5 Easter fundraisers for little chocoholics
Are you on the hunt for the best Easter fundraisers for your community? Then look no further. We’ve put together five of our favourite ideas for every bunny to enjoy, and don’t worry – we’ve added lots of egg-stra puns in there too. Let’s get cracking.
Easter: it’s what you bake it
Whether it’s cupcakes topped with mini eggs, a comforting carrot cake, or a big batch of hot cross buns, getting children and families involved in cooking up tasty treats is a tried and tested seasonal staple.
Add a competitive element by giving prizes for the best decorated cakes, and (once the kitchens are cleaned up) sell the baked goodies to earn a tasty fundraising pot.
Time for tea?
When the weather’s nice, there’s nothing better than getting out into the spring sunshine for a little picnic. Make it a treat for the kids by inviting the Easter Bunny to join you on the school fields. Sell snacks and cakes, teas and coffees, and invite families to play games. Speaking of games…
Egg and spoon race
Everyone knows the classic egg and spoon race, so we won’t teach you to suck eggs with this one. But here are a few ways you can put your own spin on it:
- Can’t get outside, or don’t want to deal with the cleanup? Swap out your regular eggs for chocolate ones. None of the mess, all of the fun.
- Make it a team game by holding an egg and spoon relay race – when one racer reaches the end of the track, they pass the egg to their teammate, who runs back the way they’ve come.
- If that’s not challenging enough for you, create a little obstacle course. Take care not to drop the eggs!
They say don’t put all your eggs in one basket, but you can serve up a little luxury by raffling off beautiful baskets full of Easter goodies. Get creative with some hampers of plush Easter Bunny toys, seasonal sweets and chocolates, and perhaps even a little tipple for the parents.
Remember, a beautiful presentation goes a long way. The best part is they’re so easy to put together, and the funds raised from a raffle will more than cover the costs.
We’re going on an egg hunt
Is it even Easter if you don’t hold an egg hunt?! Set one up around the school or take things out into nature, if the weather permits. You could even get your community involved by encouraging them to colour in Easter egg pictures and stick them in their windows for everyone to find and enjoy.
Wherever you hide your eggs, you’ll be helping children get their minds and bodies active, with delicious chocolate treats waiting for them at the end.
