I had a really short list yesterday with less than ten things on it, so I figured, this is a good time to make this a math game. Instead of the calculator, I went with a guessing game. On the way to the store, we went through the list together, talking about how big the pack was and how many might be in it. They then had to guess how much it cost and write it down. When we got to the store, we would write down the real price and see who was closest.
Hooooooo boy. Good thing my kiddos don't work in the pricing department at Walmart.

|John's list - apparently, he was paying attention during |
some of those trips to the store with Daddy!
