Supermarket Treasure Hunt


If your children find supermarket shopping boring or you find it difficult to keep them occupied, you could try out this scavenger hunt game from FoodChamps.

There are instructions for ideas on ways to get children looking for foods on your shop, and then we like these printable cards which you can cut out and give them to try to find items on the list and check them off, much like a game of bingo.



Obviously if your children are young you should ask them to stay on the same aisle as you while looking for their items and not allow them to wander off round a big shop! But it will encourage them to look on the shelves in order to check off their items. You could have a card yourself and 'accidentally' miss an item so that they can beat you to finding all of their items and then help you find the one you missed.

There are also blank cards to print and write on yourself so you can get children to take responsibility for finding six items off the shopping list for you. They can learn to write the word themselves or they can draw a picture of the item they need to find.

The instructions and cards are to be found
here.
