The school fun fair is one of the most anticipated activities of the year for students, and a school fun fair is the place to go for games, fun, prizes, and lots of food. If you’re looking for fun fair food ideas, consider the following selections. I recently attended a school fun fair, and the following food ideas were a big hit with the kids and adults alike. You can’t go wrong with these school fun fair food ideas!
Consider asking a local restaurant to set up a portable freezer filled with ice cream selections. My daughter’s school fun fair sold three flavors of ice cream brought in by a local fast food restaurant, and it was sold out by the end of the evening. The selections were cookie dough, chocolate, and vanilla, and chocolate was the first to sell out. Keep this in mind when considering fun fair food ideas. Ice cream is a big hit anytime of the year.
Most people love pizza, especially kids, and those looking for school fun fair food ideas need to look no further than their favorite local pizza restaurant that sells reasonably priced pizzas. Bring in boxes of pizzas, and sell pieces by the slice. They’ll sell so fast that nothing is required other than the pizza boxes to keep the food warm and delicious. It’s a guaranteed seller that will go over incredibly well at your school fun fair.
Fruit and Veggie Table
A school fun fair is all about raising funds and providing a few hours of enjoyment for students and their families, but not everything must be sold. My daughter’s school fun fair provided a table filled with various types of raw veggies and fruits, and many were individually wrapped in take-home packs. Fun fair goers enjoyed ruby red grapefruit sections, cumquats, cherry tomatoes, green pepper, celery, broccoli, and many other healthy selections. By the end of the evening a little was left, but the majority of the food was enjoyed as tasty and healthful side dishes. Best of all, the healthiest food was offered for free.
If your school has access to an old-fashioned popcorn cart, consider selling bags of freshly popped buttered popcorn at your school fair. Some people arrive after lunch or dinner, and some are only looking for a light and inexpensive snack. Popcorn served in lunch bags is the perfect food for those who don’t want a full meal, and it’s one of the best ideas since it will definitely sell.
Kids and adults of all ages love hot dogs, and they’re another one of the best ideas for school fun fair food. They’re easy to heat, easy to serve, easy to keep hot, and they’re an inexpensive choice that will bring in large profits. Best of all they’ll bring lots of smiles while adding to the enjoyment and excitement of your local school fun fair. Give these ideas a try!
