Just like the puzzles and building blocks that we all enjoyed doing when we were young, this My Busy Bots tangram activity can teach children about spatial relationships and can help them learn their geometric shapes and colours, along with developing stronger problem solving skills.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 6 - 10 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
