Hi All,
I am after prize suggestions for Bingo. ??

My residents LOVE to get a prize when they win bingo and I think its a fun and appropriate thing to do.

At the moment my prizes are donations from a "Avon Lady". Whilst they are good they are getting a little tiresome. I also provide the option of freddo frogs, little bags of chips, or coffee "vouchers" more so for the men.

Any suggestions??

HI Sam, seems that you have been quite creative already, why not put the call out for little donations for prizes, highlighting it needs to be something fun even from those $2.00 shops, this may help in some way and also the budget too. If you have some budget - why not look at shopping there or even at op shops for little trinkets. Hope this helps you Sam.

Hi, we have a prize bingo game too and although we include toiletries like shower gel and body spray I also add individual packs of tissues, lip balm and wet wipes as full line or 4 corner prizes and things like cross word and word search puzzle books as main prizes for those who prefer them.

Hi , We have a trade in table once a month , prizes at bingo and other games is "bingo points" I make on the computer , the clients save their points up from games played during the month . They trade them in on a variety of items , this gives them a "shopping experience" , buying tooth paste , tissues , shampoo , powder , cards etc ,I ask if anyone needs anything in particular before I get the items . This activity has proven to be popular with them all

This is a great idea but how much is each point worth.

little magnifying glasses are always a hit as well as foaming hand soap for the vanity in their room. we always have a lot of donated wool on hand which makes a great prize for any keen knitters in the group!
