Shapes & Counting Bundle | Three Busy Bags

Regular price £19.50 Sale

From a very early age little ones become aware of shapes and colours, even if they don’t know their names. Shapes and colours make up the world around us and are the building blocks to help children develop in many areas as they grow up. In this My Busy Bots pack we investigate different colours, shapes and counting.

This bundle is suitable for little ones from 3 - 5 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.

Bag 1: Taking shape

All children are drawn to brightly coloured things, they love to touch, hold and experience their learning first-hand. In this My Busy Bots bag, little ones use fun coloured shape blocks to explore different shapes and colours. As they match the shapes to the pictures, rockets zoom to the moon, crocodiles go snap and fish begin to swim in the sea!

Contents:

  • 1 Information card with instructions and ideas to extend the activity and list of skills being developed
  • 8 Laminated activity cards
  • Brightly coloured shape blocks
  • 1 Brightly coloured storage bag

Bag 2: Get into shape

Aah, a simple clothes peg! It’s a perfect tool for helping tiny fingers strengthen and develop. This My Busy Bots bag combines shape and colour matching to keep your little one busy. They will use visual discrimination to decide which shape and colour matches their smiley-faced friend.

This activity is suitable for little ones from 3 - 7 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.

Contents:

  • 1 information card with instructions, ideas to extend the activity and list of skills being developed
  • 12 laminated shape activity cards
  • 12 wooden pegs

Bag 3: Wish upon a star

Catch a falling star and put it… on the right number! When little hands pick up stars to place on the numbers their fingers are working hard, developing those muscles for writing. This My Busy Bots bag helps children practise their counting and number recognition, important skills they need to learn for school.

Contents:

  • 1 information card with instructions, ideas to extend the activity and list of skills being developed
