My husband has an amazing imagination. Our daughter is 5 and we are all about having fun. We both work full time and live on a budget and some of the ideas he comes up with to occupy our time are amazing.

Yes this is #4 I am waiting for my husband to help me write #3. This Sunday was great we had the carnival come to our house!!! Well my husband and daughter built a Carnival in our basement. Shaun and Alyssa had Carnival music on and came out in funny mustaches and said “welcome to Shaun and Alyssa’s amazing carnival”. Then they lead us to the first game, the only game that was played upstairs. They set up Alyssa’s ducks on the side of the tub and had the tub filled with water.We had to take water guns and shoot the ducks until they got to the other side of the tub.

Then we headed to the basement. The next game was the only game Alyssa could not participate in. Each person got 6 darts and had to pop all 6 balloons. The person that popped the most balloons won.

The next game we played you had to knock all of the cups off of the table with a  ball. Alyssa of course got to stand a lot closer then we did.

The fourth game was called ring the bell. We had to hit the wood on one side with a hammer and the ball flies up and dings the bell. This game was the hardest but my husband built it out of scrap wood.

The bell was a bowl and it was a lot closer to the bottom for Alyssa.

The next game was called ring the long neck. It is based on the ring the bottle carnival game. This one was pretty hard too but so is the one at the carnival.

The next game was taped up to the ceiling. He took a piece of cardboard and cut holes into it that we had to throw a tennis ball through. Each hole was worth a certain number of points.

The last game we played you will probably not ever see at a carnival but it was fun. We each had a car and we had to blow it off the end of the table. If your car goes off of the side you are disqualified.

This Sunday Funday  was a blast and I would love to do this one again. It seems a little silly but everyone got into it. We were split up into 2 teams and the team with the most wins at the end was the winner. Most of items that were needed were purchased at the dollar store or made with cardboard and scrap wood. It is amazing what you can do with an imagination and not a lot of money!!!
