Everyone loves lollipops… especially kids (and grownup kids)! Using our love for lollipops and having fun with brightly coloured items, this My Busy Bots bag helps children to develop the mathematical skill of patterns. As they use hand eye coordination to complete each pattern they will also be practising their colour matching skills.
This activity 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.
