Maybe special days sales like petetion for a "Jean day" or to sell things that you can get on Oriental Trader or maybe a "school store" and they could sell pencils, paper etc.
depends on the ages too. My son's K class did ice-cream for their bake sale last year and that was a super hit. With Mother's day coming up maybe fundraise through presents for mom and grandma (or any other special mom figure in your life)... like flowers or a stuffed animal etc.
My children's school does this for Christmas -- they set up a small store inside the school and the kids can purchase thnings for their families... they just send in a flyer b/f hand where parents can limit how much they can spend on who... great for teaching budgeting and money skills too... even the kindergartners.
