    Cake sales? Children love eating cakes (and would probably enjoy helping to make them as well) and they always seem to go down well :)

    make your own play-dough and sell in plastic containers (for the parents to play with obviously! lol!)

    organise a "sponsored bounce", if you have a fairly local bouncy castle hire company, you could try and get in touch with them, explain you are doing some fun-raising and could they perhaps spare a bouncy castle for a day (they generally dont use them much in the week) then organise the children into groups of 4 or 5 and get them into some kind of rota, and get each child to get sponsors. We did it once when i was in school and i remember it being sponsored per 5 if each child was scheduled for 20mins broken up through the day you could raise quite a bit of dosh. Plus kids love bouncy may be wise to do the majority of the bouncing before dinner time, to keep cleaning bills down

    Thanks again folks. Some great ideas coming through. The sponsored bounce sounds really interesting!
