Thursday is my meal planning and shopping day. I involve Matilda as much as possible while we're out shopping. I figure if she's not bored she'll be less likely to throw a tantrum.
She helps choose the goodies and puts them into bags...mushrooms take a while as she counts them in one by one!
You'll remember here is where I shared what I take with us to keep her entertained.
But lately she's been more interested in the shopping list and crossing things off, so I decided to make her own shopping list complete with pictures.
I attach it to a little mdf clipboard from Officeworks and this way she'll learn to match the words and pictures as well as being involved.
