Plans for the future. Buy prizes when shops reduce the price of the goods of the festive seasons. You can get bubbles, balls, chalk and other small toys for 90 percent less if you buy them one to two weeks after each celebration. Pharmacies like CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid often lower prices in these sweets. Buyer of these sweets buys them close to the date of the backyard carnival to ensure no rancid. Buy them with a simple envelope. You do not want to have a sweet Christmas packing with a carnival in July.
Make the backyard carnival, in the home of a friend or a family member or a park to avoid paying a rental fee. Have a space available as a reserve in case there is bad weather. Many apartments allow tenants to use a ballroom or a clubhouse for a small surcharge.

If the party is for young children make a backyard carnival ticket or a wheel of fortune with construction paper. Older children may enjoy receiving invitations to be printed on small pieces of paper and placed inside balloons; to read the balloon should burst. Or buy paper bags with red and white stripes and enter the time, date and location of the party on them.
