Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday for children, and it provides schools with an opportunity to involve and inspire kids while helping the school raise a little much needed money. Most people are going to spend money on Valentine’s Day, and they should support their local schools at the same time. This article will provide you with several Valentine’s Day fundraiser ideas for schools.
Chocolates, cakes, and other assorted sweets are a Valentine’s Day trademark, and a bake sale is the perfect fundraiser for a school during Valentine’s Day. Parents can work with children at home to bake delicious treats and create Valentine’s Day packaging for them. Candies, cupcakes, and chocolates can be packaged in boxes that have been hand painted with hearts. This fundraiser idea is a great way for schools to involve children and parents in Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day is a day of gift giving, and a craft fair is a school fundraiser that is a perfect place for people to buy gifts for those they love on Valentine’s Day. Craft fairs can be held right in the school, and they are a great way to help and involve the community, artists, and the schools. A Valentine’s Day craft fair is also a way to provide people with handmade gifts that are much more personal than what they would get at a local chain store.
Children love to craft, and they can make wonderful heartfelt valentines that the school can sell as a fundraising event. Making valentines can be incorporated into several different types of lesson plans and age groups, and the created valentines can be sold to the community for Valentine’s Day. These cards are a great way to involve the children in the holiday well helping raise funds for educational purposes.
Valentine’s Day Recital
A fun way to teach and inspire children while helping raise money for the school is a Valentine’s Day recital. This fundraiser can be in the form of a play like Romeo and Juliet, or it can be a dance or music recital. No matter what type of recital the school decides to put on they should make sure to use donated and recycled items as props and costumes. Schools should charge a standard admission fee, and this fundraiser idea will be fun for children, schools, and the community.
Tissue Paper Roses
Tissue Paper Roses are another fun item that can be made and sold by children, and they are great for gift giving on Valentine’s Day. For this project children can work together at school or at home to make simple tissue paper flowers and roses. For this project green floral tape, tissue paper, and pipe cleaners are needed. Simply cut out pieces of tissue paper and gather them together to make petals. Tape them to one side of the pipe cleaner and add some green tissue paper along the stem for leaves. Student can offer to deliver and give messages with the flowers, or they can be sold as is. This is a fun project for Valentine’s Day, and it is a great fundraiser idea for schools on this holiday.
Fundraisers help our children get the education they need, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to help raise funds for local schools. I hope these ideas will inspire you to help organize a fundraiser for your local school this Valentine’s Day.
