We Done Good! Carnival for a Cause

Today a group of "moms" put on a backyard Carnival for a Cause.  The idea was to hold a backyard carnival (private by invite only) and collect as many donated school supplies as we could to go to help some local families in real need....what it turned out to be was so much more than that.....Enjoy!

Kids (and birds later on) Loved this popcorn stand...

Recognize this table scape setting from our Beach Birthday Bash a few weeks earlier?  
Reuse and Recycle! 

We had animal crackers set up here...

Food table...we did hot dogs, popcorn, snow cones and animal crackers...all finger food...

This was the entrance ticket book...kids dropped school supplies into the wagon (to the right, not pictured)

What we had for the kids....

A face painter

Photo booth

balloon animals

7 different carnival games

The children would play a game..collect a ticket and save the tickets
until the end for the prize table....

we allowed the children to come up by age to pick their prizes...started with the 
youngest 1st.

what we accomplished...

I can't begin to tell you how emotional I was when I saw all the supplies
that were donated! 

Above pictured were the ladies who helped out...1 mom was absent from the picture....

What an awesome day it was!  Thank you God for holding off the rain!
