Village Foods - shopping made easier

There's been a great new addition to our local grocery store, mini shopping carts!

They're new, shiny and today at lunch there were a number of them being maneuvered around the isles of Village Foods by Gabriola's youth. It's a fun way to get the kids interested in shopping. Let them cut out photos from a flyer, or write down three items on their "list" and let them do the shopping, it's a great way to include them in some of the family chores.

At the end, while you pay the bill (which may include a few items you didn't see on either list), the kids can head over to the cookie jar- where they can exchange a smile for a cookie. Life is sweet.
