Translating - ‘went shopping’

On a writing exercise (Cette Semaine) was asked to translate : On Monday, I went shopping with my son. My response - Lundi, j'ai fait les magasins avec mon fils. It didn’t match answers given - Lundi, je suis allé faire les magasins avec mon fils. Is there anything wrong with my answer? Went shopping is translated similarly here.

Hi M,

After much deliberation about the nuances, we have decided to include many more translations of 'I went shopping' including yours.

Thank you for pointing this out!

Bonne Continuation !
