What we’ve done
After some extensive research, surveying parents who shop with us we have created some great new initiatives at the centre to try to keep your children entertained whilst you pop to the shops and pick up what you need. Our research told us that children not having enough to do whilst out shopping is the biggest pitfall, so here’s what we have coming up to help you out:
Top tips for shopping with the kids
We also have some Top Tips from our Kids Club Brand Ambassador Sam Wass from Channel 4’s The Secret Life of on how to make the most of shopping with your children:
- Tick Tock – give them a clock!
Time is a difficult concept for children to grasp, so giving them a clock or timer to look at would be a good way of helping them feel in control of the situation. Agree a time limit for being in the shop, encouraging them to watch it countdown – but when the time is up, mums and dads need to stick to their promise and leave the shop.
- Tick It Off
Make the experience interactive and agree a shopping checklist which children can help to tick off, understanding that once the list is complete, it's time to go home. When doing the weekly food shop, stick to a familiar route along the aisles and ask them to help find the items they like: ‘Oh look, we’re in the cereal aisle, please can you find me the Ready Brek.’
- Have a break
Plan regular breaks in between shops with intervals of play or refreshments to keep children stimulated and give structure to the trip.
