How to Get Your Children Involved in Your Wedding Day

Are you planning a wedding and looking for a way to get your kids involved?  If so, you have come to the right place.  Kids sometimes hesitate when it comes to weddings.  Many feel shy and even awkward being part of the party.  But with a little encouragement, they too can share one of the happiest days of your life.  Below are some tips that will get you started.  So if you’re in the middle of the wedding planning process, you just might want to take a few notes.

Let Them Help with The Planning

During the planning process, why not get the kids involved?  There are many ways that children can help.  For instance, while looking for wedding venues in Kent, why not let them pick out a location for you?  Most kids have a wonderful imagination and they will see the potential in a venue that you may have overlooked.  Additionally, kids love to help with menu planning and entertainment.  Involving them in these areas will make them very excited about the big day. Here you will find some tips to help you get your kids involved in your wedding day. These tips will give you some really wonderful ideas to get started.  

Ask Your Children to Walk You Down the Aisle

One of the biggest moments in any wedding is when the bride walks down the aisle.  So why not include your kids in this emotional moment?  By letting your kids walk you down the aisle, it will make them a big part of your special day. They will always remember this moment and think back on the day with fondness.  If your child is on the shy side, however, you may want to think of another way to make them a part of the wedding day.  

Let Them Help with The Décor

Children simply love making things with their own two hands.  There are many arts and crafts project that would be a perfect addition to your wedding décor.  Handmade place cards, wedding favours, and goodie bags are all great projects for your children to get involved in.  For older kids, you can even get them to design place settings for each reception table. Adult children can even help with the catering and other larger projects which will help reduce the overall cost of the wedding. This will not only help your children feel like they are part of the festivities but you will save some money as well.  For more DIY wedding décor ideas, have a look at this link.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
