Thanks for the great ideas & keep them coming,
I used the recycled containers from my home. I used my phone to scan the QR code, all of my items were purchased from Wal-Mart so getting the price of the items were really easy. Sometimes you can use Wal-Mart QR Scanner on items purchased from other stores as long as Wal-Mart sell the items also. We had so much fun, the winner received the item they place a correct bid on or the bid to the nearest price won.

I’m trying to find prices in the 1970 in ireland for groceries
But coming up with nothing would love to go this activity with the clients ! Anyone know where to start looking for prices in 1970s
Thank you

Hi Mary
I found this on Google
a pound of bacon cost 95 cents, a dozen eggs cost 60 cents, bread was priced at 24 cents, 10 pounds of potatoes was 90 cents, coffee was 91 cents and a gallon of orange juice cost 86 cents.
I am searching in the US so you may have better luck by searching yourself
With that said you do not have to have the exact prices
You can ask the residents at another time to give you prices then have the activity at a different time

I do this by purchasing a few items, (save the receipt for proof of cost)
Then print/write a shopping list to give to clients. They then put the price they think each item costs and then total the cost of the list. This gives you time to chat about the items. The nearest to the receipt cost wins the goods.
