Hook a bauble like hook a duck
Guess the weight of a turkey

it's so depressing to find that everywhere the same stalls/games/raffles take place!
Can't offer anything different to above really - although we shelved the bottle tombola as it took from the main tombola (clearly too many parents more keen on alcohol than on letting their kids have a go on the kid-friendly tombola!) and we do a guess-the-number-of-baubles-on-the-tree thing too but I might nick the guess the weight of Xmas cake idea and put that forward at our next meeting!

how about a wall of bids /auction of promises - individuals donate a skill etc that can be bought by being the highest bidder ~
evening of babysitting / a baked cake for a month / gardening / donated tickets to an event eg panto etc. Contact local pubs etc for a free meal etc

Jolly-Jars are always popular.
Each child brings in a decorated jam jar filled with sweets or this year our school are having a boy/girl theme and asking them to be filled with a small toy / hair slides/toy car etc. Put a coloured raffle ticket on top ... pay 50p for a lucky dip ticket! No cost involved for PTA as donated by families.

Pin the beard on santa

Christmas tree decoration

Painting nails - anyone that is good to do christams theme nail painting

Visit Santa for the children - well the adults if they really want to but its twice the price

Oh yes and tubes of icing - you get them in the cake part at sainsbury baking section

Then digestive biccys and let the dc decorate a biccy with the icing for 50p
