These could be sold in the parking lot or to families ... order now, deliver when made.

The aluminum storm door off the kitchen gets really hot in the afternoon sun. I made a cover for hanging outside the door out of one of those reflective sheets we put behind the front window of the car. Sew strips of flat elastic diagonally across the edges to loop over the corners of the door. It looks funny to the neighbors, but really cuts the heat in the kitchen.

I also made covers for my cars side windows out of the same stuff. Draw the pattern of the window on newspaper. Cut that shape out of the reflective sheet and sew fabric on the back. It slides over the open door like a pillowcase. The door shuts on the fabric. To keep someone from working it out of the locked door, sew a little fabric bag (with some beans inside) onto the fabric side. I made them for the drivers side, but turn them inside out and they will do for the passenger side. --Stone

You could make fudge, toffee, cakes and sell them, have a book stall, guess how many sweets are in the jar, or guess the teddies name, always popular at school fetes.

Do you have a local Pizza Hut? They have fundraising nights, we just did one last nite for our 5th graders and raised close to $300. Our Pizza Hut will let us do one every other month on a Monday or Wednesday nite, they provide the flyers (one annoucing the nite and the second one that includes the coupon that needs to be turned in when you pay.) We made 20% off of each order (dine in or carry-out). We did them last year and they were a huge hit. Last nite our new principal and his family were even there. The kids love it because they see their friends. A lot of teachers showed up. I have a 4th grader and a pre-K kid and they couldn't wait to to go to see who would be there. Ask the store manager and they should have a number for you to call to set it up. Our manager has been wonderful and even told me that they had been trying to get the school down there for so long. It's been a great success for us!!!

We have bake sales, yard sales, just have all moms bake some goods and have everyone going on the field trip to bring yard sale items. Make a Saturday of it. My sister in law is a Home Interior dealer. They have candle brochures that really sell well. Avon also does well. Just find a representative in your area and ask about their fundraisers.

Have a penny drive. Everyone donates pennies. Make it a competition between the classes to see which class can raise the most money. Of course if someone wants to donate dimes or dollars all donations are accepted.

When I was a child, the Boy Scouts used to have a Bob a Job Week. They would do all kinds of small and bigger jobs for at least a shilling. You could offer your services to everyone, maybe targeting the elderly and ill. Someone to pick up in the yard, mow the lawn, run errands, the little things that may be difficult for them to do. Do raise your price; a shilling won't go far nowadays! God Luck!

For Valentines you could sell coco capachinos rootbeer float and ETC but the saying you could use is "Do you need something for your honey well buy something sweet for their Tummy!"
for a 1.50 and it can sell really good!
