the party - part three...

Ok here are a few more bits and bobs of the circus party.
Some simple games for the kids that were fun to make, and easy to play for tiny arms. Coin toss were just the chocolate coins in foil and little plastic hoops thrown from a 1m to try and catch some cash......watch for tiny ones smelling the chocolate through the foil though - we found a few teeth marks in the loot afterwards!
The winning tickets were given to the kids to hold onto until the end - better than chocolate and lollies being consumed during the party. 
The ring of fire was literally this - except for the real flames of course.
I decorated a bouncing ball as a lion and kids lined up and tried to throw the lion through the ring of fire.
The prize table was off limits during the party (for obvious reasons). This was situated besides the duck fishing game so we could use the kids playpen as a barrier from sneaky hands for both temptations!


It's all about the colour! 
Just by groupings of lollies in bowls, 100's and thousand's on cupcakes, popcorn, colourful tablecloths and cups make the theme seem bigger than it actually is. You don't have to spend a fortune, just a few homemade games, balloons and streamers around the house - all come together to make a carnival of fun!

The circus party looks like it was a lot of work, but I think it paid off because everything looks awesome!
