Parents night out Set up a babysitting night for parents to drop off their kids while they go shopping.
Girls can volunteer their time at the Christmas tree farm and receive a percentage of the profits.
Girls can make these treats and the parents can sell them. You can make them holiday themed – i.e. Christmas, Valentine’s Day, St Patrick’s Day, 4th of July, etc.
Take pictures with Santa! Find a free (and busy) location and someone willing to donate their time to pose as Santa.
Ho-Ho Hotline For a fee, parents can sign their children up to receive a call or letter from Santa, Mrs. Claus or an Elf. The girls can research the child’s interests and even the name of his or her “Elf on the Shelf”.
Hand-made plaster ornaments can be sold to service units for the girls to decorate. Suggested price $1/ornament. Sample Profit: 1st year - $300
Gift wrapping can be done for tips and donations from companies. It can be done at local stores, shopping malls, etc. Depending on the location you may need to provide all wrapping materials. Get them donated for additional savings! Pro-rate the money raised so that girls don’t have an advantage depending on the shift they work. One troop made $200 in just 3 hours.
Easter egg hunt
This is a cute and fun event that any community with children will love. Girls make eggs and host the hunt at a private home for donations only. Invite friends and family. One troop made $800 in 3 hours.
Valentine’s Day babysitting
Use a local church/school/etc and invite parents to drop their children off while the girls babysit. Ask for a donation or a fee for this service.
Set-up a table outside a grocery store (or other public location) and ask for donations in exchange for cleaning out someone’s pumpkin!
