Need help with Wedding Activity Books please!

I want to make an activity book for the kids at the wedding. There will be a lot and I know how boring weddings can be for children, especially ones that are too shy to dance. I have a general layout with puzzles, coloring pages and draw your own picture pages. I finished one today and I dont really like it... Here is a picture of the front page 
I have three issues with it
1. there are bubbles in the front and back cover bc i glued regular printer paper to construction paper. (first dumb mistake)
2. the coloring pages and puzzles are visible through the printer paper 
3. Kevin thinks there too much ribbon but I had to cover up the staples....

I dont know what to do... Kevin thinks I should just scrap the whole thing but I really want to do something nice for the kids. I know if I went to a wedding when I was younger and I had an activity book made just for me, waiting at my seat, I would feel really special. I know if I changed the paper it would solve 2 of my 3 problems but I dont know what kind to use. Any suggestions? Have any of you ladies made your own activity books? Please help! I want to prove Kevin wrong lol

    I'm too lazy, I'd rather just go to the dollar store and buy a few disney coloring books or something. :) and, anyways, it's your wedding... the children's parents should find things to keep their kid entertained... ;)

    instead of glue, get the elmer's glue tape (comes in a rolly thing like white out).

    You may want to get heavier stock paper for the cover.  And I wouldn't worry about the staplers.

    THe ELmer's stuff is the best.  My mom actually found it...and I've used it on every paper product for the wedding...including the invitations.  If you have trouble finding it...PM me.
