The Great Holiday Bake-Off

The Kids Baking Challenge
Baking to raise funds for local concerns is almost as old as the U.S.  Whether planning to sell baked goods during, or after school hours, a well-executed bake sale offers students and communities dozens of learning outcomes supporting literacy, sciences, math, health, technology, families, careers and communities. 
Top Ten Bake Sale Benefits

8.  Calculate costs of products, package for profitability, evaluate customer traffic.
