Let Them Clown Around
For activities, pin the tail on the donkey is a classic game that fits right in with the circus theme. Face painting is another carnival-like activity that little ones love. All you need are a face painting kit (usually less than $15) and an artistic friend or two to man the station. Provide red foam noses for those who want a clown face. If the event is outside, a water balloon toss is sure to give your guests a laugh.
