Get vocal, literally. Caroling around the holidays can be an effective way to encourage community spirit, get attention for your cause and have some fun. If your little group sounds really good, you may be able to sell your services to local businesses and malls. Even in a down economy, Christmas spirit is still thriving, so hit a high note this season by organizing a caroling event.
Missed Christmas event planning? Try hosting an Easter egg hunt at a local park (or zoo if you have permission), and charge a nominal fee for admission. It's a great introduction to summer fun for the whole family and makes for touching photo opportunities. In fact, why not set up a photo booth?
