Grocery shopping with kids is such a big part of life for so many of us moms, yet with the kids in tow it can be a major HASSLE! I’ve had people really look down their noses at me in the grocery store as I tried to handle my brood!

Grocery Store Games For Kids
In this vlog, I talk about some of the strategies I use to make it through the grocery store checkout line with my kids. For starters, since I love the idea of kids who help others, I encourage my kids to load things into bags and then to PLACE not dump our items onto the belt at the end.
I say no to candies on the checkout line too, because that always causes battles and I’m usually too frazzeled to deal with sugar highs.
Go “Zen Under Ten” When You’re Shopping
In this vlog, I also walk through an amazing balancing game that can help you get through the checkout line in the grocery store, something I learned from a friend of mine Royce, who has started an incredible site on mindfulness (a yoga term) for kids and families called www.zenunderten.com.
It’s a super site with great tips for families looking to take a step back and get more in touch with their bodies and souls. Check it out!
Wishing you happy and peaceful shopping!
