Carnival birthday party: made ball toss game by cutting holes in a thin tall box. Added paint and a cute character to hold the "balloons". I used a few of my kids ball pit balls to toss. Easy, cheap. #carnivalgame #balltoss
The Family Olympics is a highlight of the week. Events, including a doughnut-eating contest, encourage friendly competition and mingling, and help break the ice among cousins who might not see one another very often.
