“3, 2, 1, GO!” The cars speed off down the track and around the first bend...
Learning to write letters is key. With this My Busy Bots bag children can use their imagination as they drive their car around the race track and form their lower 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 yellow arrow will send them on the right track.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 2 - 8 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
