Make it something simple, but useful like these handmade heart magnets for the fridge by Red Ted Art.
Or these fabulous heart shaped bath bombs from The Suburban Mom that any mom would love to get from her favorite Valentine.
Another way to raise classroom money is to purchase foam hearts and turn them into magnets. Buy a bunch of colored Sharpies too, Then, sell the hearts for $1 each and let the purchaser write an uplifting saying for their favorite teacher, parent, or friend.
These days you can’t have a homemade bake sale. That’s a bummer. However, the kids can still get crafty and create homemade cupcake pics for the store bought variety. These photo
pics are fun. Imagine if they were the school principal or a favorite teacher.
A unique idea for a classroom fundraiser is an escape room! Do a Valentine’s day theme escape room. The entire class can help design and layout the room. It makes a great lesson too! They move around with a table or phone and QR codes.
Have a teacher raffle! Who hasn’t had a crush on their teacher? Offer a teacher up for raffle. The winner gets to spend a lunch date at a special table with their favorite teacher. Be sure to dress up the table with nice linens, battery powered candles for ambiance, and a vase of red roses.
