UltimateMama enjoys helping with group class projects that are auctioned off to raise money for the school.

UltimateMama has a few creative group project ideas for your tots:

– Photo Puzzle – Take a class photo and convert it to a puzzle through any photo service.  Some photo services allow you to make “chunky” puzzles which may be easier for your toddler’s hands.  Also, you may be able to customize the puzzle by superimposing the school logo over the puzzle.

– Caricatures – If one of the parents in your class happens to be a caricature artist you may be in luck to do such a project!  The parent can do individual caricatures of the children and then the project can be framed and hung.

– Painted Toy Chest – Purchase a bare wood toy chest at a bare furniture store.  Paint the toy chest a cream color or something neutral. Have the teacher or parent helper paint each child’s hand or foot a primary or fun color (red, blue, yellow, etc.) and have the kids put their HAND or FEET
prints on the toy chest.  Use a permanent pen or paint pen and write each student’s names under their prints.

– Platter – Purchase a plain white ceramic platter (or serving dish or plate) and have the kids decorate it with paint and put their names underneath their little “paint marks”.  Many “paint your own pottery or plastercraft” stores will be able to help you out – and you may get a discount if you mention it is for a school fundraiser!

Photo calendar of the class.  Use an online photo center such as Shutterfly or Kodak and create a photo calendar of the school year.  Have all parents send in their favorite school-related pictures from the year!

UltimateMama loves the idea of creating a group class project at school.  Many schools auction off such projects in school fundraising efforts. 

Below please find a few, fun, easy group projects for your tots:

– Painted Stools or Chairs– Purchase a bare wood step stool at a bare furniture store. When you look at different sizes, make sure the stool could hold enough prints for the class! Paint the stool a cream color or something neutral. Have the teacher or parent helper paint each child's hand or foot a primary or fun color (red, blue, yellow, etc.) and have the kids put their HAND or FEET
prints on the stool.  Use a permanent pen or paint pen and write each student's names under their prints.


– Photo book of the class.  Use an online photo center such as Shutterfly or Kodak and create a photo book of the school year.  Have all parents send in their favorite school-related pictures from the year! 

– Canvas painting.  Buy a large blank canvas at an art supply or craft store and have the students go to town making a
"modern art" project.

– Purchase a plain white ceramic cookie jar (or vase or whatever) and have
the kids decorate it with paint and put their names underneath their
little "paint marks"

– Themed basket — pick a theme like "apples" or "the state you live in" or something and have the kids make items for a gift basket.
