Regular price £23.00 £20.00 Sale

As children start to remember and understand the wonder of Christmas, they begin to share in their family’s traditions and more magical memories are made. Whether it’s the music you play and the hats you wear each year when you decorate the tree or what you leave out for Santa when he makes his long-awaited visit. What you do as a family becomes more meaningful as years go on.

The gifts we give our children can also be more meaningful if they are unique Christmas gifts or something that engages not just their hands but their minds as well. Our busy bags are amazing educational gifts for kids, gifts that develop key motor and visual skills along with encouraging learning through play. We have a wonderful range of unusual gifts for children, if you are after something different this year.

This bundle is suitable for little ones from 5 - 8 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.

Bag 1: Build a word

Compound words can open up a whole new way of looking at the words we say and how they can mean different things when put together. This My Busy Bots busy bag is a fun and memorable tool to show how two unrelated words can be combined to make a brand-new word. At this development stage, children are already familiar with how words can be decoded into sounds (like r-a-t), but compound words show them how words can be broken down into parts that have different meanings. A great help when learning to read bigger words!
