I find those car games they have in the store solved the problems in the grocery store for my son. We had these box ones that folded out and had magnetic pieces to play on the board. We had checkers, tic-tac-toe, and the favorite was shoots and ladders. Later we got him a had held computer game that taught numbers, shapes, and letter problems. The favorite game was hangman. Once when I was reading the cold medicine he was taking the shampoo bottles down in Rite Aid and arranging them in groups by matching colors. I thought it was cute but the girl in the store almost had a stroke! I was calm about it and I turned it into a seek’n’find lesson on shape and where on the shelves the matching bottles were as we put them away. The calm method works much better because if you yell and carry on they’ll do that or worse when they get bored in a store because they know it bothers you!
