I was hoping that while we were on holiday we would do a handful of activities to blog about, but in the end, we only really ended up doing two and just enjoyed a relaxing time doing basically nothing.
This is the first thing that we did do.
I bought my best friends daughter a shopping game for Christmas and recently when we were visiting her we got to see it in action and I thought what a simple but fun idea for a game it was, and decided that rather than going out to buy it for my kids, it would be easy enough to replicate at home.
So I made 4 shopping trolley cards. Each had 8 pictures on it of items that needed to be collected. I made 32 smaller cards with individual items on them (16 different items and mixed and matched them across the shopping trolley cards).
Really simple so far.
The idea of the game then is to be the first to collect all your shopping.
Everyone takes turns to pick up a card and if it is on their shopping list they keep it, and if not they replace it. And this continues until someone gets all their shopping.
Hence Daddy, who was a little more clued up on how the game actually worked, won most games!
