Make Your Own Carnival Games!

We used Hoola Hoops to mark starting postions
this was an awesome game that was relatively easy to make. Just cut craft Pumpkins (I found these at Michaels) in half or quarters. Glue them to a board with other decorations using E6000 and use bean bags to toss.
This was a game I forgot to get a picture of there were gutters attached to a fence with a small bucket below whoever filled their bucket first won.
The kids played tons of games we made a bean bag toss game to knock down cans

A spider throw game the spiders are made of tin foil and pipe cleaners. Thread string through a box  and toss spiders.
The kids loved this game.
Pirate hats and bean bags.
Another bean bag toss into pirate hats
We had big boxes for climbing inside
And an obstacle coarse

A bat throw game the bats are made from tennis balls wrapped in trash bags cut like candy wrappers they turned out super cute.
A touchie feelie game

Think of gross names and things that might feel like that item.

And a No Hands marshmallow eating contest

Coin toss- there are clear plastic cups glued to styrofoam plates
And fishing for pumpkins paper clips best at the end of the fishing pole to fish out the pumpkins

Picture 510Gutters with end caps attached, rubber duckies and straws to blow your duckies to the other side. Make sure you have lots of straws.

Picture 507Water guns and ping pong balls. We had a huge bucket filled with water so that the kids could easily refill. A big piece of foam with golf tees stuck inside. Balance pingpongs on top of the golf tees and use the squirt guns to shoot the ping pong balls off!
