Hi there
If you have a lifestyle budget or are able to charge residents $1 or $2 per bingo day (used to purchase prizes), you could introduce a token system.
Each winner receives a token and at the end of your bingo session the tokens are traded for items. I used to have $1, $2 and $5 items (so 1 token equates to $1).
Items can include your usual toiletries and chocolates but can also be small potted plants, throw blankets, scarves, hats, gloves, neck pillows etc. Some residents saved up their tokens each week so they could get that $5 trade :)
