Benefits of the Grocery Store Scavenger Hunt
This grocery store scavenger hunt is great as a go-along with your grocery store theme. It provides many benefits for your student.
- Scavenger hunts boost observation skills. As your child looks for objects, he will develop better observation skills.
- Scavenger hunts require movement; this promotes gross motor development. You could even let your student help push the cart.
- A scavenger hunt can provide safe sensory input for your student (listen to the music in the grocery store, feel the cold metal can, see the brightly colored fruits and vegetables, etc.)
- If you work on the scavenger hunt as a team, it will promote cooperation and social skills development.
Additionally, the bonus items will increase creative and critical thinking skills as your child has to determine what food or packaging looks like various shapes (circle, square, triangle, and rectangle).
