So now that the fair is over for the year, how can one make their own fun until next season? By the way, this is assuming everything went smoothly and there wasn’t any extra clean up (which I will talk about tomorrow).
Make Your Own Fair!
What I love to do for my kids birthday or any family gathering is to try and create our own sort of fair to keep everyone entertained. Obviously I don’t mean to go crazy and spend thousands of dollars on games and pony rides, but if your kids are young enough you can do a ton of little things to bring the excitement of a fair right to your own home!
One of my favorite things to do is allow my kids to come up with their own unique “fair food” for the day. I keep my kids on a pretty strict and healthy diet for the most part, so allowing them a few days out of the year to go crazy is enough to make their day. Not to mention their friends who come over are in disbelief when they see a mom allowing them to eat fried Twinkies and Oreos 🙂
In addition to the food, my husband is great at building our own carnival games for kids and make sure the prizes are something that the kids love.
For any parents out there needing some birthday ideas for their kids, creating your own sort of state fair at your house is something that will always get them excited 🙂 If you need some specific examples check out some of these Pinterest ideas.
Stay tuned tomorrow when I will get back to some stories of when everything didn’t go quite so smoothly once Springfest was over.
