Free Printable Pretend Play Shopping Lists for Kids

Free, Printable Shopping Lists for Pretend Play
The wooden and plastic pretend food that goes with our play kitchen is a disaster!
It’s usually all over the floor and it makes me want to walk right back out of the room or collect it in a haste and throw it all away, however, we use it for so many things all of the time that I keep it around.

We’ve used our play food to:

  • sort by color
  • sort by shape
  • sort by type
  • put into our miniature shopping cart
  • “cook” with it in the play kitchen
Sometimes you need something extra and exciting to do with ALL of that play food you’ve invested in, which is why I made these pretend play shopping lists.
You could also use it at the grocery store as a scavenger hunt,
an i-spy game,
or a interactive shopping list.

    These are great! I’ve heard of having picture grocery lists to get kids to help when you are shopping, but I think grocery lists for a play kitchen is even better!!

      True! Good catch. Luckily, the error didn’t effect my toddler’s play.
