Grocery List as a Teaching Tool

I make simple "lists" for my daughter to follow when we go grocery shopping. I just cut out pictures and glue them to construction paper and she can help me find what is on her list, while I can look for what is on mine. She loves it, it keeps her focused, and I love the excitement she gets from the recognition! (and being mommy's helper, of course!)

You can easily adapt this for an older child even including a checklist...the possibilities are endless!


  1. What a great idea! My little guy loves to help me at the store...I never thought about giving him his own list though.

  2. you are so cute and such a good little mommy :)

  3. This is a really GREAT idea! I am going to recommend it to some moms at my preschoolers! You have such a cute blog!

  4. I'm coming over from Blog Stalkers Unite, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tomorrow I believe. I am ahead for now but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere and I would so, so, appreciate your help. Her blog is and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥


Thank you for finding your way to my blog! I love your comments! :)
