Circus Carnival Birthday

Circus Carnival Birthday

The Invitation.......

Every invitation had tickets for each member of the family receiving the invitation.  

The Decorations.......

Popcorn box, tissue paper, noise makers, and die cuts.  The noise makers I just stuck on some skewers.  The clown and the word circus are also on skewers but I sliced the top of the skewer so I could just slide the paper in.  The flying popcorn and balloon are on thin pieces of wire.

Ferris wheel from ebay - just spray painted it red.  The train car I got from Hobby Lobby.  I painted that myself, it comes plain.  The animals came already painted with the train car.  The unicyclist I found at the dollar store.

No circus carnival birthday is complete without a barker!

I drew him.

Then rolled up some red poster board for his mega phone.
Need a ticket booth

The Games.......

Each game had these cups on a table next to them so people knew how many tickets were needed to play the game.  The kids were given bags to collect their prizes in.  I put a handful of tickets in each bag.

Ring Toss!  Saved bottles from a case of root beer, covered the box in wrapping paper, and bought the rings online.

Gold Fish Toss, less the gold fish.

Strong Arm and Whack-a-Mole combined!

Penny Pitch
Duck Pond.  Bought the ducks online.  The prize for this game was the circus rubber ducks.  I failed to get a picture of them.

Was planning to set up the games outside but the weather did not cooperate.  So we had to set up in the garage.  Not the look I was aiming for but we made do.  Made the signs myself.  Just printed the words/letters then cut and pasted them on white foam board from the dollar store.

Photo Booth!  This was SO much fun!  Everyone had such a great time with this!

The Prizes.......

For the Gold Fish Toss game.

For the Strong Arm game.

We had face painting, popcorn machine, and calliope music playing.  It was so much fun!
