Circus Carnival Birthday
Every invitation had tickets for each member of the family receiving the invitation.
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
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!
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!
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!
