Carnival Booth Ideas ~ Fishing Booth: Children choose a fishing pole and swing the "hook" over the screen. Volunteers hidden behind the screen clip on a prize and then give the line a few tugs. Children "reel in" their prize by pulling their line back over the screen. Helpful Hint: Make sure their poles and lines are not too long - they only need to be 2 - 3 feet in length. Practice with a few children of different ages to see what works best.
Spray Away Game ~ Kids get to "spray-away" a ping-pong ball off a golf tee with spray from a water gun. Cover a strip of foam board with paper and insert golf tees. Set up ping pong balls and let the fun begin :)
Decorating for a Carnival Party Games, balloons, and bright colors -- a carnival is just like a birthday party, but better! So why not invite kids to a carnival-themed party in your backyard or at a local park?
