Grocery Store Hunt!

Go on a scavenger hunt in your very own grocery store! Grab a friend, a sibling, or a parent and hunt for the items. Print out this list and take it with you.  As you complete each task, cross it off, then move to the next item on your list. Make it a race and see who can finish the list fastest. Use a stopwatch or a clock to time yourselves.
