Forever Young Birthday Carnival

Eat, drink, and be silly--because you're always the right age to have a happy childhood.




Menu Ideas

This fun-loving carnival menu offers classic corn dogs washed down with creamy root beer floats. For dessert, win big smiles with cupcakes baked in ice cream cones and frozen chocolate-dipped bananas. You can go back to eating healthy tomorrow.


Game On!

Rock a carnival vibe with a few simple games and prizes.  (Arrange ahead of time for volunteers to help.) Here are some ideas to get you started:

Extreme Croquet--Set up an obstacle course (get creative but have simple options for younger players). Players earn rewards based on the number of strokes needed to complete the course.

My Aim is True--Throw three out of five softballs, beanbags, or footballs through a swinging, hanging hoop for a win.

Ring Toss--Get three out of five rings around an object to win.

Guess Work--Guess how many jellybeans (or objects of your choice) are in a jar. Record the guesses. At the end of the party, the closest number wins.
