Fun idea! I do auctions every so often with fake money that I found (clip art). I just printed the money on paper, cut them out and give them each the same amount of money. I do $15.00 each. I made a rule, though, that they can only raise the bit by either one or two dollars. That way they don't just automatically bid their full $15.00 right off the bat. It also makes the game last a little longer and gives some of the slower residents some time to think.

This is a brilliant idea! Thank you for sharing :) I'll need to have to find something different to peanuts as in England alot of work places won't allow them due to allergies, but awesome idea! :)

Awesome Sandra!!! We hold this event monthly. I usually purchase things that they can use like tissues etc, they love cookies, cracker jack they especially the homemade breads and cookies when we make them. I usually package them nicely!

Held our first peanut auction today. We used small trinket gifts etc as the items for auction. The residents had a ball, so much laughter and competitiveness. Great activity that we will hold again. Thank you.
