A cone is like a party hat and a sphere is like a bouncy ball. 3D shapes are everywhere, we just need to stop and take a moment to look out for them. When we understand that they are all around us, it makes it easier to identify and remember them. In this My Busy Bots bag we do just that, we use familiar everyday items and link them to 3D shapes in our world.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 4 - 8 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
