1) Ice Cream Taste Test and Decoration:
Have your pre-schoolers pay about $5 each to participate in an ice cream taste test. They will get to choose 5 flavors to try. The child who guesses the most correct flavors can receive an extra prize, as well. In addition, let them choose their favorite flavor and decorate it to their heart’s content, with gummies, sprinkles and other candy. Try and get your ice cream and other supplies sponsored by a local store.
2) Custom Calendars:
Kids love to draw, and this is a great way to encourage them to get creative. Have your students work on drawings of their favorite things, or other custom themes. You can then scan the drawings and compile them into a calendar featuring a new drawing each month.
Parents and other family members will love the opportunity to hang their child’s drawing on their wall along with everyone else’s creations.
3) Toy Sale:
Kids lose interest in their toys quickly, so why not consider selling old and unused toys as a fundraiser? Parents can donate old toys that their child doesn’t use anymore, and you can hold a sale at the pre-school.
Pick a day to have your sale and invite parents so they can pick up a new/used toy for their child. This is a quick and easy fundraiser that can be done in a day. Better yet, it promotes reusing old goods that could otherwise go to waste.
4) Bake Sale:
Who doesn’t love baked goods? A bake sale is a simple and delicious way to raise funds in a short amount of time. Have parents donate any type of sweet treat to include in your sale.
To make selling easier you can post pictures on social media and even take orders online. Having good quality images will entice your supporters and make selling even easier! Time your bake sale for when they are picking up their children or co-ordinate it with another daycare event.
5) Family Craft Night:
Invite families to attend a special craft night at your daycare. Tap into some of the parents’ talents and ask them to lead a few separate craft workshops such as building a kite, birdhouse, paper airplane designs, paintings, making tie-dye shirts, etc.
Simply charge an entry fee and have the craft leader and materials ready for participants. This is a great activity for families to have some fun and spend time together.
