Heinz and Seek
Dragging uncooperative children around supermarkets is hell at the best of times. Heinz and Seek (created by my brother Eustace Blister) is the perfect game guaranteed to keep them entertained all the way from the cheese to the checkout.
Very simply one parent enters the supermaket first and moves an item ( one that is easily recognisable by all players - such as a branded tin of baked beans, packet of crisps, etc). The item must be placed somewhere else in the store, at a reasonable height for the players to find.
Then all the family enter the store and are informed what the product is. Whilst shopping, the players must find the moved item before the checkouts are reached.
