Carnival Themes seem to be popular. You can have them indoors or outdoors too.

Some easy ideas:

Fishing Pond for the little ones : small plastic pool, fish cut from fun foam and attach a magnet to one side of it. On the other side of the fish, write a number. The kids will "fish" using a long stick with string attached as the fishing line and a magnet at the end of it. Float the fish magnet side up and let each child catcha a fish!

For prizes, Use the numbers 1-5 on the fish Number 5 bags 1-5. In each bag have an small prizes such as #1 bag has candy bars, #2 bag had mini coloring books, #3 bag has drink boxes......keep in mind the gifts have to be safe for the little ones to play with.
