Things to Make and Sell at School

Got the perfect dress for prom but no money to buy it? Eying that pair of new Nike shoes on your way back from school everyday? Here is a list of few things to make and sell at school; so you can get what your heart desires!

Money - it might not be the thing that can buy you happiness. But the things you can buy with money can definitely put a smile on your face! A new iPod, that easel you wanted to paint your dreams on, or those fancy roller-blades! Everybody spends at least a part of his or her time every single day trying to make money, or save some. However, it's not always about the 'money' really... Sometimes it is just about the feeling of having earned money on your own and bought something out of it; your first guitar, a special edition of the latest book by your favorite author, or just something for your sweetheart! And you don't need a graduate degree to make money - sometimes 'the urge' is all it takes, especially if you are at school!
Fun Things to Make and Sell at School
So you have your eye on that special something you want to buy for yourself; how do you go make money for it? Here are some fun things to make and sell at school. They will earn you the money you need and also give a vent to your creative side!
Cupcakes and Pastries
If you like baking, selling cupcakes and pastries could satiate the chef in you along with earning you good money! Everybody has a sweet-tooth, and your cupcakes or pastries might just become something someone craves for when his/her sweet-tooth aches! What's more, you can snack on them yourself! One idea I can give here is - you can target all the different school functions, like sports matches, fests, exhibitions etc. Selling cakes and pastries on such occasions can be a great idea.
Every girl - even the 'tom-boy' kind - will always find a piece of jewelry she can relate to. However, jewelry is not just limited to girls nowadays; even guys can be seen sporting a bracelet or a chain! Hemp jewelry, or jewelry made out of string and beads or stones can be a great hit among youngsters. If you really let your creativity flow, you can come up with funky and innovative jewelry making ideas. For all you know, the jewelry you make, might just become a must-have item!
Sketches and Paintings
Sketches and paintings, especially portraits, can be a very creative way to earn money. It can also earn recognition for the artist in you. You can make small sketches and get them framed. People can then buy these frames as a gift for someone, or just to decorate their own room or study-tables! One way to use this hobby to earn money is to sketch what people want, that is - to take orders. Alternatively, you can hold an exhibition-cum-sale of your sketches and paintings, so people can buy from your collection directly.
Paper Bags
There are so many times in a single day when we are hunting for a bag to carry something in - your lunch-box, some extra books you need to carry, or a stack of CDs you borrowed from a friend. A paper bag can be just the thing someone in school is looking for! But apart from this, paper bags can also help you spread interesting messages - like 'Say No to Plastic'. You can even use paper bags to promote something or someone - maybe even your own band!
Music CDs
They say the problem with life is that there is no background music! You could provide just that to all music lovers at your school! You can burn CDs and come up with your own unique compilation of the songs. You can have your own 'Best Romantic Songs', 'Best Songs of the 80s', 'Best of (ARTIST NAME)', 'Top 20 Dance-tracks'... the list is endless! You could even take orders from music aficionados and burn custom-made CDs. however, make sure you are not infringing any copyright laws when you do so. Say no to piracy.
You can always say more with a card, and so giving someone a card on a special occasion will never go out of fashion! There is something about giving someone a card, watching them open it, and seeing the smile on their face as they read it. This is something you will never achieve through an e-mail or an e-Card! Making a card can also give the writer or poet in you a platform, especially if you have a flair for writing! However, make sure to make extraordinary cards, rather than plain and simple ones. Many people prefer sending an e-card over mailing an actual card these days. So your cards have to be especially attractive and catchy for them to sell.
Making and selling things at school is about the money, yes. You absolutely need to have that new phone, and your parents won't give you the money! But it also helps you create something out of nothing, which is a great feeling in itself! It gives you the opportunity to be a trend-setter. So set your imagination free and explore the artist in you!
