So as the President of the Parents Association at my son's school - I am in charge of planning the annual summer picnic. This year I decided to go with a carnival theme & I think we'll go this route going forward! It was so much fun! Even if we were forced to have it inside as it POURED outside and we didn't get the moonwalk, the kids had a ball! I got the best ideas from Parents Magazine! A couple of years ago they had a big spread on a carnival themed kids birthday party. I also found the photo board idea on Family Fun & my VERY talented sister drew & painted this for us!
