    Default Christmas Crafts & Fundraising Ideas

    The club I run at my college is a bit.. drained for ideas and input, so I am in dire need of some help.

    I need neat, but relatively simple craft ideas for kids in relation to Christmas.
    The best I've found so far is paper bag reindeer . Most other things are too involved, too complicated, or quite corny.
    Hoping for something between all of the Mommas and eccentric folk that I know are here

    Otherwise, we are going to have a fundraiser for some art/writing related charity. Most fundraisers at my college are bake sales. Some have started to involve Zumba. I was thinking of including Tarot Reading in my fundraising event, but really want some ideas about what people have seen for fundraising or what any of you think might be cool.

    I use to make gnomes out of felt growing up i wish i could find a pattern my mom would give us the polyfil we'd pick the felt she'd sew most of it and we'd stuff them (this was one we were like 5 and 6) though for a large group of kids that might be more work than it's worth i kinda like the wooden peg ones.

    Than we'd go get moss from the back yard, and rocks, snail shells, cool looking twigs ect make a gnome garden. I still have mine and would add to it perodically

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Still very cute ideas . lol I keep some of them in mind because I really do love crafty things, but there are so many I just wouldn't do with a group of kids. Stow away in my own cave and do them myself .
    Definitely making some adapted elves, even if it's just for my own holiday spirit.
    Thanks! Reminded me of makeshift snowglobes, which might be a cool plan.

    This is an awesome question. I'm quessing all age ranges, and I just asked the people hosting it for an approx on how many usually attend each year. They switched their event from a "Harvest Fest" to "Breakfast with Santa" so it may be more than previous years.

    Well, a good one is always graham cracker gingerbread houses. You buy paper plates, candy like gum drops M&Ms or red-hots, maybe those frosting gel tubes, and graham crackers and make up the white frosting ahead of time. Just make sure you make the right type, so that it will harden kind of like glue rather than stay moist.

    Otherwise I'd say some type of Christmas tree ornament where there's lots of stuff they can glue onto it. You want something that is labor-intensive for the child, with room for some creativity to account for an age range, and not a lot of work for you ahead of time or supervision during the activity. If there are a lot of kids, you're not gonna have a lot of time to devote to each kid, so you want the activity to be self-directed for the most part. I like those tongue depressor ones that @YWIR posted.

    Are you looking for things kids can make and you then can sell?
