Busy Things for families FAQs

What is Busy Things?

Busy Things for Families is a multi-award-winning collection of FUN educational games and activities to help kids learn between the ages of 3 and 11.


Full of quirky characters, interesting sound effects, animations and humour - our aim is for children to be having so much fun, they won't even realise that they're learning!


We support subjects across the whole primary curriculum! Including phonics, English, maths, science, geography, history, art, climate change, coding & much more.


How does Busy Things help to support learning at home?

Playing Busy Things can help children to practice, reinforce and develop the skills that they are learning at nursery or primary school.

Whilst children think they are just playing; they’ll actually be improving their math skills, their reading and their problem-solving skills. They’ll be developing curiosity, increasing their concentration and getting a big confidence boost... they’ll be learning to love learning!

Our activities are all directly linked to the early years and primary curriculum so you can be confident that they are working towards their curriculum objectives whilst they are playing.


Is Busy Things Teacher approved?

Well, this is a recent teacher testimonial… “My children absolutely love it!... It covers all subject areas, so you know you don’t need anything else to cover the curriculum safely and in a brilliantly entertaining way.” Andrea Farrel, Birdham CE Primary School


All of our activities have all been created with the help of teacher advisors, to ensure that they meet curriculum objectives.


Busy Things is currently being used in 1000s of schools worldwide to help deliver their early years and primary curriculum.


Can Busy Things help with my child’s homework?

Yes! Busy Things includes a great variety of resources. Whether they’ve been asked to practise their multiplication or write about a Roman Soldier, you will more than likely find something on Busy Things to help! Use the handy search function to see what’s available.


(If you can’t find what you’re looking for please contact us. If we can’t find something suitable, we’ll add it to the to-do list!)


Do I need a separate subscription for each of my children?

No! A Busy Things for families subscription includes up to 5 children per household.


Each child has their own profile filled with content relevant to their age. You can customise these to suit each child's individual abilities and learning preferences.

Isn’t screen-time bad for children?

We believe that depends on what’s on the screen!


As with everything in life, moderation is the key. A few minutes here and there spent playing engaging, educational games? That sounds like a productive guilt-free use of screen-time to us!


Are there any adverts or additional costs involved?

Absolutely not. Busy Things is a safe environment for children there are no adverts, no extra purchase options, just fun educational games and activities!


What devices are compatible with Busy Things?

There are some games that will work on a phone screen but we recommend playing on larger screens where possible.
