Junior Creative Corner

My project (5)

Registration Closed

This year, at our Family Fun Fair, we are hosting a shaded area for children, ages 4-18, to set up a table and sell their crafts and services.  Registration is closed.

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.
