|FUN|giraffe number sequencing busy bag

When I had the opportunity to create a giraffe themed kids activity for the world giraffe day quirky blog hop I remembered this Clare's tots dinosaur busy bag which I really liked when she shared on Instagram recently, I thought the long neck on the giraffe would be ideal.

You will need
10 wooden pegs
Thick cardboard
A marker pen
2 Googly eyes (optional)

I started off by drawing a simple giraffe shape on card and cutting it out.

T then helped me paint the yellow, we mixed a little orange in to make it a bit darker.

We painted the pegs yellow and brown and left them to dry.
Once dry, I added the spots, face and numbers.
We've actually made this for a friend who is 2 1/2 but T had a lot of fun playing with it, adding the numbers in sequence forwards and backwards.
{yes, that's a rather funny expression T!}
This activity is great for number recognition, counting and fine motor skill development.
