My residents loved this game and almost everyone can do it! 
This is one of many free activities.
Golden Carers has 1000s of activities and resources for senior care.

What You Need

  • Ping pong ball
  • Recycled containers - for example a small box, toilet paper tube, and a solo cup. Anything that a ping pong ball can go into.
  • Scotch Tape (for attaching containers to table)
  • Long table


  • Tape containers at one end of the table.
  • Place the amount of bingo money that can be won on each container. The harder it is to roll the ping pong ball into the container, the higher the dollar amount is.
  • Participants sit at the other end of the table and take turns rolling a ping pong ball down the table, hoping it will land in one of the containers.

What a great activity! I will definitely be using this one and they will enjoy the opportunity to win more Bingo Tokens. I love the term Bingo Bucks, I'll have to steal that!

Hi Kalina
I think you can do what you would like in this game

Once someone makes a ping pong ball into the "cup" to win the money, does it get replenished with money for the next participant or is it first come, first serve and when it runs out, it runs out? Do you allow everyone to have a turn and if there is still money left in the containers, do residents get an additional chance?
Angie 26th Jul 2021 Activity Director
We use bingo bucks so they can spend it in the bingo store. So everyone wins! If they don’t get any ping pong balls in any container then they get 1 bingo bucks for participating..
