A jumbo and brightly coloured rainbow – what a happy way to learn! This busy bag is sure to fill your little one with joy as they explore and match the colours of the rainbow. Or alternatively they can flip over the jumbo rainbow to discover more about the four seasons by matching objects to the different times of the year. They will investigate the different types of clothes we wear, foods we eat, holidays we celebrate or changes in nature from season to season.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 18 months up to 3 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
