The Price is Right | Aged Care Activity

Activities for Seniors | By Debbie Davison
It is likely that many of your residents grew up watching “The Price is Right.” It’s a fun game that began in the 50’s and aired on TV across many countries. 

Let’s play a simple format of this great show with our residents, it will spark allot of fun conversation and have them reminiscing. 
To set the atmosphere for our gameshow make a large colorful cardboard sign “The Price is Right” and display it in the room.

Or write it on a whiteboard in big letters.
Collect some suitable household and kitchen groceries and place them on a table and have the participants sit around in full view of the items. Make a note of the current retail price for each item, the aim of the game is for the participants to guess as close as they can to the actual price. 

Now one by one, hold up each item and give a small presentation eg. “Here we have 300grams of Baking Soda”

Take the opportunity to engage them in reminiscing on what the prices of the groceries were in the past and how they may have used these items in their home.  

Award a small prize for those that guess closest to the correct price.

  • Hi, after reading this amazing post i am too cheerful to share my know-how here with friends.
  • Can I just say what a relief to discover somebody who actually understands what they're talking about on the internet. You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people should look at this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren't more popular because you most certainly have the gift. asmr 0mniartist
