Keeping Me Busy Pack

Regular price £27.00 £25.00 Sale

Children learn best when their senses are engaged. It encourages them to play, create, investigate and explore to make sense of the world around them. This My Busy Bots pack will keep fidgety fingers occupied as they capture your little one’s attention and imagination with fascinating materials and different textures.

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.

Bag 1: Monster teeth

Recognising colours is an important milestone for your little one. This My Busy Bots bag combines colour recognition with essential fine motor skills to keep little minds and fingers busy. As each paperclip is placed on the matching colour card… they become MONSTER TEETH!

Contents:

  • 1 Information card with instructions, ideas to extend the activity and list of skills being developed
  • 6 Laminated colour activity cards
  • 24 Brightly coloured 50mm paper clips
  • 1 Brightly coloured storage bag

Bag 2: Pinch a pompom

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.

Bag 3: ARE WE THERE YET?

“3, 2, 1, GO!” The cars speed off down the track and disappear around the first bend...

Learning to write letters is vitally important. This My Busy Bots bag allows children to use their imagination as they drive their car around the track and form their upper case letters. It can be hard for new writers to know where to begin some letters, so starting at the traffic light and following the arrow will set them on the right track.

  • 1 coloured race car

Your little monsters will love this My Busy Bots bag! As they count to the number on the card they need to place the same number of googly eyes to wake their sleeping monster up. Number recognition and counting skills are explored in this activity, as well as the development of fine motor skills.
