Incy wincy spider climbed up the number seven... This My Busy Bots activity is the perfect way to teach your child number recognition, writing numbers and counting. As each bug walks along the garden path they learn how to write their numbers and then are able to practice counting as they place each number on the numbered silhouettes on the side.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 2 - 4 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
