Hold a 'campover'. Families can pay to camp on the school fields for a night, you can arrange entertainment, a barbecue and a bonfire (suitably monitored, of course!), the children can help putting up the tents, and everyone can enjoy a bacon butty in the morning.
Hold an evening fun run/walk, organised with a map of the route, and refreshments at the end, you can have certificates for the fastest in the year group, and fastest parents! An entry fee for runners and some fundraising from the spectators, should ensure success.
Get parents to donate their professional skills to the PTA, it doesn't matter what the skill, it could come in handy for an event, or just for managing the PTA
Put on a pantomime, where the parents are the actors!!
Think about combining ideas to maximise funds. Combine a book fair with a coffee morning so people will stay longer, combine a school disco with an event for the parents, such as an auction.
