Lots of people love to camp. Get someone to host a camping trip for someone who has never camped before. The host should be ready supply all the equipment, just in case the new campers don't have everything needed.

Who does not love their kids art? Ask your teachers to have her kids do a special painting, drawing or collage. Mount each piece on matte board, or go all out and put each in a frame. Parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents will want to bid - either for themselves or to get the item as  the perfect Christmas gift for that loving relation. 

Do you have a separate parking lot for staff & teachers? See if there is an extra space available. Auction off a parking space for the year. You can even purchase a sign saying "Reserved for the Smith family."

Or check with your local sign maker as they might like to donate the sign. Your parents will love the idea of not having to wait in a line to drop off and pick up their children. 

Older kids love to attend parties. Why not get a group of kids to volunteer their time as "party help."  Depending on their age, the kids can do anything from help with preparations, serve at a party, or help with clean up. They can be used to help at a special family dinner or that grand annual party. Who knows - this might hired to help again. Have many kids that like the idea, no problem; Pearl Bids supports multiple winners on the same bidsheet with no additional entries.

For a 50-50 raffle, half the proceeds go to your school (or other charity) and half go to the raffle winner. Have volunteers circulate the room carrying baskets with balloons tied to them. Sell your raffle tickets individually or at a special discount
