In-school holiday shops are a perfect event to shake up a dreary school day before winter break. Everyone tends to have one thing on their minds before the holidays, so a school Christmas shop is a no-brainer activity to help students practice key skills without even realizing it. When elementary students visit their in-school store, they practice money management and budgeting as well as independent decision-making and important social skills, like taking turns and checking out.
Secret Santa stores and in-school holiday stores like these don’t need to take a lot of set up. While it’s true that some student holiday stores require teachers and volunteers to plan, order, and arrange individual items, My Holiday Fair does all of the hard work ahead of time. All volunteers need to do is open each box and the school Christmas store or Mothers and Fathers’ Day store is set up!
Another option schools, PTO’s, and Parent’s Clubs have is to use an elementary school store as an easy school fundraiser. Everyone is looking for a better, more effective way to raise funds for their school. Why not build a fundraiser into a fun, educational event that benefits the students? If you’re thinking of running a school gift shop anyway, think about making our student holiday shop your annual Christmas fundraiser. Students still get to shop and buys gifts for their family at low costs, and the school or PTA keeps a small percentage of the profit. This means that a simple elementary school holiday fundraiser will be one less thing you need to plan this year!
