How to create a Kid's Craft Fair   How to create a Kid's Craft Fair
People love to buy items at fêtes and fairs that are handmade and everyone loves to get creative so why not combine the two and get children to create some lovely crafts, poster artwork and bakes - in the classroom or at home - that can be used at your next fundraising event.

It's a great way to promote the positive values of charity and giving to children whilst they're doing something they love. Encouraging them to lend a hand alongside a parent or volunteer to sell their wares at an event, will nurture a sense of achievement and pride when they see the benefits and value their contribution has made to a school, group or charity.

Kid's Craft Stall
People tend to buy practical things they can use in the home, so here are some suggestions on the type of products that tend to be popular and sell more readily. Also consider the latest crazes and themes and recommend the kids decorate products accordingly to improve sales.
Kid's Craft Stall PORCELAIN - Mugs, photo frames, tealight candle holders, money boxes, flower pots, coasters etc.
Kid's Craft Stall WOOD - Photo frames, jewellery trees, bird houses, gift boxes etc.
Kid's Craft Stall FABRIC - Tie-dye, t-shirts and bags.
  Create crafts to match your organisation's theme e.g. Animal Charity - make and design animal themed products.

Make and design products to reflect the season like summer and winter and occasions such as Easter and Christmas.

Make 'n' Take
Buy or use any existing or donated beads, charms, cords, split metal rings etc. for kids and adults to sit and make on the stall, and then take home. Suggested charge could be £1 or more according to the quality of the make and cost of materials.
Kid's Craft Stall From our experience, having a volunteer crafter demonstrating at this stall will increase interest and sales enormously.
Kid's Craft Stall Trestle tables and benches encourage all ages to sit and participate in a group activity. Decorate tables with our colourful plastic splash covers.
Kid's Craft Stall Ensure you put all beads and components in plastic tubs, glass jars or other containers to prevent them escaping on to the floor and to look visually appealing. Use small inexpensive trays to store the beads whilst making.

Craft Fair Poster
Get children to create colourful, eye-catching advertising posters and programmes for your event in the classroom or at home and make it into a competition. Individually handcrafted programmes are much more appealing than the standard printed variety. Remember to tip off the local press by sending a poster and programme about your kids craft event to get free advertising, which will encourage the public to attend.
