HWTM 4th of July Carnival Games

Since we already covered lots of 4th of July party food & drinks… let’s talk activities! These 4th of July County Fair Games are from our “All-American County Fair” 4th of July Party for Hebrew National.

Inspired by the classic fair games, we crafted a homemade Ring Toss, Balloon Darts and Gunny Sack Race… and even made some “semi-diy” Award Ribbons using store-bought ribbons & party circles! All of the printables you see are available for free download right HERE!

(And to see the rest of the party printables in action go here.) Scroll down to have some fun!!
