Squeezing, pinching, picking, sorting, counting and colour matching! There’s endless fun to be had with this engaging My Busy Bots bag. While your little one is strengthening their fine motor skills with their tweezers, they will also be either sorting colours or counting out pompoms.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 3 - 8 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
