This little busy bag is a fun activity to help with counting, colour matching and fine motor skills for young children.

You will need:

  • Mini Craft Pegs
  • Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • 5 to 10 Popsicle sticks
  • Pens
  1. Paint each one a different colour and leave to dry. Once it is dry write a number at the bottom of the peg.
  2. Clip the right amount of pegs onto the popsicle sticks and paint the clips the same colour as their corresponding popsicle stick.

When it is ready, separate all the pegs from the sticks and let your little one put them back.

This activity may help with the development of:

  • Fine motor skills
  • Cognitive skills
  • Counting and number recognition
