Supermarket Art and Craft
What is it
Art and Craft Activity: Make their very own shopping basket!
Recycled tissue box or shoe box
Paint or colour pencils
Coloured or crepe paper
Developing simple art and craft skills
Practice painting, colouring, cutting, and pasting
Practice reading off a shopping list and counting the correct number of items
Identifying typical items found at the supermarket
How to use
1) Cut and paste the basket on pages 1 and 2 and glue them onto a recycled tissue box or shoe box
Colour, paint or decorate the basket and the box before pasting
2) Punch 4 holes and use string to make the handle for the basket
You can also use other methods to create the handle such as folding paper and attaching it with a stapler!
3) Practice cutting skills by guiding your child to cut the food items out
Print out more pictures on your own to extend the variety of items!
Practice tearing coloured or crepe paper to create a base at the bottom of the basket
4) Use the customisable shopping list on the last page to list items that your child will need to fill the basket with (eg: 2 apples)
Practice retrieving specific items
Make cutting simple by starting off first and letting your child finish up the last snip, or cut the curved parts first for them to practice cutting straight lines
If needed, identify the items one by one and read off the shopping list together
Use hand over hand prompt if your child is new to art and craft activities
