You may look into this guide if you want inexpensive carnival game ideas that are easy to make, fun, and easy to win.
Choose a duck
The contestant will have to select a rubber duck from the pool in this game. Then, they will have to turn it over and see a dot. If there is a dot, then they win a price.
To make this game, you will only need some rubber ducks, a permanent marker of different colors, a plastic swimming pool, and water. To set the game, you will have to fill the plastic swimming pool with water, mark ducks with different colored dots, and wait for it to dry. Once the marker has dried, put them in the water.
Different colored dots determine the type of prize the contestant will win. For example, a blue dot means you win a stuffed toy, or a black dot indicates you win candy.
Pop the Balloon
To make this game, you will need some balloons, darts, pins, small cards, and a wall to arrange the balloons. The first step is to consider how you want to set the balloons. The easiest way is to arrange the balloon in rows, but you can place them to form various images based on the event’s theme. For example, if you are organizing this event for a fall event, you can arrange to balloon to depict a pumpkin.
The next step is to write the prizes on the index card and pin the card to the wall. Then place the balloon over each index card.
The participants must throw the darts and try to pop the balloon to play. If they pop a balloon, you can look into the index card and reveal what they won.
Find the Ball
This is one of the simplest games to make. You will need three plastic cups and a small ball to play the game. Randomly arrange the cups and ask the player to tap the cup they believe the ball is. Then, lift the cup of their choice. If the ball is in it, the player wins the prize. So, make these inexpensive carnival game ideas that are easy to make, fun, and easy to win.
