Integrate Grocery Store Learning

The grocery store can be so much more than a chore. Don't rush through the task—take your time and encourage your little learner to help you create the shopping list, read the names of the items and match them to the list. As your kid gets older, grocery tasks can age up as well—soon you'll have a little helper who can fetch items around the store, compare prices and read labels for nutritional information.
