What are some good ways to teach a 3 1/2 year old during a grocery
store visit?

Thanks!

Let your child ask questions. Let your child explore
things. Parker grabs tickets (coupons). His new
favorite is to ask the price of everything. I think in
his head he's trying to figure out what that period
in the numbers means. But that's only my guess. I've
tried to explain it to him. He'll get it.
What is it, you want to teach your child about the
grocery store?

why do you need to "teach" her at the grocery store? Just let her explore
and be and she will learn.

Don't teach. Just look at *everything* with new eyes and you'll see
how amazing:

automatic doors and scanners and scales and deli ticket machines are and

all the different kinds of fish and lobsters and

how many different sounds you can hear when you close your eyes and

the man wearing a polka dot bow tie and

how high up the cereal is stacked (lift her up to get one :-) and

whether there are more tie shoes or slip ons on the people in the
store and

how you can draw pictures on the inside of the glass doors of the
freezer after they're opened and they frost over and

whether the different coffee beans and candles and apples smell
different and

whether she likes blueberries or raspberries or blackberries better and

how many different kinds of circle cereal there are and

how the different types of potatoes feel and

whether people say Hi when you say Hi to them and

how many different kitties or different types of pets there are on
the products in the pet food aisle and

whether the stories in the Weekly World News are true or not (well,
maybe for an older kid since at 3 *anything* is possible :-) and

whether you recognize the Muzak version of the song playing and ....

Just live life amazed :-)
