Carnival Birthday Party

For the past few years my sister and I have done one big family party for our kids.  We have found it easier to do 1 party instead of 4.  The kids love it and we have a lot of fun putting it together.

This year we did a carnival party.  She came up a few days early and we locked ourselves in my craftroom and had some fun!

Here was our sign pointing to the way for their gifts.  I downloaded a free font and then chalked in their names.

I had a piece of scrapbook paper with numbers on it so we just circled the kids ages and framed it.  My sister made the super cute cupcake toppers!  I can't remember which cartridge I used for the mini banner.

We have circus peanuts, cotton candy, and animal crackers in the buckets.

 In one of my pads of paper we had this piece of paper.  So we put a spinner on it and my sister came up with a simple game that the kids loved!  In each jar there is something fun.  The kiss jar has Hershey Kisses but in the love one, for example, there are activities like "hug the next person you see."  In fun we put some funny things for the kids to do like "high five everyone for five minutes."  The kids really loved this activity and we got a kick out of watching them enjoy something so simple.

Photo booth before we moved it to a place where it wouldn't blow around.

You saw this banner in my old post!

Popcorn bar and drinks.  We had some fun toppings on the table like M&Ms, chocolate chips and then all the sprinkle stuff... lots more too.

Ring toss onto IBC bottles
 We used glow bracelets for ring toss

 These bowls are for the bean bag toss

Each kid had a laundry basket labeled for their gifts.
