The list is easy enough to read for the older kids, yet simple enough for my littlest one to just look at the pictures. They had such a good time finding all the things they needed on their list and it kept them busy enough where I didn't have to repeat "get in back of me when I walk, please" or "hey, get over here and let that lady pass".
Just print it out, stick it in a laminate sleeve, give your kiddos a dry erase maker and let them check off what they found. Plus, putting it in a laminate sleeve lets you use it over and over again without printing new paper every time you need to go shopping. Just wipe it clean. I keep them in my car and they'll be ready for the next time we go grocery shopping.
It's a simple thing that makes things a little more enjoyable when whatever I'm doing isn't exactly an exciting process. Yes, grocery shopping is boring, Yes, it's annoying. And yes, it isn't something I enjoy that much but when I can get my kids involved in the little things and make something a little more fun, we all have a better time. Plus, this little list could have kept my kids out of YOUR way. You're welcome :)
