A number of pots are filled with sand.In some a coin or small prize is placed in the bottom before the sand is added so that it is completely hidden.People then choose a pot of sand which they pour through a garden riddle / sieve.If they are lucky the prize will be revealed.If not " Oh well they can always buy another pot!"
Tickets hidden in library books- My version of the golden tickets has different colors to use in different genres. These will be hidden in library books that have not been checked out in a while. The green ones will encourage the students to try a new book too. Cute idea only "an Emerald Ticket."
