Finding treasure chest prizes for 6th graders can be a challenge. Many of the inexpensive toys are geared for younger children. I use a set of coupons for free items such as “Homework Pass” or “Sit at the Teacher’s Desk for a Day”. However, I also use a treasure box with toy prizes. I don’t want to spend a whole lot of money trying to fill up the treasure box. This morning, I went searching online for prize box ideas for older kids. I ended up on Amazon and found some cool ideas that are fairly inexpensive. I know my sixth-graders will like them… some even look like so much fun that I would want to play with them!
Here’s my list of Treasure Chest Fillers for Older Kids:
|Scented Dessert Erasers|
|Scented Gel Pens|
|Skateboard Erasers(with real rolling wheels)|
These stretchable frogs would be exciting. I always make sure students choose from the prize box at the end of the day, so they can take them home to enjoy and aren’t tempted to play with the toys during class. You wouldn’t want frogs flying around your classroom!
|LED Flashing Rings|
|Glow in the Dark Bouncing Balls|
Accessorize with slap bracelets and colorful sunglasses.
|80’s Style Sunglasses|
Sticky hands are cheap, but tons of fun.
