Activities

A Trip to the Market PDF FACEBOOK SHARE ICON.

Involve your child in food shopping and meal preparation whenever you can.

What You Need:


  • Paper

  • Pencil

  • Tape/glue

  • Child-sized scissors

  • Grocery ads

What To Do:


  1. With your child, make a grocery list. Look at the grocery ads in the free newspapers and have him cut out pictures of the items that you need. Tape or glue the pictures onto the paper and have him watch you write the words as you spell them out. “We need bananas…b-a-n-a-n-a spells banana.”

  2. Talk about the price of the items. “The bananas are on sale here for 89 cents a pound.”

  3. Take your list with you when you go to the market, and with your child, find the items you need.
