Pattern & Number Fun Bundle | Three Busy Bags

Regular price £0.00 £19.50 Sale

There are patterns all around us; it’s something that fills our world with beauty. Noticing repetition in a certain order by size, shape or colour is the beginning of pattern recognition. This growing awareness is a key building block for Maths reasoning. In this My Busy Bots pack children are encouraged to start developing these important skills.

This bundle is suitable for little ones from 3 - 5 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.

Bag 1: Squiggles

All children love to express themselves, especially through bright colours and creativity. This is a hands-on My Busy Bots bag, where patterns; swirls; squiggles and zig-zags are created using an everyday familiar item… buttons. This bag strengthens fine motor skills; hand-eye coordination; concentration, Maths patterns and it’s fun!

Contents:

  • 1 Information card with instructions and ideas to extend the activity and list of skills being developed
  • 8 Laminated pattern activity cards
  • 40 Grams of brightly coloured buttons in various sizes
  • 1 Brightly coloured storage bag

Bag 2: All shaped up

Shapes and colours everywhere! Pattern making, colour sorting and shape finding - what more could you ask for from a My Busy Bots bag? All little ones love different and unusual things to play with (probably why they are always unpacking cupboards!) and in this bag they will discover shape links which can be used in a variety of different ways.

Incy wincy spider climbed up the number seven... This My Busy Bots activity is the perfect way to teach your child number recognition, writing numbers and counting.
