We are totally setting up a grocery store in our house this week. (I will take a picture and post it later) We have a lot of play food that I’ll be putting out, but you could also save boxes and containers from your real cupboards and fridge your kids could use. Provide a shopping basket, play shopping cart, or even plastic shopping bags for them. I’ll be putting out a cash register with play money and a clipboard. We’ll take turns grocery shopping!
You could easily incorporate the food groups in this by having your child buy only those foods in the dairy group, or only those foods in the fruit group.
This would also be fun after a field trip to the real grocery store!
