Starting big school can be a really daunting time, we all want our precious little ones to be as prepared as they can be without being pushy parents. This pack has a selection of My Busy Bots bags that will help a child navigate the first few learning areas that they will cover when they start their school career. Phonics; numbers; shapes; colours and patterns are at the top of the list for preparation! Fine motor skills are also key so that they can begin to write with ease.

This bundle is suitable for little ones from 4+. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.

Flashcards: School starter toolkit

Here in one compact toolkit are flashcards that cover a wide range of areas including: Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the world and Expressive arts and design. The idea is that you cuddle up on the sofa and spend a few minutes at a time chatting about a handful of the cards. This will help to spark conversations between you and your child, reinforce things they might know already and introduce them to new things they may not know already. 

Many parents want to support their child but don’t know where to start, well here you go….


  • 33 A6 laminated flashcards bound together

Bag 1: Something beginning with...

“Moon, Monkey, Mouse!” Each child learns at a different pace, especially when it comes to letter sounds. This is why it’s essential we keep it fun and light-hearted. In this My Busy Bots bag little ones are introduced to amusing characters and images, which will help them identify the letter sound for each card, and place that letter on its matching card.


  • 1 Information card with instructions, ideas to extend the activity and list of skills being developed
  • 26 Laminated letter sound cards A-Z
  • 26 Beautiful wooden letters

Bag 2: Sparkles

Who does not love a little (or a lot) of sparkle? Well, we certainly do! In this busy bag, we have developed a playful activity with counting cards and gems, an ideal way for little ones to practice counting on from a given number. This starts them on the road towards understanding addition and giving them a stronger understanding of numbers. It can be adjusted to help children at different stages. We have extended the number range in this activity, with number from 5 up to 27 - so lots more fun to be had! 


  • 1 Information card with instructions, ideas to extend the activity and list of skills being developed

All children love different and unusual things to play with and in this bag they will find shape links which can be used in many different ways. This My Busy Bots bag can be tailored to children of all ability levels.

    Thank you for so quick delivery!
    I bought this for my son for his 4th birthday (which is few weeks away still) but I thought I will have a go with these bags while he is in pre-school. Absolutely love all of them and can’t wait to see him doing them 🥰
