Planning an event for your non profit business is a fun and easy way to reach your community. Many families are looking for activities that are free around the community. If you have enough volunteers at your non profit that are willing to give of their time and efforts for one Saturday, you can create a community event that will be free and inviting for the community. There are many things you can do at an out reach, but you mostly want to have activities that draw families in. There are several ideas below that will ensure your out reach to be a success.
Consider having your event at a park where there are bar-b-q pits. If they don’t have them, have several people from your business volunteer to bring their own and set them up in a row. You can also rent bar b q’s by the hour. Buy hotdogs and burgers to grill up for the event. Have each volunteer from your business bring chips and a side dish to share. Desserts and sweets are easy to buy or make. Everybody loves picnic style eating and what’s easier than talking about your non-profit over food?
Set up a face painting booth. Have a list of easy designs that volunteers can paint on children’s faces. You can buy face painting kits for under $10 at your local art store. Next to the face painting booth, you could have somebody doing temporary tattoos. Fake tattoos can be bought at the dollar store or the kids section of any grocery store. Face painting and tattoos can be easily removed with warm water and a wash cloth so parents don’t have to worry about anything permanent.
Rent a bounce house for the afternoon of your outreach. Children get excited when they see bounce houses because they are fun to jump in and they can be active for a long period of time. We live in La Mirada and use a La Mirada Jumper Rental company and we found one of the most intriguing things about bounce houses is that they come in almost any shape, color, and size. They even have bounce houses that can be custom made to fit your theme, such as a Hawaii Luau theme. The bounce house company will deliver whatever bounce house you rent directly to your event. They will have it blown up before the event starts so it’s ready to use as soon as the first child arrives! The price of the bounce house rental varies but it is reasonable. Having a bounce house will make your event, one of a kind!
If the weather is warm, having a water balloon toss is a fun activity to do at an out reach. Find an area where you can spread out. Have several buckets at the start line of the toss. Have water filled balloons in the buckets and then instruct children or adults to pair off. One person out of each pair will select a balloon out of the bucket. Have that person toss the balloon to the other person. After every toss, have one person step back two steps. Then throw the balloon again. The pair that is able to step back the farthest without the balloon breaking, is the winner!
