Dollar Day Market

Whakamanawa Market Day

At the end of term three, we had an idea to help us raise some money for camp.  We thought it would be good to have a market day.  While we were preparing for it, we decided we would make everything cost one dollar, which then prompted us to call it our Dollar Day Market.  
We started by preparing and planning for our stalls.  We created a Google slide so we could advertise in our school.

We were so amazed at the turn out of our market day and were not expecting so many people to come.  We made an impressive amount of over $1400.00.  Check out some of the pictures below:

We are looking forward to holding another market next year.

I also did a market day but the difference is that we sold it for different prices. We sold amazing things like ice cream, Donuts and much more you could even be able to play fortnite. What was the best part of dollar market day and why?
