If you want to create your own fun poster for a school's fall carnival, all you need is a bit of imagination and, of course, a good graphics program to create professional looking designs for your posters that are sure to impress carnival goers, young and old. A good program to use for this purpose is Adobe Photoshop. If you don't have access to Photoshop, a great freeware alternative is GIMP.
Get Kids Involved
A great way to get students interested in their school's upcoming fall carnival is to get them involved in helping to design the posters for the activities that will be apart of the carnival. You might even create a contest that picks a poster design for each grade your school teaches. You can also take several student drawings into a graphics program to create a montage of student's interpretations of the types of fun activities that will be available at their fall carnival.
Get Parents Involved
Having parents get involved with your school's fall carnival can mean having them help their children design posters. If you're parents are involved in helping you decorate for the carnival, a possible poster theme can be showing parents and students at work creating that years fall carnival booths or helping to design costumes or other items for the festivities. Create a caption that tells everyone that that year's carnival preparation is underway and it promises to be a lot of fun for all.
Using Graphics and Fonts
Another idea for a fall carnival project is to create is to use images you find online including photos of a booth selling candyfloss or using clip art related to carnivals. You may even want to use public domain images and clip art as a type of border with big bold text in the middle of your poster beckoning attendance of all to attend the annual fall carnival. You can even use clip art of a scroll at the top and bottom of you text. Remember to select an appropriate font design. In the case of the last example a font style like "French Script MT" might be a good match. Remember to tailor your design to the age group of participants.
