I was browsing the internet for some craft ideas for Ashlees choir class fundraiser and saw this new craft alot of people are doing. It is called homemade gumball machines that are made using flower pots, if you look them up on youtube you can find tons of videos showing how to do them, just wondering if anyone here has ever done one. It seems like a very easy craft and Ashlee's choir has expressed interest in getting some made so they can raise funds for their 1st choir
competition in a month..

If it were me, I would try to get the plastic flower pots so they are unbreakable

How would that be used as a fundraiser? Younger kids might like to make them, but probably not buy ones that are already made.

The choir class is going to make them and sell them to raise the money for the choir competition in a month. They are excited to make them, I bought supplies to make one tonite and we will use that as the prototype

They sound really cute and I would think any kid might need one for Grandma or Grandpa's house filled with candy! Ok, maybe that's my idea because Grandparents are supposed to give you the things (like candy) that you don't get at home

Janet thats a wonderful idea :O) Going to have the kids make them for Grandmas house she always has a stash of candy for each grandkid. Ash loves receses peanut butter cups so she has a hidden stash just for her Con loves kit kats so she has some for him and the other 2 Sel and Kat love hersheys minatures so she has some for them.
