A Closer Look
A child that can identify letters and understand the sounds they make is ready to start making their own words. Sounding and blending is where the fun begins. In this My Busy Bots bag children can begin making the all important consonant-vowel-consonant words with jumbo letter beads and move onto harder ones as they progress.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 5 – 8 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
My Busy Bots create award-winning busy bags containing fun, educational busy bag activities that will encourage learning through play. They engage your little ones and keep them having fun, learning and occupied (handy if you need a bit of time to chat to a friend, do paperwork or enjoy a cup of (hot!) tea, or to wee alone!).
Busy bags are an excellent resource for all parents and can be used either at home or on the go – they’re perfect for keeping children happy and absorbed while you’re in a restaurant, waiting rooms, airports, travelling, or at home answering that crucial email, cooking or folding laundry. They are also a really fun and interactive way for you to get involved in your child’s learning journey and enjoy some one-on-one time together.
All of My Busy Bots activities come in their own brightly coloured, waterproof bag. Each one includes a fun activity with all the relevant materials that you need (no need to buy anything else) and an information card. The info card is there for you, to help you offer your child guidance as they play (and develop key skills), don’t worry if they don’t get it right away – they will get there! Let them lead and explore their own abilities too, children see things differently to how we do, so let them go with it.
My Busy Bots info cards are a way to help you get the most out of each activity. You will find the following on the info card:
How to use the activity
How to extend the activity as your child develops or for more capable children
A list of all the skills being developed whilst doing the activity (you will be surprised how much they are learning!)
