School Craft Fair

What Is A School Craft Fair?

A school craft fair is a craft show where students can showcase their crafts, typically to parents and relatives in a single event. School craft fairs are held on school grounds – in a sports hall, or outside. Parents and relatives visit the event and view arts and crafts at various stands. These events can be hosted by elementary, middle and high schools.

 

Why Do Schools Run Craft Fairs?

Schools run craft fairs for a variety of reasons. Firstly, and most importantly, it is a great way for students to gain recognition for their skills and talents. Also, it teaches students organisational skills, allows them to interact with their community, enhances their confidence, and allows the school to improve its profile locally. Additionally, school craft shows afford many schools an opportunity to fundraise by selling items to the attendees, holding raffles, simply asking for donations, and selling the crafts themselves – of course!

 

What Items Do Students Display At Craft Fairs?

Quite frankly, anything which is considered an art or craft could be displayed at a school craft fair. Of course, one of the primary determining factors is the age of the students. Elementary school students could showcase anything from painted rocks, bead creations, to Popsicle stick crafts. Middle and high school students may demonstrate much more refined and advances pieces – art, woodwork, jewellery, glasswork, knitting, embroidery etc. At all levels the aim of the activity is to have fun.

What Resources Are Available For School Craft Fairs

If you are looking for ideas for your upcoming school craft fair, I find that Pinterest is undeniably the best website to visit. Why? Quite simply you can browse through thousands and thousands of ideas very quickly. Additionally Pins are invariably linked to the source website so you don’t have to trawl through search engine results. A picture really is worth a thousand words.

 

Are There Other Items I Can Sell?

Additionally there are numerous companies which offer personalised items for sale – perfect for school craft fairs. You can sell items such as hats, shirts, mugs, pens, and calendars with school logo’s. These services are really useful as they can provide a predictable return with little investment. Additionally, if you don’t sell out, many items can be held in storage until the next event.

 

Is There An Online School Craft Fair?

Yes. http://school-craft-fair.com was recently launched for this very purpose. It is a place where schools can raise funds by selling crafts online. It operates just like any other school craft fair. You can create a store for your school and advertise them for sale. The site includes social media capabilities to make sharing your store with alumni very easy.

Unique High School Fundraising Ideas

I’ve been searching the web for unique high school fundraisers, but many of them don’t appear to be very novel. This is why I have set up school-craft-fair.com

This vision behind school-craft-fair.com is very simple.

Selling arts and crafts online to raise money for your school.

We all know about etsy, ebay, amazon handmade etc. The craft movement has exploded. So, with so many creative and brilliant students in our schools, why not leverage your talents to raise funds for your own school. Don’t have a one day school craft fair, have a year-round online craft show. You’re making the crafts anyway if you have woodworking, pottery, ceramic or art activities in your school. You may even be throwing some of these creations out at the end of the year.
