The Guessing Game



Bring the fun into FUNdraising!

With the help of an adult, visit the bulk store and pick up small candies, like jelly beans, that you’ll use to fill up a glass jar. With the permission of an adult, set up an area at your home, school or community center where people can donate money to receive a ballot that lets them guess the number of candies in the jar. After you’ve collected the ballots, count the candies and read the entries to find the person with the closest number, then contact them with the good news – they’ve won the candy jar!



  • Small candies work best because you can fit lots into a jar
  • Make sure the jar is clear and has a lid
  • Try not to use your bare hands when counting the candies to keep germs away
