Halloween Party Ideas?

My class is organizing a Spring Break, and we are trying to earn some money for the trip. So, the problem is that, this year, other classes had the idea of planning the traditional Halloween party at the school. Typically it was supposed to be our party, the party we do every year since 2007, but they talked to the principal first. However, we are thinking about doing a deal with them.


They take care of the food and drinks and maybe the "Halloween Catwalk", the best mask, etc. and we could be responsible for the entrance (who goes to the party pays 1 euro or 50 cents and receives a bracelet that glows in the dark). We should have some games like "wheel of fortune" (the younger students would like that, I guess). What ideas do you suggest guys? Thank you!

Here are my best ideas: with the help of an adult, collect items from local businesses, such as items or gift certificates. (Be sure to write "no cash value" on all gift certificates) and raffle them off. The only thing you need to spend money on are raffle tickets. Check with the school secretary to see if there is a form you can give the donors that will enable them to use their donation as a tax deduction.


At the raffle have a poster thanking the donors. Tell them you will post them as a donor because they will like the publicity. People to ask are: restaurants/ fast food , grocery stores (in my area they will give $25 twice a year per school), hairdressers/barbers, nail salons, car wash, auto repair ( for an oil change), gyms ( free month gym membership), hotels ( will give you a free room for 1 night), movie theater, florists, and any other businesses you can think of.

It's shocking how generous they are. Then sort the items/ certs into categories and do multiple give always. More people win and your class steals the show. For example give away a dinner, movie, and hotel room as a "romantic get away". Give lunch, grocery cert, and haircut as "a day on the town".


If you can't pull this together, have everyone in your class donate a bag or two of individually wrapped candy. This way no one person is out a lot of money. Use some class fund money to buy little prize toys at the dollar store or oriental traders. Set up a basketball hoop and sell chances to make it through the hoop. Like three chances. If they make one they get one piece of candy. Two shots, two candies. All three, they get a toy.

Kids become addicted to this. It was a top money maker at out festival. Be sure to have your most enthusiastic people run this booth. Have them cheer and clap for the young kids. Have older people stand farther away than the little ones to make it challenging. Again, little money out, lots of money in.

My last idea is if you still need money, sell valentines in February. Get permission soon so no one else steals your idea. Also figure out how and when they will be delivered. You will have to know where the recipients are at the time of delivery. Just print them from clip art that's free on the internet. Have designs that are for friends, romance, secret admirer etc.


Again have everyone donate individually wrapped candy to give with the valentine. You could also give a flower if you can get a good deal on them and it's not too much trouble.
Good luck and have fun!
