Grocery List for a 4 year old

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Tomorrow with my two youngest daughters, aged 4 and 3 months, we will hit the grocery store for our weekly groceries. Having experienced this in the past I know that my daughter will start out as an angel, she will be on her best behavior and I also know that it will last 15 minutes. Then something will over take her body and she will want this and that and this and that. She won’t listen and will be running all over the place. It will all go downhill from here, there will be tears, anger, frustration, etc. Oh, it frustrates me already just thinking about it. It is hard to explain to a 4 year old that we are on a budget and we buy only for the meals that we planned for. We shop according to “THE LIST”.

So here is my genius plan to make it a happy trip for both of us. I made her a list of her very own, one that she can look at and then go find the food items. I have cut pictures out of the flyers and taped them to a piece of white paper. I also wrote the name of the item beside the picture. I’m excited, hopefully she will be too. I hope this helps to keep our grocery trip calm and tear free!



Wish me Luck!
