  • One year our principal agreed to sit inside a box with his arm stuck out and arm wrestled the little kids - of course he let them win - almost every time. They had the best time and each of them paid one ticket for a ribbon that said "I Beat My Principal" - those silly pin on ribbons were still seen on back packs at the end of the school year. It was for kids K-4th grade. They also loved the Reverse Pie Walk - there were 10 chairs - one chair had a red dot in the center of it - they walked round and round - when the music stopped ever who was in the red dot chair got to shove a pie at a teachers face who was in a chair in the middle of the circle. (course it was shaving cream - but they loved it). I think that game took in more tickets than any other.

  • If you have anyone who can face paint, kids love to have that done, all ages. You can usually pick up face paint and hair color pretty cheap, and its usually a big hit. Cake walks are good, and a good money raiser.
