Afternoon activity packs for toddlers

I am planning on doing activity packs for 2 youngsters during wedding breakfast. But I’m really stuck on ideas. One has just turned 2yo and the other is nearly 3yo. Iv got as far as a colouring book. Help?!

I had quite a few children of that age at my wedding. I got them all a magazine each. They usually come with some colouring pages, a toy, stickers etc. They loved it xx

Bottle of bubbles, and I did a photo treasure hunt by giving them a disposable camera and a list of wedding related things they had to take a photo of. Some were easy and some they had to look a bit harder for so it kept them occupied and then they had some photos to keep afterwards x

I had a Christmas wedding so had some jingle bells for the kids and they loved them, how about something like magnetic board and letters or Duplo blocks, not messy

I did bubbles (was one of the big ones that makes giant bubbles) and a small toy for 2 and under. Added a coloring book for over that age. You don't really need to much. One of them was my flowergirl so she had a small gift for being that to. Amongst our sweet table and it being summer and them being able to go outside it was enough.

I went to wilkos and b&m for stamps, little games or puzzles, bubbles, colouring book and crayons but what I will say is... get a soft play area. It's worth every penny x

We’ve done colouring books, stickers, jar of sweets and bubbles. Most of the children attending our wedding will also be 2-3 years xx

Bubbles!!! They’re perfect for adults and children. And also snacks- depending on your plans plans for the day of course.

I got light up balls from card factory, emoji splat ball (they loved them) cars for the boys all from the pound shops, slime, make your own bride and groom kits, go to Wilko’s pocket money you section they have fab stuff. Every child that came to our wedding thanked us for their bags and it definitely kept them busy during the breakfast and evening x

I bought cheap hetcher sketchers from eBay so they didn't draw over themselves or any where else. Then I put little jigsaw puzzles and a personalised teddy in aswell.

We had 15 kids at our wedding and put a variety of things in. Went and got cheap plastic toys like yoyo's etc that you'd find in party bags colouring book and pencils little pot of bubbles a little man with a parachute attached. Just make sure there's nothing noisy in it. We bought a huge bag of bits and I went through and removed all the noisy things

Stickers stickers stickers! Also bubbles and a little plastic animal toy or mini superhero. I would avoid pens with little kids and ladies in posh dresses! Therefore you can get the little mini doodle boards/etch a sketch things. Disposable camera depending on the age group.

Glow sticks. I done them as part of the activity packs at my sister's wedding and they loved them. Also put in animal masks, bubbles, colouring in books and friction type cars that you pull back

Sticker and colouring books should do the trick

I got Osbourne sticker books based on the interest of the child. Then you don't need colouring pencils
