Every other year I take my 7th and 8th grade students to
. It is an outstanding trip. We begin in Washington DC Jamestown, Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg and then head up to the capital stopping on the way at . While in Washington, we see the museums, the Capitol Building, the monuments and memorials, the National Achieves, the Library of Congress…… basically, we do it all….. Mt. Vernon
All this takes money, so I’m sometimes known as the ‘fund raising’ person. A Cookie Walk is a super easy way to make quick money.
Here’s what you need:
A day when lots of traffic will come to your location. I hold my Cookie Walk at our school’s annual Craft Fair.
Many different bakers willing to make many different types of cookies
Decorated and lined coffee cans (or other take away containers)
Tablecloths, trays, doilies, plastic gloves, cash box
Here’s what you do:
|Invite people to choose a can and wear a disposable glove.|
|Allow guests to fill their cans with whatever cookies they wish.|
|This room smelled so great - spicy and sweet!|
|Be sure to have a wide variety of cookies. I usually ask for Christmas themed cookies.|
|All the cookies were sold in about 2 1/2 hours.... just a very few leftovers. People were waiting at the door to be the first ones in for the best cookies.|
|My Cookie Walk is in our school's preschool room, which is perfect because there are two doors and I can direct traffic in one door and out the other..... people pay at the end of the line.|
If you have specific questions regarding how to host your own Cookie Walk please feel free to contact me!
