For those times when you need a bigger reward for a job well done, we like to use our TREASURE CLOSET.
You can find "treasure" in all kinds of places. We clean out closets, junk drawers, go to auctions, go to garage sales, use unopened prizes from cereal or fast food places, go to the dollar store, or second hand shops.
The trick is to wrap each item loosely in newspaper or leftover wraping paper. That way the prize winner can't tell by the shape what the prize is. Then we throw them at random into the TREASURE CLOSET and lock it.
When we unlock the closet, they must take the first one they touch. Again it is a measure of chance that seems irresistible to humans. They can trade their prizes if they want to.
