activities for kids that can be done indoors and outdoors.

More about E & O Design…

Based in Cheshire, I primarily create beautiful wedding stationery for couples across the UK. Whilst immersing myself in all things wedding, I put my ‘mum’ hat on and got to thinking about how difficult it can be to keep children entertained during the wedding breakfast and speeches!

Any Mums and Dads out there I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about! So if you want your wedding guests to completely relax, drink a nice cold glass of bubbly, eat a hot meal and keep your smallest of guests happy at the same time then look no further!

I have created these fun filled children’s activity packs currently recommended for ages 5+, but keep your eyes peeled, I have ideas in the pipeline for ages 2-4 coming soon.

The top of the range wedding activities for kids pack at £16.95 includes all of the following:

  • Activity book

T-Shirts with Fab Dab Do – Wedding Activities for Kids

T-Shirts with Fab Dab Do - Wedding Activities for Kids

Children love to make and create and what better than making a t-shirt which marks the special day.  This activity works brilliantly if you have organised adult/older sibling supervision, it will keep them busy whilst the adults can carry on celebrations.

The mess free paints have dabber tops and this means the t-shirts dry very quickly and the area is kept clean. Alternatively keep them busy at the table with our stencils, just add a pot of pens and a notebook so they can doodle away.
