The age-old question of how to keep a child entertained is one that continues to pose challenges in the event planning industry. However, there are several creative options that suit a variety of events!
One common idea used to entertain children at events is to set up a craft table. There are many options when creating a craft table. One idea is to gather all the necessary materials for a specific craft and put them in a goodie bag. That way, the children have all the supplies organized and sorted before starting their craft. An even easier way to set up a craft table would be to purchase a butcher paper roll, lay it on a table, and provide crayons. This big, blank canvas can provide children with hours of entertainment!
If you have the space available, consider setting up a movie room! This will help keep kids entertained with minimal disruption to the adults enjoying the event. Another option is to set up a game room. Depending on the ages of the children, you could include toddler toys, board games, or even activities such as ping-pong or air hockey tables!
With the beautiful Florida weather, many events in the area are held outdoors. Consider providing outdoor lawn games such as ring toss, corn hole, or giant tic-tac-toe. Not only will these games help to keep the young ones entertained, but they are also becoming a popular trend amongst weddings for adults to enjoy as well!
Photo booths are another current trend in the event industry. These are a great way to entertain both children and adults, giving them something to do during downtime. Make your photo booth extra fun by making it themed according to your event or by providing props for people to pose with. Not only will people have a blast while using the photo booth, but it is also a great way to provide party favors!
