Under the Christmas Tree Bundle | Three Busy Bags

Regular price £22.00 £19.50 Sale

This is about the age that we have to step back and allow our little ones a chance at decorating the Christmas tree (even if it means all the baubles end up on only 3 branches way at the bottom and the rest of the tree has bits of “wonderful” festive art work thrown at it). But besides periodically moving a decoration or two without anyone noticing, the excitement that builds each day as Christmas gets closer, is such a special feeling, one that we will always treasure.

Our busy bags make unique Christmas gifts for kids – perfect as stocking fillers or for under the tree. Not only will our activities give your little one something to engage in over the busy festive season, but they will also help them to continue learning through play. The best part is there is no mess, sticky bits, glue or paint to clean up, hurrah!

These activities are 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.

Bag 1: Pinch a pompom

Squeezing, pinching, picking, sorting, counting and colour matching! There’s endless fun to be had with this engaging My Busy Bots bag. While your little one is strengthening their fine motor skills with their tweezers, they will also be either sorting colours or counting out pompoms.

Contents:

1 Information card with instructions, ideas to extend the activity and list of skills being developed

  • 6 Different coloured silicone cups
  • 1 Set of tweezers
  • 24 Pompoms in different colours and sizes
  • 6 Laminated number discs
  • 1 Brightly coloured storage bag

Bag 2: Something beginning with

“Moon, Monkey, Mouse!” Each child learns at a different pace, especially when it comes to letter sounds. This is why it’s essential we keep it fun and light-hearted. In this My Busy Bots bag little ones are introduced to amusing characters and images, which will help them identify the letter sound for each card, and place that letter on its matching card.

Contents:

  • 1 Information card with instructions, ideas to extend the activity and list of skills being developed
  • 26 Laminated letter sound cards A-Z
  • 26 Coloured magnetic letters

Bag 3: Taking shape

All children are drawn to brightly coloured things, they love to touch, hold and experience their learning first-hand. In this My Busy Bots bag, little ones use fun coloured shape blocks to explore different shapes and colours. As they match the shapes to the pictures, rockets zoom to the moon, crocodiles go snap and fish begin to swim in the sea!
