Ping Pong Ball Toss Game (and several more carnival games) from Mamas Like Me. Some super fun ideas here!

Apple Basket Toss Game (no link). We set up this simple game with supplies from Michael’s. The apples are fake apples from the floral department. The boys thought this was so fun! If you’re giving tickets at your carnival, you could label the baskets 1, 2, or 3 tickets. Our boys just had fun trying to get a high score with five tosses.
