Putt Putt Night

We had a great turn out at our school's first annual Putt Putt Night.  It was by far my favorite PTO activity of all time.  Every teacher helped make some pretty impressive holes.  I tried to take a picture of most of them.  I forgot a few. 

Funny Frogs
This was my class.  Complete with "pools" and a giant frog to hit the ball through its legs.









3... 2... 1... Lift Golf!
This was the winner of Most Creative and Overall Favorite.  It was even cooler in real life - it was dark with flashing lights.

Dangerous Dinosaurs

Junk Yard

Garfield Land

Maze

What a neat idea!! Did your PTO use the event to raise money for the school? If so, do you mind sharing a few details? I would love to do this at our school!

Our PTO doesn't do huge fundraisers, they just do smaller activities like these throughout the year. It cost $1 per person or $5 per family to go through all 17 holes. We also sold refreshments, so we made money on those. We ended up making $350 that night. I've heard from lots of parents/teachers saying how much they loved this. I highly recommend it! :)

I love the idea! One question - could you please share how many students were involved? We're trying to guage how this compares to our school's size. Thanks!

I love the idea! We're interested in trying it next year at our school. Could you pleas help us understand whether it was a school-wide event and the no. of students participating? We're trying to guage the amount we could potentially raise. Thanks!

It was a school-wide event and we have about 400 students, K-5. I don't know how many actually came, but about half my class was there. Let me know if you need any additional info. :)

What a fantastic idea. Our PTO is always looking for fresh ideas. I will definitely pass this one along!

Cindy said...

This is a great idea!!! Where did you get the equipment you used and how many did you need? This would be a great way for our PBS to raise money next year. Thanks! :)

I love this idea. What did you use for the hole to catch the ball?
