You knew it was going to happen one day. You’re almost in tears. Your toddler just pulled an orange out of the bottom of the giant fruit display at the grocery store and now there are a couple hundred oranges rolling in every direction. Meanwhile your 6 month old baby is screaming while you scramble on your hands and knees to pick up as many oranges as you can, completely mortified.
But this didn’t happen. Not today. Today you had our Grocery Scavenger Hunt.
Don’t forget to Pin this for later!

Free Printable – Grocery Scavenger Hunt
Parenting toddlers is often spent preventing disasters. Please don’t touch that. Don’t climb on that. No no no, don’t eat that!
How on earth are we supposed to get them to sit still for 15 minutes to teach them the Bible every day?
Lucky for you, you found our blog. We take activities your kid already loves and pair them with Bible lessons. Snack time, stickers, kitchen science, process art, and loads of other activities toddlers and preschoolers love. Now, they are Bible lessons.
To make sure you’re the first to get all of our Bible activities, sign up for our email list here:
Today I’m sharing with you the grocery scavenger hunt, which is also a Bible lesson on the Garden of Eden. Instead of begging for every box of strawberries in sight, your child will be busy with a color scavenger hunt.

PRO TIP: Print off one for each child. I made the mistake of only bringing one copy to the store, resulting in arguments and tears over who got to hold the paper. Oh parenting…
Use this activity to introduce to your child the story of the Garden of Eden. Here’s the big idea:
God Made Everything
While your child searches for fruit and veggies of each color, talk about how God made all of these amazing plants for us to eat. Plants come in different shapes, colors, and textures. Some grow in the ground and some on trees. What an amazing gift God has given us. I can only imagine what types of fruit and vegetables God gave Adam and Eve to care for and enjoy.
Genesis 1:29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.
Now, every time my toddler eats a pear she praises God for making something so yummy for her tummy. Bless her little heart! I hope you and your child have as much fun as we did next time you go grocery shopping.
