How do you keep your kids entertained during errands?

Today I had a few errands to get done today with my 2-year-old. She really doesn't like to sit in a cart, but she takes off every other second and has to touch/play with everything! It pretty much takes me an hour to get one thing from one store. So, today, I let her take her big sister's Kindle with her so she could play games. She was an angel!! She sat quietly in the cart and several stores. I do feel a little guilty for letting her have so much "screen time", but I was actually able to get some stuff done!

What tricks to you have for entertaining your kids while you are doing errands?

I allow my daughter to help me shop she loves that.  It makes her fell like a big girl and she calls herself mommy's big helper. 

I always bring a snack !
