  4. 4. Carnival Basics More stuff means more money. Offer a variety of booths and activities attractive for all ages. Once you have a theme, let it guide your booth and entertainment choices. Good publicity and signage drives attendance. Start spreading the word 4-6 weeks before your event. At the carnival, hang brightly colored signs identifying booths and concessions stands. (Kids can help make them.) Prominently recognize sponsors on banners and signs. Share the work and have more fun! Create subcommittees with a chair responsible for key teams. Use SignUp.com for simple volunteer scheduling and parent signups! Ticket Sales Concessions Rentals Sponsorships Publicity Booths Raffle or Auction Music and Entertainment Setup/Cleanup Choose a theme to tie the carnival together. Your carnival can be planned around any theme, for example: The Circus Beach Party Future/Outer Space Hollywood Mardi Gras Sports Fiesta SignUp.com the EASIEST way to bring people together!

  6. 6. Where should we hold our carnival? You can hold your carnival anywhere that is safe and has enough room. Either indoors or outdoors Any area that's safe for kids In a space that is big enough to fit all your booths and activities A backyard A big garage A church or school A playground Need Permission? Need Permits? Plan ahead!! Our school holds a carnival every year. The kids, teachers, and parents, all look forward to it. It’s such a fun way for our families to spend time together while raising money. -- Parent, Campbell, CA SignUp.com the EASIEST way to bring people together!
  7. 7. How can we turn our carnival into a fundraiser? • Sell Tickets! Offer tickets for sale in the weeks before the carnival at a discount. This builds interest in your event while earning a base of funds. Avoid cash handling at all the activity booths and concessions stands by having a few designated ticket booths. Set a ticket price (# tickets) for each booth or food item. • Sell student designed t-shirts, community recipe/cookbooks, arts and crafts, etc. • Keep costs down. Ask local businesses to donate food or supplies. Purchase inexpensive prizes for the games at party stores. • Add a bake sale or cake decorating contest. • Hold a silent auction or raffle. Include themed baskets where each class parent donates one small item for a collectively generous basket. Possible themes: Family Games, Backyard Fun, Cook’s Delight, Gardener Goodies, Puzzles, Arts & Crafts, Pampering, Slumber Party, Water Fun Don’t forget to give recognition and send a “Thank You” note to those businesses that helped! SignUp.com the EASIEST way to bring people together!
  8. 8. What else can we do besides games? A carnival isn't complete without at least a few good shows. Feature your community talent and charge tickets for admission. Some ideas: Magic Show Puppet Show Talent Contest Skateboard Freestyle Demo Dance Performances Short Play Choral Groups Local Bands Art Show Ask teachers and staff to support the talent show by allowing students to practice during lunch period or after school.

  12. 12. Creative Carnival Game Ideas Potty Toss Players try to toss toilet tissue rolls through toilet seats hung from the ceiling. Each seat is marked with a different point value. Human Slot Machine Setup three large refrigerator boxes in a row & cut out a large window in the front of each. When a player pulls an imaginary lever, a volunteer standing in each box tosses possible wax fruits (orange, banana, apple) up and down, finally picking one. Three in a row wins! Dinosaur Dig/ Treasure Dig Players dig in shallow boxes of sand for plastic “dino” eggs. Each egg contains a slip of paper with a number. Players can redeem the prize assigned to the number found on their paper. Pirate variation: hide chocolate gold coins & trinkets and players dig for buried treasure. End of the Rainbow Draw a rainbow in chalk on an outdoor surface. At the end of rainbow place a miniature pot (or fake cauldron). Players try to flip pennies into the pot from a designated point. Prizes increase depending on the number of pennies the player tosses into the pot. Quack Shack A costumed volunteer pretends to be a mad scientist and decorates the kids with fake scars and wounds.

  14. 14. Spreading the Word Having a big turnout is key for your Carnival fun-raiser! Getting people to show up takes planning and effort. Fliers. Hand out information about your carnival at school or congregation and to everyone you know. Include the date, time, location, what kinds of things you’ll have at your carnival, and a list of sponsors. Newspapers, newsletters and local websites. Ask your local newspaper, congregation, or school newsletter to run a free announcement about your carnival. Posters and Banners. Make colorful signs that tell people about your carnival. Tell the date, time, location and all the things you’ll have: “Games! Prizes! Food! Entertainment! Silent Auction! etc.” The more posters you put up on telephone poles, at school and at nearby businesses, the better. Word of mouth. Tell all your friends and their parents.

  15. 15. Food and Drinks • Popcorn • Snow-cones / snow balls • Hot dogs/hamburgers • Cotton candy • Soft Drinks & Italian Soda • Peanuts • Cookies • Candies • Pretzels • Churros or Doughnuts • Trail mix • Fruit • Caramel or candy apples • Ice cream/ Italian Ice Many local restaurants and businesses will donate food in exchange for sponsored publicity. SignUp.com the EASIEST way to bring people together!
  16. 16. Tips for a Successful Carnival • Print maps of your carnival space. • Share the fun! Give each class or group the responsibility of planning and staffing a specific booth. That team should consider decorations, setup, cleanup, and prizes. • Have plenty of lined garbage cans and a trash team to keep them ready. Set the trash cans back away from your serving area to avoid flies or odors. • Price your tickets so a typical family can have a lot of fun and enjoy multiple activities. Give discounts to people who buy 20 tickets at once, or pre-order. Consider selling fixed-priced wristbands if your carnival is more of a community-builder than a fundraiser. Wristbands are simpler than tickets, but typically not as profitable for the carnival. • Offer both substantial food and treats. Hungry carnival goers appreciate something filling like pizza or hot dogs in addition to candy and popcorn. • Give out prizes right away at each game booth, or kids can collect ‘point tickets’ redeemable at a prize booth. • Ask yourself, “Can everybody play this game?” You may have people come to your carnival who use crutches , wheelchairs. or have less strength in their arms and hands. • Set aside a safe, shaded area for babies and toddlers to crawl and play without having big kids around. A few gym mats, some baby toys, a fence of some kind, and chairs for parents could be all that you need. • Cash Sense. Keep cash-handling locations to a minimum and staffed with two or more people. Have locked cash boxes on hand, and a process for moving and storing large sums of money. Many banks and supermarkets provide an auction and carnival service and can help with your cash process.
