My son's annual school fundraiser has come around again and I am coordinating all the class projects. Each class produces an item to be auctioned off at the Silent Auction. I have a running list of ideas (which I will happily compile & share here at a later date), but I'd adore some more ideas! The projects should be things that kids from Kindergarten through 5th grade could produce with the assistance of a parent volunteer or two. A few ideas I've seen before are...
Decoupage fun class photo as well as group and individual candids onto a small chest or memory box. Can paint the item with sayings from each student, or use favorite cartoon characters, animals, fairies, etc.
Hand-painted serving items like decanters, glasses, serving tray, tableclothes and matching napkins.
Painted outdoor canvas or Adirondack chairs, dog house, or garden bench.
Hand-painted/decoupaged furniture – buy unfinished chests, bookcases, small tables, child’s rocking chair. Class paints item in a theme (i.e., fish, sports) and signs in some way (i.e., each fish has the child’s name or decoupage a photo of the child on the fish).
Decorate and fill an LLBean canvas bag. Decorate with hand or footprints of children, have each child sign their name (in pencil, you go over in black fabric paint), then fill the bag with summer (or winter) fun stuff, videos, backpack, etc.
Please share with me your ideas or any great links you may have! Thanks!
