Special moment for blended families ideas?

Planning a second wedding for both my fiancé and I. We both have two kids from our first marriages and would like to have some type of special moment or recognition to involve the kids in the ceremony. Aside from the idea of putting the sand in the jar, any other ideas? Ceremony is outside on the beach so doing some type of candle wouldn’t be feasible. They are aged 10 to 16, so feel like them being older makes a difference. Would love suggestion from others in similar circumstances or maybe what you’ve seen as a guest!

    When my dad and stepmom got married we had a family prayer. I think it’s nice but simple.

    With them being older, I think you should solicit their opinions, including if they want to participate in the ceremony. Both of my parents remarried when I was an adolescent and I would have loved to have been asked for input on something that directly involved me.

    Hi. We are also a blended family. We have 7 kids though. We are doing a puzzle that has everyone’s name on it. After the wedding I plan to glue all the pieces down and use it for decoration. Got it off Etsy. I paid less than $100 for it. They come in all kinda of various sizes.
