Grocery Store Game

Lately trips to the grocery store with Charlotte have been especially challenging.  In an attempt to make the trip fun for her, and to make it educational, I came up with this
Grocery Store Game:

Simply print out this page and bring it along on your next trip.  Give your little one a crayon and have them search for each item on the page - circling it when they find it.  If you want to get really fancy, you could laminate it and use dry erase marker - that way it would be reusable.  (By the way, I got all of that food clipart for free from this site.) Do any of you have other tricks you use at the grocery store?


  1. So Cute! I will be using this!

  2. What a cute idea! :) I left a comment on my post but I wanted to thank you on your blog just in case you didn't get a chance to read it. :) THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU, for telling me about using background noise to sleep when you have problems with your inner ear sounds. For the first time in almost a week I was able to relax enough to sleep! It really helped! I still had the discomfort from the pounding but my brain was listening to the forrest soothing sounds (I luckily have these on my stereo) and helped me to relax and I slept pretty much all night. HUGS to you! :) THANKS so much! :) I could just cry, that's what an answered prayer it was! :)

    I have an autoimmune disorder(in the Lupus family) and it gets worse if I get run down and don't get enough sleep. So for me to be able to sleep again was a big deal. :)

    THANK YOU! Oh, and I do plan on going to an ENT soon if this doesn't get well soon. :)

  3. Thank you Jessica, I take my grandson to the grocery all the time, this will make it more fun for him!

  4. Thanks for this idea. I'm printing it for my 3 youngest grandchildren, ages 2 1/2 to 4. When my 3 children were small, I entertained them by playing "I Spy" almost everywhere we went...grocery store, doctor's office, mall, etc. It is a new game every time it is played! It is great for in the car, too. If they can see out the window, just have them look for a specific colored car or a type of vehicle, flag, etc. rather than for a specific object like regular "I Spy". Once they had a concept of numbers, I made up simple math word problems and let them solve them in their heads (or using their fingers). When they got old enough to go to school, they understood that the dreaded "word/story" problems were just common sense math questions about everyday occurrences.


Thanks so much for commenting! If you have a question, make sure your email is in your profile or leave it in a comment so I can answer you. Otherwise email me at jessica(at)sewhomegrown(dot)com - Have a lovely day!
