Bring out the creative side of your Early Years and Primary children with our art and music teacher resources! With Busy Things for Schools, you can access exciting and colourful games and activities that will engage students aged 3–11, all aligned to the curriculum objectives for their age group.

Early Years children will enjoy creating sounds and creating artworks at the touch of a screen or click of a mouse. Our tools are simple and intuitive, so even pre-school children can produce impressive results! We also have a selection of EYFS music games that will encourage budding musicians to start exploring sound and making music.

For Key Stage 1 and 2, our Primary school music teaching resources will let older children hear how musical instruments sound and start teaching the basics of musical notation, which they can use to begin creating more complex sound compositions. We also have fun art activities for Primary school that will allow your student to produce their own mini masterpieces using our drawing tools, which include brushes, shapes, stamps, clipart, symmetry tools and more.

All of our art and music teacher resources have been designed to tie in with the National Primary and Early Years Curriculum, and each one has been carefully vetted by our team of expert teacher advisors to ensure it suits both your needs and the needs of your class.
