A wedding celebrates the union of two people, traditionally with the help and support of family and friends. Couples who have children or who come from extended families with children seek ways to incorporate children into the big day. Use safe, easy wedding crafts to make kids feel part of the wedding planning process.

According to Idea Ribbon, a special event supply company, favour bags are a traditional way to present wedding favours. Dress up traditional organza or silk favour bags with different colour ribbons. As a child's craft project, place the bags, candy and pre-cut ribbons on a table in neat, separate piles. Show the children how much candy to put into each bag and how to fashion a bow with the ribbon on the top of each bag. Offer ribbons in different colours that complement the wedding colours. Allow the children to select which ribbons to use and encourage diversity.
Thank You Notes
Thank you notes or tags frequently accompany wedding favours. Some wedding supply companies, such as Sayido, offer pre-printed thank you note tags. Save money by purchasing blank note tags along with markers and ribbon in various colours that complement the wedding colours. If necessary, use a hole puncher to create one hole at the end of each tag. Some note tags are sold with holes. For children in elementary school or higher, using the markers to write the words "Thank You" on each tag helps them practice their handwriting. Thread a ribbon through each tag and tie it to the selected favour or favour packaging. Children too young to read can help select which ribbon goes with which card, an activity that reinforces colour recognition.
Many couples choose to have store-bought or custom-made stickers emblazoned with their initials or logo. Online retailers such as Bliss Weddings Market offer stickers of various shapes and sizes that can be customised with words, phrases and graphics. Children can help by placing the stickers onto the appropriate items carefully and in the right direction.
