Carnivals are fun for kids and adults alike but that doesn’t mean that you’ll have access to one all year long. Here are some ways to make your own carnival! Be it for a birthday, an anniversary party or just because, you’re friends and family will love these fun ideas!
So simple and so fun!
Tin Can Toss
There is nothing more thrilling than being able to knock these cans down!
A Photo Booth
Who doesn’t love a photo booth? Add some dress up items like feather boas, paper mustaches and red clown noses for some extra fun.
Fill them with paint or water for added fun!
Animal crackers, lemonade, popcorn and cotton candy! You can buy all of it premade or rent the machines to make your own!
A Ticket Booth
Buy a huge roll of paper tickets or make your own and give everyone some when they enter your party!
If you’re event goes all day and into the evening, light up the night sky with some fireworks. (If there is a local ban on aerial fireworks, use sparklers instead!)
Jelly Bean Jar
Fill a jar with jellybeans and let your guests try and guess how many are in a jar!
Set up a carnival booth for face painting. This is sure to get everyone in the carnival spirit!
Set up empty two liter bottles, and throw tennis balls at the pins.
A sack race is a must at a carnival! Award a fun prize at the end!

Place ducks in a pool, one has a star on the bottom of it. The lucky one who picks the duck with the star gets a prize!
