That is going to be my new theme for bookings after Easter and I am done using the plastic eggs for the "Book to Look". My daughter is selling suckers for 4-H, so I bought a whole bag from her. I'm going to attach the prizes to the sticks and then the sticks will be stuck in a piece of styrofoam or something from the craft store. If someone books, they can pick a sucker and see what they win. Haven't exactly decided on how the prizes will be attached to the sticks. I could put a number on each wrapper and then have a list of what number goes with what prize. Any other ideas on this?

Don't be a sucker....

You could use stickers, and put the matching sticker on the prize......
or color the stick of the sucker with a colored marker and mark the prize somehow with the same color....
Great idea you had!

You could type the prize out on a piece of paper, then wrap it around the stem of the sucker before you stick it in the styrofoam. Kind of reminds me of a funny game we used to play at our birthday parties when we were kids! There were actions printed on papers tightly rolled and stuck in the styrofoam and then you used a little stylus kind of thing that came with it to poke them out. Ah the good ol' days...

There are just too many good ideas on this site...I love it!

This is very similar to what "Family Fued" did way back when...they had a tree full of dum-dum's next to the families and the person on the end picked a sucker, if it had a black stick they won $1000 (or maybe $100, but you get the idea)!

You could do something similar and pick say 5 different color markers and color the sticks of the suckers to match 5 different colored folders with the prizes in them?

I didn't even know about the whole sucker thing on there until we received a DVD from when my great-aunt and her grandkids were on in the early 80's!

Ha!

That is too funny!! When I was little I used to watch it and I would wish that I could be on it so bad. But I was scared to death that if I was I would have to kiss Richard Dawson. About 6 years ago, my husband bought me the computer game for Christmas (with Louie Anderson as the host). Out of all the hosts, I have to say the current one (Richard Karn, Al from Home Improvement) has to be my favorite. Anyway, I know all this isn't PC related but I couldn't help myself.

I like Richard Karn too, in the DVD we have I swear Richard Dawson slipped my cousin the tounge, it was gross to watch. My aunt actually made Richard some croched chicken pot holders (they actually looked like chickens), she gave them to Richard and he put them up on the buzzer stand for the rest of the show, what a riot! Anyway, just had to say that I agree with your last statement.
