Best Pie Bake Off: We had parents bring in their favorite pie for a Pie Bake Off. The teachers get to sample all the pies and vote on their favorite! I use Bring It for our sign up sheet system. It works SO well and is easy to attach to a email blast. We had 12 pies brought in.
I also talked to our local Starbucks and they generously donated coffee for 60 people- complete with cups, sugar, cream, napkins and stirrers. It was SO very kind of them and I LOVE how they are very generous with donating to the community.
To motivate our parents to participate, we gave away a $25 Village Inn gift card to the winner!
This was a very inexpensive and easy day- I spent $3.00 on pie serving utensils at the dollar store and $25 for the gift card. Its also nice for the teachers to see that parents appreciate them!
