Planning a school carnival or fundraiser? Use Crayola® Washable Sidewalk Paint to create a festive atmosphere, exciting games, and tons of fun for everyone!
Ask students to identify their favorite school fair or carnival games. Use Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils to make a list of these activities. After receiving permission from school administration to hold a school carnival, decide which activities to include in the event. One activity that might be included is a cakewalk, which is described here. In the early planning stages, students make sketches of each booth or game. Also brainstorm what students want to do with any profits that may be generated by this event.
As the planning process continues, ask students decide on carnival committees such as tickets, prizes, a cleanup crew, and other groups. Use Crayola Markers to design posters to advertise your event. Students may also design tickets for the event.
With administrative permission and after testing paint in a discrete area, use Crayola Sidewalk Paints to create a cakewalk. This is a circle marked with evenly spaced sections large enough for people to walk on. Each section contains either a number or a picture. Encourage students to draw pictures that illustrate the carnival’s theme in the catwalk.
Use the paint roller and Crayola So Big Brush in the kit to paint the cakewalk and other booths. Allow adequate time for paint to air-dry completely.
Using Crayola Scissors, have students cut small pieces of paper on which they will write each cakewalk number or picture. Store the papers in an unbreakable bowl.
When ready for the cakewalk, players each choose a section on which to stand. The caller begins to play music. While the music plays, participants move around the circle. When the music stops, the caller randomly chooses a slip of paper from the bowl, and the person who is on that section wins a cake.
Within two weeks of the carnival's close, sidewalk paint will need to be removed. Students wash the surface using the water pressure from a garden hose. Light brushing with a broom or nylon brush may be necessary to remove some paint.
