  • Find a pair
    draw or print animal faces, and hang them in different rooms, the child that finds the most wins.

    Tape the Trunk on the Elephant (or Give a Mouse a Peanut)
    Same rules as pin the tail on the donkey.

    Make your own top hats for the kids, so when they get there they can grab and wear.
    Animal crackers in the box that looks like a cage would be cute in a popcorn bag with toys or candy

    Pizza, Hot Dogs, Sloppy Joes, Waffles, Cupcakes in a cone, mini hamburgs and fries (baked, easier that way for bulk)

    you could use your childrens stuffed animals for decorations, banners with "worlds smallest hippo" "Yummiest birthday cake" you get the point lol. I could go on and on....sorry I'll stop now. Hope this helps.

  • You can have them decorate brown paper bags that you can fill with popcorn to hand out to the kids.

    You can have a fish game in either a plastic tub or a kid's pool. Fill it up with water, add plastic fish with painted numbers on the side. Attach a magnet and a weight to keep them at the bottom. Then get a dowel rod or stick and attach a string to the end and a magnet to the end of the string. They can go fishing and the number they get on the fish coorisponds with a prize.

    Get a cardboard office box with removeable lid. Cut a hole in the lid. Buy or make bean bags and have a bean bag toss. The person who gets the majority in the whole wins a prize.

    Get small containers and fill them half way with sand. Hide little toys in there and then have them go at it trying to find the toys by digging through the sand.

    You can have a pinata. You can make one yourself, they're easy enough.

  • As far as foods .. Think of things they'd have at a carnival or Fair. You can mock Elephant ears buy getting Pizza dough, cutting it up into small pieces, and frying it in a pot of oil. Then covering it in cinnamon sugar.

    You can have corn dogs with various dipping sauces. You can also make pigs in a blanket.

    You can have carmel apples.

    You can have a "Make your own Pizza" bar. I know that's not found at a fair/carnival, but it might be fun for the kids.
