You may not be able to go to your local town's carnival this 4th of July so we are bringing the carnival to you! We picked three carnival games that are simple to set up and a TON of fun to play. Give out prizes and add in other games you love!
Putting together the board for the ring toss takes a little bit of time (download instructions here) but once it's set up you'll have it to play over and over again!
Water Squirt Game
Remember that carnival game where you squirt water at an object until it falls down and then you win a prize? You can recreate that at home. Just use a styrofoam block (or cardboard if that's all you have). Place golf tees in it with ping pong balls on top and use a water gun to squirt at the balls until they fall off. First one to knock one off gets a prize!
Ping Pong Toss
All you need is a board (poster, wood) or table and solo cups. Place 10 solo cups on a table or board and toss ping pong balls into the cups from a few feet away. Each cup can be worth a different number of points, or you can remove a cup each time you make it in.
