They’re your cousins, and your family wouldn’t be the same without them. And because our cousins are so special, they even get their own holiday! Mark your calendars: Cousins Day is coming up on July 24!

Celebrate your sweet family connection by sending your coz a scrumptious little treat. Whether they live right around the corner or all the way across the globe, sending them a cookie greeting in the mail is the perfect way to show your cousin how much you love them.

The Best Games to Play at Your Carnival Party

June 6, 2013
Carnival Fancy Cookie Gift Box

Carnival Fancy Cookie Gift BoxStep right up, step right up! For a kid, a sunny summer day just isn’t complete without some fun carnival games. But why waste time driving to a faraway festival when you can bring the boardwalk to your own backyard? In celebration of Cheryl’s new carnival-themed cookies, we put together a list of the best games you and your kids can play at your next carnival party. So come one, come all and enjoy the most exciting fair in town!

Cookie-Eating Contest

Give the classic pie-eating contest a sweet little spin and use cookies instead. Stack Cheryl’s carnival cookies high up toward the sky and see who can eat the most in one sitting. With irresistible summer flavors like cotton candy, orange citrus and double chocolate, this race will definitely be a close call!

Bean Bag Toss or Baseball Throw

Test your pitching skills with a tossing game—DIY style. Making everyone’s favorite summertime game set is easy and cheap: Just grab a spare wooden or plastic board, cut out a few large holes, decorate it and assign numbers to each hole. Then lean it up against the fence and take turns throwing baseballs or bean-filled bags to rack up points.

Balloon Darts

Your carnival party crowd will be popping with excitement when they see your homespun balloon dart board. Hang up a large corkboard panel on the fence or stand it up in the grass. Then, completely cover it with air-filled water balloons. Hand your guests five darts and tell them to take their aim: Whoever pops three balloons wins a prize!

The Fish Bowl Game

One of the trickiest—yet most addictive—carnival games, the Fish Bowl Game will be a raging hit with your guests, young and old alike. Line up 10-20 small fishbowls close together in rows on a table. Give your festival-goers a bag of pennies or Ping-Pong balls, and sit back and watch while they tirelessly try to land them in the fish bowls one by one.

Ring Toss

A carnival party can’t get any more authentic than a good ol’ game of ring toss! To get in on some traditional fun, fill up a plastic crate with rows of empty, upright glass bottles. (Make sure the long bottle necks stick out high above the rim of the crate.) Hand the kiddos a bunch of colorful plastic rings and enjoy their laughter as they compete to see who can loop the most rings around the bottles.

How Many Jelly Beans?

The ultimate carnival guessing game is also the easiest to recreate at home. Fill up a large jar to the rim with jelly beans, seal it and place it on a table for all to see. Have everyone guesstimate how many beans are in the jar, and reward the closest guess with a prize. Bonus: Once the game is over, everyone can dig into the delicious jelly beans!

The Duck Pond

Carnival party guests will have a quack-tastic time fishing for prizes! Grab about 50 rubber ducks (the weighted kind float best), label the bottom of each duck with the name of a toy, and attach a hook to the top of each duck’s head. Fill a small plastic kiddy pool with water, toss in the ducks and have the little ones cast a line and try to nab the biggest prize.

What other kinds of fun food and activities will you have at your kids’ next carnival party?

These mini Bacon Salad Singles from Celebrations.com are delicious, and they’re made for you to eat by hand—no forks necessary! (Oh, and the bacon is definitely a plus!) Just roll them up, individually cover them in plastic wrap, and hand them out to everyone at the picnic as a fuss-free appetizer.

Main Course

Avocado and Tomato Finger Sandwiches

Keeping the bite-sized theme going, why not pack a variety of tiny, separately wrapped sandwiches as the main event of your picnic? Your family and friends will love being able to sample all the different flavors of these scrumptious finger sandwich recipes from the pros at Celebrations.com. But they aren’t just fun and easy to eat; they’re also really simple to make ahead of time, so you can spend less time prepping in the kitchen and more time soaking up the sun!

When your Easter cookies arrive at your doorstep, we bet you’ll be excited to serve them at your Easter celebration on Sunday. So, we put together a cute and festive way to use your favorite cookies for the perfect dessert table. 

First, you will need a box (or two) of our adorable Frosted Easter Cutouts. Next, you’ll need to take a trip to your local grocery store or drugstore and make your way to the holiday aisle where you’ll find a variety of Easter celebration goodies and decorations.

Image

We used:

  • Mini springtime Easter egg boxes
  • Easter egg tray
  • PEEPS®
  • Easter grass
  • A basket
  • Plastic Easter eggs

Take the mini boxes and fill them with the Easter grass, then place a cookie and a PEEPS® on top. If you have any cookies left over, you can place them in the middle of your Easter egg tray and fill the rest with the plastic eggs (or real ones). Put all of the mini boxes in the basket and when your guests are ready for dessert, you can start to hand out your favorite Cheryl’s cookies
