“One, two, three, four, five, once I caught a fish alive...”

The list of nursery rhymes we sing with children that have counting and numbers in are endless. It goes to show just how important counting and numbers are! In this My Busy Bots pack, we aim to help active little minds and fingers focus on numbers with number recognition and counting activities. Plus, they have a chance to do a spot of fishing!
