Re: Fellow Histonetters and colleagues in the Field

From:Sharon Sharon

Do a simple carnival.  Have facepainting, balloon animals, dress up areas, local
firetruck and firemen with costumes/gear to try on, police(same thing), milkcan
ball toss, donut on a string to bite, (if Halloween time, paint small pumpkins
with acrylics), throw darts at balloons to pop for prizes, wet sponge toss,
large oblong horse tank with water then a rope dividing middle lengthwise for
lanes( w people compete by blowing  ping pong balls with a straw down their lane
from one end to other) beanbag toss into large cutout clown with holes located
in body, etc.  Have centralized ticketseller for these.  This is a really fun
situation to do and you can get all kinds of people involved plus donations from
parents, local businesses, etc.  Let your imagination go.  I have done this with
the public elementary school, church, 4-H, etc.  Oh, a live petting "zoo" of
simple farm animals(goats, ducks, baby pigs, etc.) depending upon where you
reside.  This item may cost for there are people who do this for a living.
