    It's a good phrase, but it's not a sentence. :wink:

    You could add a subject and a verb, like this,

    EX: We went shopping for school supplies.

    'shopping for school supplies' functions as the object of the verb 'went'.

    You could also make the phrase into the subject by adding a verb and a complement, like this,

    EX: Shopping for school supplies is fun.

    All the best, :D
