Celebrate the Big & Small has instructions for making a fun Candy Trivia Punch Box, reminiscent of the “Punch A Bunch” game on The Price is Right. The front is comprised of poster board and tissue paper, and each individual prize compartment was made by taping a brown paper bag behind the punch circle. The images are from 9-year-old Maddie’s candy-themed birthday party.
I have to admit, I’ve always wanted to play the games on The Price is Right. The yodeling “Cliff Hangers” game, the giant dice game, the “Grocery Game,” “Plinko”… And I really wanted to spin that wheel! While we’re on the subject of hokey game shows, I’ll just mention Supermarket Sweep. : )

    It is possible to play them! I was recently at a cousin’s bridal shower, and one of her sisters decided to do a “The Bride Is Right” theme for the games. She actually made poster boards for several of the games, like the higher lower one where people usually win cars. The highlight actually was the “Cliff Hangers” game–she and her husband crafted a little yodeler on a stick, and the yodeler’s head was a pasted-on photo of my cousin’s fiance!
