I work for my local SPCA, and we have an annual fundraiser in the park. This year, we decided to add on a kids carnival. I jumped at the chance to help out with this. Boy was I in over my head. I had to think up games, design and make them. Here's what I came up with. (PS: Mods, I think this is where it goes! Sorry if it isn't!)

Take one board (and an eager to help doggie)


Have your wonderful dad cut out a circle


Paint a target pattern


Re-paint the target and touch it up. Then I took some dirt and split peas, put them in a poop bag and voila! You have the poop bag toss game.


2nd game was Find the Golden bone...


My coworker's dad is a genius and came up with this. They even stacked for easy travel!


Painted some milkbones (I forgot to take a picture of the golden one... it was full of sparkles.)


Finished!


3rd game was collar toss.


Painted, added some hooks and voila!


This happened the night before when I was testing it out... But luckily, it was fixed by nailing another piece of wood to the back.


And my favorite, Bean bag toss....
Faces drawn on by a friend


Cut out the mouths


Painted and added foam teeth to the rabbit and a felt tongue for the dog...


Made the bean bags out of felt and filled with split peas.

Bones for the dogs.


Cats get  the fish.


Rabbit gets the carrots.


Side view with the paw prints (all the games had this on the legs)


And a shout out to my little helper, Lola.


Thanks for looking!

Those are amazing! I've been trying to come up with some kid's games for our church's fall festival, and you just gave me so many ideas. Great Job! And Thanks!
