Have I got a gift for you, or what?!  Before Ryan and I got married, we realized our ceremony and reception were going to be chock full of kiddos, and we didn’t have anything fun for them to do.  So I sat right down and started drawing, and ended up with a little activity book that ended up being a HUGE hit. To this day, it’s our most downloaded freebie and our most popular blog post. (And we don’t even blog about wedding stuff any more!) But this printable wedding activity book for kids has helped so many brides and grooms, and I hope it helps you too.  Keep reading to print it out for free.

How to Entertain Children at a Wedding Reception

It’s no secret that weddings and receptions can be spectacularly boring for kids. And as the adults, we want to be able to relax, enjoy the festivities, and not be constantly concerned that our little ones are going to scream during the “I do’s” or knock over the wedding cake. So the best plan of action? Keep them entertained.

My favorite weddings to attend, now that I’m a parent, are the ones who consider the kiddos that are invited. And that’s exactly what this printable wedding activity book for kids will do! You can print and prepare these in less than an hour, and it takes minimal materials to put together a fun little pack of crayons or pencils for children to be able to color and do the activities in the book all evening long.

How to Make a Printable Wedding Activity Book for Kids

Before you follow our simple tutorial to create this printable wedding activity book for kids, please note the following!

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD ANY PORTION OF THIS BOOK BE DOWNLOADED AND SOLD FOR PROFIT. The content of the book is copyrighted intellectual property and offered solely here for free download and personal use exclusively.

We’ve encountered more than a few Etsy shops selling copies of our book, and the purpose of this activity book for kids is to be a free resource to you, to make things quick and easy for your wedding celebration. So please download for your personal use only.

Materials

  • computer and printer
  • white copy paper, or cardstock for a thicker book
  • scissors
  • baker’s twine
  • crayons or colored pencils (or you can use these crayon packs)

Step 1: Click here to download the PDF file for our printable wedding activity book for kids. The file will pop up in a new tab; save it to your computer to be able to print.

Step 2: To print, we recommend a test print first. The book prints best at about 90%, so once your print dialogue comes up to print, choose Print options, then under Scale, select 90% or “Fit to Page.”

Step 3: Note: the pages are not out of order. If you are printing at home, print out the page with the car on it first, then on the back of that same sheet, print the front cover of the booklet (ensuring that it doesn’t end up upside-down). Next, print out the page with the cake on it, and on the back of that same sheet, print out the tic-tac-toe page. Make as many double-sided copies of this as you need for all of the children who are attending your wedding or reception.

Step 4: Lay the sheets on top of each other in order, so that the cover of the booklet is on the bottom. Ensure that the edges are all aligned completely. Fold the sheets in half to create your book, making a crease down the center. Use the tip of your scissors (or a hole punch) to poke two holes through the pages right on the crease, about 3 inches apart.

Step 4: Cut a length of baker’s twine, string it through the two holes from the inside of the book toward the outside cover, and tie in a knot or bow on the outside. If you like, you can add embellishments like tassels, pompoms, or anything you like. It’s fun to have the color of the twine correspond with your wedding colors!

Step 5: All you have left to do is arrange for some crayons or colored pencils! You could bundle up small packs of crayons using the same color of baker’s twine, or just leave a big container of crayons or pencils in the center of a kids’ table for them to choose from.

That’s it! Make one of these for each of the kiddos that are attending your wedding and they’ll love it. Hope you use and enjoy our printable wedding activity book for kids during your special day! xoxo
