Have little guests roam in room of their own.

Antsy kids won't sit still for a minute, let alone an entire wedding reception. Give them space to play in a separate kids' room where they can gather after the meal -- with an adult or two there to supervise. That way, they can happily make all the noise they want. Fill the space with age-appropriate toys, games, and craft supplies. You might also consider hiring a performer, such as a clown, magician, or storyteller, to keep their attention.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!

This is very interesting and useful. Yeah like you said kids can be very annoying on ceremonies with adults. It's just boring to them and they want some place when they want to play and be theirself. I'll keep this in mind when I'll be organizing my ceremony soon. Thanks for sharing! Best regards, Matt PS3 emulator gaming ePS3e developer.
