Loonie Drop – Fist Full of Dollars
This is a great reward activity for winners, and it won’t cost you as much as it would appear. A Loonie Drop was held in front of the school (call it a Fist Full of Dollars). A student is selected in a draw and asked to stand with one hand outstretched at waist level. Loonies are dropped by a teacher from above shoulder height. The student can keep every loonie that they catch without dropping. Once they drop one, they keep what they have in their hand.
As the loonies pile up, they tend to bounce off the accumulated metal and it’s a great crowd pleaser and not that expensive for the campaign. Quite a few participants can have a try at catching before you use up two rolls of coins. Many students are so nervous in front of the crowd that they drop the first one!
