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.
Sticky Tic Tac Toe from Frugal Fun for Boys
Candy Corn Ring Toss from JDaniel4’s Mom
Dart-less Balloon Pop Game from Carnival Savers. If you have some woodworking skills, this is a really cool game idea! Kids throw bean bags, not darts. The bean bags push the balloons into a tack at the back of the frame and pop the balloon.
Glow in the Dark Ring Toss from Momma Did It. Now that looks like fun!
Falling Leaves Cup Knock-Down from JDaniel4’s Mom. Anything that involves knocking down is a win in our book!
