We created a carnival and our kids loved it!
We have partnered with the blog Mommy Over 35 and they will be reviewing and writing about their experiences with Awesome Entertainment from a parents’ perspective.
This was the weekend we had been planning for! We finally created our backyard carnival for the kiddos 7 and 5. While it was extremely hot (90 plus degrees), we had an amazing amount of fun with some traditional carnival-style skill games.
The games we set-up were Over and Under, Zap Maze Game, Sticky Darts (and yes they actually stick!), Stand-up the Bottle Game, and Alien Teeth Knockout. The games were age-appropriate and even us adults had fun challenges ourselves! (Not to mention, a little competition is always a lot of fun.) It was especially nice having something to do together rather than the normal Saturday pizza and a movie night.
In case you are not familiar with these games, here are some pictures from this weekend to help you visualize. Most of the games I have either seen or played before at a fair, but I honestly never knew the names. As soon as I saw them, the "bells" went off. Ha!
Our backyard truly did have a carnival vibe. The team at Awesome Entertainment even included prizes which made the challenge of the games even more exciting. It's amazing how much joy comes from "winning" a stuffed teddy bear or giant stuffed snake.
We topped off the evening with Pucker Powder...better known to parents as pixie sticks. The Pucker Powder Dispenser was super easy to use and clean up was a breeze. Not to mention the tart sugary candy hit the spot:)
Overall, we would rate our backyard carnival a success! We all had an AWESOME time together and by the end of the evening, we were all exhausted and went to bed on time. lol The kids are already asking me when we can do that again!
