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 and Maths patterns.
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.
