What a different summer this is shaping out to be.
Some call it Quarantine Summer or COVID Summer or maybe even, Stay-At-Home Summer.
We live in California, and are highly encouraged to stay home during this time. Being quarantined at home has been extremely tough to keep myself, my husband, and the kids happy and sane!
Can anyone relate?!
IT HAS BEEN TOUGH.
One of the toughest things that we have come to realize is that there are a lot of things that are not going to be the same this summer.
Like our family summer traditions.
For us, it is missing the county fair. My husband grew up going to the Minnesota State Fair and I grew up going to the Orange County Fair in Southern California. Now that we have family of our own, we love to carry this tradition.
Since we are unable to attend a local fair this summer, we decided to surprise our daughter with a backyard carnival!
It obviously will be the same as going to the actual fair, but we are creating fun memories together as a family.
That is what counts, right?
Parents, this is also for you!
We are all struggling in different ways during this time. I want you to know that no matter what your days may look like, do not compare it with others. Know that as long as your family is healthy and thriving…
YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB.
Parents, we are all in this together.
This is why I want to share these free printables for you and your family. I want you to know that these DIYs can be very easy, but also a lot of fun to create!
Let’s get to the FREE PRINTABLES for your fun carnival!

We did not spend a dime!
My husband is always pleased about this. LOL.
We did not buy anything extra for this Backyard Carnival surprise. We used what we had at home. We even recycled old cans of beans and bottles of Kombucha for the games! (See my Instagram Highlights for more!)

This paper is not too thick, but also not too thin!
