Junior Creative Corner

My project (5)

Seeking Junior Entrepreneurs!

We are inviting all junior artists, painters, dreamers, entrepreneurs, chefs, bakers, seamstresses, story tellers, poets, woodworkers, photographers, comedians, and more! This year, at our Family Fun Fair, we are planning to host a shaded area/tent for children, ages 4-18, to set up a table and sell their crafts and services.  Children will be able to set up a table in this space for free, all that is needed is they register for the space by July 1st. Space is extremely limited.

Here are some quick ideas on goods, crafts, services to spark creativity:
  • Handmade Jewelry
  • Calligraphy items, sketches (paint/pencil/charcoal/watercolor) (made on the spot or brought to fair)
  • Wood Crafts
  • Foraged Items
  • Ceramics/pottery
  • Make your own (craft kits to make and take at the fair)
  • Crocheted, cross stitch, quilted, sewn, knitted items
  • Finger paintings
  • Crafts
  • Photography
  • Baked Goods
  • Snacks/Drinks for people to enjoy at the fair
  • Services like offering a car wash/detail, lawncare, cleaning houses (offsite)
  • Services like fanning, a chair to put up fairgoers' feet, etc.
  • Upcycled Art
  • Talents like storytelling, dancing, or singing, either printed or shared at the fair, poetry, books, etc.
Some tips on having your child host a successful booth:
  • Make sure they have everything they need and a wagon to cart it into the fairgrounds
    • Table(s), chair(s), signage, other 'fluff' like tablecloths, and if needed, mirrors for your customers to see what they are purchasing on, microphone and speaker, etc.
  • Consider something to 'drive' customers to your table - Free fruit? Water station? A place for fairgoers to sit and rest?
  • A money box, calculator, and small change
  • Google some other ideas on running successful booths at craft fairs.
  • GET CREATIVE... there are so many possibilities for kids to expand their ideas and sell what they really enjoy.
