Step right up to your own home carnival! Enjoy four hands-on STEAM, sensory, and gross- and fine-motor activities as you walk the imaginary midway together. Craft a cute little Elephant Trumpet puppet, then announce the start of the carnival with its noisemaker trunk; create a chemical reaction and watch the Crazy Corn kernels hop and pop around the fairgrounds; test your aim with the Fishbowl Toss as you decorate your cups, fill them with water, and try to land the ping pong ball in the cup with the fish; and “spin” your own Cotton Candy Creation, then color your confectionery craft with the included pipette.
