These decorative directions and arrows for guests can simply be made out of cardboards, colorful markers or letters, image stickers, and glue.
Other things you need to do include preparing a separate area for foods; set lots of carnival games, which include bursting of balloons with guns, fishing in the pond, throwing the hoop etc.; make a roll of balloon around the entrance arch; welcome the guests on stilts or clown cloth; get tattoos, face masks, or face painting for all kids, exchange all tickets for prizes and give the quests the option to choose their Prizes; if possibly arrange for some swings; and finally, never end your carnival party without cutting of the carnival cake.
