I take both my kids grocery shopping with me. Some days I consider going at night, alone, so that I can actually focus more on my shopping list and less on “Can we get that?”
Today, when we went grocery shopping I had a new plan that would allow me to focus on the list, have fun with my kids, and be a bit educational along the way. Before we left, I had Silas make his own shopping list. I told him a handful of the items that were on my grocery list and then he drew pictures of those items. Then, together, we worked on writing the names of each item below its corresponding picture. It was actually a lot of fun and Silas really enjoyed making his list. He was excited to go to the store and even more excited to find his items. It was almost like a scavenger hunt for him.
I highly recommend this. It was fun to make the list, he had a lot of fun finding his items, and he had fun working on his Alphabet/Spelling. All in All… A Success!
My Kids Make a grocery shopping list, and yours can too! See the pictures for more ideas:
