Some people believe that nowadays' children are only interested in video games or other games related with technology. This is not true. Children love fairgrounds. The bright flashing lights, music, and of course the exciting rides and games to play! If the fair has not come to town, then this book will provide your children hours of fun making exciting games for their own fairground.
As the introduction of the book says : "All the fun of the fair brings the colour and excitement of the fairground to your fingertips. There are toys, games, and models to make; ideas for face painting, dressing-up and decorations; a traditional recipe for gingerbread and three board games to play on the actual pages of the book.
These projects are easy to make from cheap, everyday materials and have clear step-by-step words and pictures for you to follow. A section at the front of the book describes some of the tools and methods used for making the projects; and the back has designs and numbers which you might like to use as patterns for decorating the things you have made.
The games have rules which tell you how many people can play the game as well as how to play it. Some you can play on your own; others need two or more players. Or you cold get together with some of your friends to make the projects and then have a fairground party with games, decorations, fancy dress, food and prizes!"

I have found a very interesting article, written in 2008, about fairgrounds communities, especially about children who live in them. Would you like to read it ? Click here!
