Little fingers need lots of exercise to grow and develop the muscles needed to help with writing and cutting at school – and this bag is going to do just that! In this My Busy Bots bag children fill silhouettes of everyday objects with brightly coloured blocks.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 3 - 6 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
