After shopping, invite your child to help take items out of the bags. Give them some small, safe items to put away, giving hints for where things go, like, “Are there other cans in the cupboard that look like this one” or “An apple is a fruit. Where do we keep the other fruit”
See what your child is learning
Grouping things and being able to see similarities and differences helps your child make connections, which is at the heart of learning. You’re also building their memory in fun ways while encouraging them to help out!
