As you might already know – we love kids at weddings! The littlest guests are usually the first to get on the dance floor, enticed by the flashing lights and loud music, and are often some of the most enthusiastic dancers. If you’re expecting quite a few kids at your wedding, let us know – we’d love to plan a few kid-centred activities just for your tiny guests. Typically, kids songs and games are great for early in the night, when the kids are going strong and the older guests are still more interested in mingling than they are dancing. Here are a few ways to keep the kids entertained on the dance floor.
Songs like the Chicken Dance, the Macarena, the Cha-Cha Slide, and other similar ‘participation’ songs work well for getting kids involved and entertained. Hey, pretty much any song can turn into a participation dance when you direct a big group of kids to start a conga line! Usually, when all of the kids start dancing to a participation song, adults make their way to the dance floor – both to get photos, and to get in on the fun.
We have a variety of games that we can use to get your kids contingent laughing and enjoying themselves on the dance floor – let us know if you’d like us to prepare a few of them for your wedding! A couple simple and inexpensive prizes such as candy or crayons can help get kids excited to play, but aren’t entirely necessary. Even a simple ‘freeze’ game played with an upbeat song is usually enough to get kids pretty excited.
Have you seen what happens when you play “Let it Go” from Frozen when there are little girls in the room? It takes almost no convincing – they usually start singing along without any cues. There are plenty of songs that work to get kids (and adults) singing their heart out on the dance floor! A good old-fashioned singalong to a movie song or a popular tune is a great way to get kids smiling – plus, the cute factor is pretty high too.
If you’d like to hear about more ways that we can involve the kids attending your wedding, get in touch – we’d love to help plan a party thats tons of fun for your guests of all ages!
