Do-it-yourself Carnival Games Some ideas

0 like 0 dislike
Are you throwing a carnival party and need carnival games ideas?

Traditional carnival games are generally played at carnival booths. You always exchange one or more tickets for a change at a game. Samples of carnival games booths range from the Duck Pond game, Hoopla, Toss the Ball, Knock the Can and of course, the Coconut Shy. If you should be hosting a Carnival Party, you are able to hire games booths, or on top of that make your own. To make a simple carnival game booth regarding carnival signs, you'll need a small table, a material big enough to drape on the table (brightly colored if possible), a large bit of card and some paints or thick marker pens.

You simply drape the cloth over the table, letting it hang down the leading of the table to the ground. Making use of your paints, or marker pens, write out a fun sign, stating the name of the game- you may be really creative here! Finally attach the sign to the cloth and there you have it- your very own homemade carnival game booth. In the event that you genuinely wish to look authentic, buy some cheap, narrow, plastic piping (available from hardware stores), cut into lengths to make a rectangular frame for the booth (you'll need one long one, just a tiny bit more than your table length, and two shorter ones (decide how high you want the frame to be).

Use strong tape to bind the items of tubing together to form a three sided rectangle, then affix to the table, again securing with strong tape. You are able to hang a lightweight sign out of this, but be considered a little careful- the frame won't tolerate too much weight. You can buy ready made games to use on your own booths if you wish. However, you may make your own. Keep food cans, and rinse these out and dry off. Cover these cans with colorful paper and use to stack up for the Knock the Can game. Add a few bean bags- and your game is able to play. To play, the guest throws the bean bags, one at a time, at the cans. Should they knock most of the cans over, they win. For the Coconut Shy, you will have to purchase a few fresh coconuts. To make the stands for the coconuts, use empty soda bottles which have been rinsed out and dried. Cut the tops off the bottles and cover them with colorful paper. Place the bottles on the top of the table booth, spaced well apart, and put the coconuts on the top of bottles. Have three small balls, or bean bags, per turn, and you're ready to play.

To play, the party guest tosses the bean bags, or balls, one at time, at the coconuts. Should they knock one off, they win. Toss the Ball is an easy game to make. Cover a waste paper basket with brightly colored paper, put it at the back of the booth, or on the ground. Place a marker a good distance away from the basket. That is where in fact the party guests will stand to take their turns. Use any ball you like- as an example a basketball or perhaps a baseball- it must fit into the goal waste paper basket. To have a turn, the guest stands on the marker and throws the ball. When it switches into the basket and stays there, they win. You have two main choices for prizes. Either give your guests tickets once they win a game title, that they exchange for a prize at the end. Or, provide a small prize at the booth to each winner. Have some fun!
