ThinkFun produces a wonderful collection of games and puzzles. It is possible to run a math circle, or part of a mathematics festival by just sitting out a collection of these games and puzzles.

An alternate idea is to make a life-size version of one or more of the puzzles. For example
the student below is explaining a life-size version the River Crossing puzzle to a group of students.
