p"ART"y - Have teens and children create Respect Life drawings, paintings, or any artwork.  Host a party to display the artwork which can be purchased.  The money is donated to a local Respect Life organization. 

Baby Contest - This can be held at a school fair or craft fair. Charge a small fee for parents to enter their children.  Allow them to bring 1-2 photos and they may bring their child.  Voting is accomplished through financial donations, and the baby with the largest contribution in the bucket of a certain category is declared that category's winner.  Have separate buckets and categories for best outfit, best personality, best pictures, cutest smile, and others.  Establish prizes for each category, and try to solicit prizes as donations from local businesses.  (For best outfit, prize could be gift card to clothing retailer.  For best smile, the prize could be a free photo session)

Bingo for Babies - Host a family bingo night for your friends and family.  You can get prizes and food donated.  You can charge an entrance fee and sell the food.  

Birthday for Babies - 
On your birthday, you can ask for donations or gift cards for a Respect Life organization instead of birthday gifts.

Black & White Night - 
Life is "Black & White" - you are either alive or you aren't.  Show your support of all LIFE by hosting a "Black & White" night. This can be a themed dinner, dance or combination event.  Decor should all be black and white, although some elegant pieces could be deep red. Ideas: decorate table with black tablecloths and have white plates and napkins; centerpieces can be red roses in white vases or white candles decorated with black beads; could also use zebra print.  Encourage attendees to wear formal attire or black and white dressy casual attire.  To make the event more elegant, you can provide a live orchestra and instruct them to dress in black.  For the dance, you could have a variety of black and white masquerade masks.  This can be woven into the theme that even though you don't know who they are, their life still holds value. 

Bonco for Babies - 
Host a fun game night of Bonco to raise money for a Respect Life organization. 

Bowling for Babies - 
Rock n Bowl would be a great place for this event. 

Bracelets for Babies - Middle school and high school students love to wear string-type bracelets.  You could sell some type of bracelet and donate the profits. 

Celebrate KidsA celebration of kids will be a big hit with children and parents, and can be customized to any budget or venue. For children, establish a designated play area with toys and entertainment, such as clowns or balloon animal creators. This area should be provided free of charge.

In one area, host a sale. Solicit donations of outgrown kids' clothes and toys in good condition. Sell these for reasonable prices per piece or in gift bags. Clothing can be organized in bags and sold according to color and size, such as "six month old girl's clothes." Clothing can be organized into bins such as "trains," "cars," and "balls." This will reduce the mess involved with the sale.
Provide refreshments in another area. Serve kid-friendly foods, such as chicken nuggets, grilled cheese or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and macaroni and cheese. Be sure to include selections for the parents, also. 
If space allows, encourage local businesses to advertise at the event. These could include clothing retailers, toy stores, daycare centers, and others. Charge them a fee for the ability to advertise as a means of generating additional funds.
Provide raffle or chance games for children and parents to win prizes. Charge a fee for each turn and give away donated prizes to keep funds low.
Have a kid's talent show contest to showcase their skills. Charge a participation fee and award a prize at the end. Have pennies count as votes. Other forms of entertainment could be provided by volunteers for a fee. These could include hair braiding, face painting, bead jewelry creation, magnetic fishing, tug of war, three-legged races, and others. (www.ehow.com)

Glo for God Party - This party is great for boys and girls ages 8-10 or 11-14.  Theme is that each of us is a light in the (dark) world.  Have glo necklaces, bracelets, etc.  A black-light is another great asset to this party.

Rainbow - The never-ending promise!  A Rainbow was God's promise to Noah that He would never flood the entire world again. Unfortunately, the rainbow has come to symbolize other things in the world.  With children, we can bring the good news of the Rainbow back again.  This lesson/party can focus on the promise from God and our promise that we will NEVER stop defending life.  Focus on each color of the rainbow and have an activity or prayer to go with that color.  Children love colors and will be fascinated by  the theme of this lesson/party :)
