Carnival Lion for the 2017 ThinkDIFFERENTLY Picnic

Elanor DeMan, a Roosevelt High School student and her father, Jayson DeMan created this fantastic ‘Carnival Lion’ as a bean bag toss game for August 2017 Annual ThinkDIFFERENTLY Picnic for children with special needs.

Ms. DeMan, put in a lot of thought into the design and its construction so that the game would be accessible for everyone to enjoy. The ‘Carnival Lion’ was a big hit both as a game of skill but also a popular place to take memorable ‘selfies’ for children and adults alike!

Thanks to Ms. DeMan this ‘Carnival Lion’ was also enjoyed at two more events; the City of Poughkeepsie Community Day and the Pleasant Valley Community Day!
