Tip of the Day: Entertain your youngest guests by setting up a kids' VIP lounge at your reception. Hire a babysitter to work on fun activities with them, such as an "I Spy" photo challenge for the older kids (provide a list of snapshots they must take) and coloring books for the younger ones. Provide kid-friendly coordinated seating (such as beanbag chairs or low couches) for a true "lounge" feel. Before you include video games, consider that most only allow two players at a time, so the other kids may get restless waiting for their turn. Instead, we'd recommend screening a group-pleasing movie.
