This reminded me of when I was a nanny. I always made a list and brought it with me. In the store I gave the kiddo a crayon and asked him to check stuff off. I also had certain areas where he could and could not walk. Like the cereal aisle he could get out to pick a cereal. That way he had something to look forward to.
