Discover exciting coding games for kids with Busy Things! Our coding games are perfect for introducing basic programming concepts to young children, taking them through the principles of coding step-by-step. Children can quickly create, run and debug simple programs, all while having loads of fun!

Our funky Beard Man character is sure to engage your child as they learn to make him to walk, dance and collect stars. In more technical terms they will learn the coding basics of repeat loops, conditionals, events and variables. They’ll be creating their own “call and response” game in no time!

Busy Code programs are built by linking simple blocks together — drag and drop the blocks to assemble a program, and watch as they snap together like jigsaw pieces!

All of our games have been checked and approved by our expert team of teacher advisors, so you can be sure your little ones are learning key skills that will help them at school.

Busy Things for Families is easy to access on a computer, phone or tablet.
