    Face painting
    Balloon art 
    Wear a costume
    Interactive games
    Crafts for kids
    Exhibits to display
    Hands-On Activities – Learning by Participating

One creative example from a past festival: An insurance company had a small pool filled with water and little rubber duckies allowing kids to “fish” out a prize making their booth was fun and interactive.
