Together, watch this video of Abby, Elmo, and Elmo’s daddy at the supermarket. Then ask: What were Abby and Elmo learning or practicing in the supermarket? (shapes, colors, counting)

Next time you go to the grocery store, start by making a list of what you need together. Depending on your child’s age, he might illustrate each item on the list. Then try some of the things you saw in the video.
