Grab & Go Bags

The tasks in Flying Sprout’s Grab & Go collection (available here) are targeted towards early childhood and lower primary students; children aged 4-7 years of age. Created by a primary school teacher, all Grab & Go activities aims to make learning fun and easy for children.

Currently each activity in this collection targets a maths skill. They are all simple, yet effective activities best undertaken for 10 minutes at a time. The short, sharp nature of the activities mean children can practise important skills without becoming bored and losing interest.

Each colourful and visually appealing activity kit contains a task card as well as all materials needed to complete the activity, neatly packed into a splash proof plastic zip bag.

The individual task card in each kit provides details on the targeted skills, suggested age, materials needed and activity instructions as well as extension option/s to provide an extra challenge. Every card in the collection also has a cute animal mascot so the activities are both easily identifiable and motivating.

While each task card has it’s own unique cute mascot, the backgrounds also vary. Each background scene targets a specific area of mathematics:

  • Farmyard – Number awareness
  • Arid Landscape – First 100 Numbers
  • Jungle – Number operations
  • Woodlands – Measurement
  • Snow – Shapes

What Does Each Bag Include?

In addition to a laminated A6 sized activity card, each Grab & Go Bag includes at least one of the following items:

  • 10 frames
  • dice
  • number cards
  • playing cards
  • paddle pop sticks
  • counters

  • puppets

A convenient, splash proof zip bag holds all materials safely inside so you can pop the kit in your bag and rest assured nothing will fall out or get wet.
