  • If you could find a way to make carnival games age appropriate that would be really cool. Maybe a bean bag toss, ring toss, that rubber duck turn over game with the numbers on the bottoms of the ducks. You could give tickets away for "winning" the games and have a prize table where kids could exchange their tickets for small toys and candy.

    You should definitely either rent a clown or have someone dress up as a clown to put on a performance.  And you could have face painting. 

    Cotton candy would also be a great idea. 


    I was in Hobby Lobby recently and they had a bunch of carnival type decorations, and I think a lot of them would work very well for a circus party.  

    Please pass the ice cream.
  • My SIL decorated a simple layer cake with white icing and jelly beans.  She then put animal crackers around the outside of the cake.  Her daughter, loved eating the animal crackers more than her cake. 
  • I've seen a ton of great Circus themed birthday parties on party planning blogs.  I've linked a couple below to start.  The second one, even has some free downloadable cake toppers and invites.
