Bedtime Shopping Game

If you are having trouble getting your young children to bed without a fight, try this bedtime shopping game to solve nightly struggles. Half an hour before bedtime, set a timer for 30 minutes and bring out the toy shopping cart. A grocery bag would also work.

Have your children shop for pajamas at the clothing store (dresser), stop at a restaurant for a drink of water (kitchen), go to the dentist to have their teeth cleaned (bathroom), and stop at the library (bookshelf). Then cuddle up with your children and read the chosen book(s). When the timer rings, the children know it's time to be tucked in.
