    Our poultry club is holding our first real show next month, and I would like some ideas of easy things to make to raffle off.
    All proceeds go towards the club, but I would like some neat ideas that would be simple to make to take seeing my time is limited between now and then (which is the 19th.) with being secretary of the show and also showing.
    I am hoping that people will bring stuff the day of the show to raffle, but want some back up stuff in case no one does.

    How about getting a few eggs, and blowing them out, and painting them...putting them in a cute little basket with straw, for a "nest" You can also get some dried flowers to "decorate the nest" with. Cute for a countertop deco.

    I'm not sure how big your club is, but if you could get your local feed store to donate a gift certificate (for 25 to 50 bucks)It's great advertising for them .

    Or, you could put together a great gift basket.
    Essentials for the beginner or one for a person who knows all. Gift baskets are easy and look great!

    Wow, those are some great ideas, thanks alot! I have seen the food items at other shows and yeah, they do go great! I was gonna buy like small feeders and waterers, that kinda thing. Maybe I will get a few of those Sudoku puzzle books seeing they are so popular!

    Them are some great ideas everyone. Maybe you can put together a gardening package. A flower pot, hose, seeds, some gloves, and soil. My mom gave me a gift like this for Easter and she got everything at a dollar general store.
