Get 'yer tickets here! No backyard carnival would be complete without a ticket booth for all the attractions. Who knew that all it takes to spruce up a backyard carnival is a little creativity and a cardboard refrigerator box.
After the booth is built, guests can help man the booth.
Cut a door in the box's back and a ticket seller's window in the front, providing a dowel (set into holes in the box's sides) to hold the rolls of tickets.
After priming and painting the booth, place the booth so that as guests arrive, a host could greet visitors from within, give them their tickets, and receive any birthday gifts.
