Looking for something to help you support your children's learning at school?
"Busy Things has transformed the way I educate my daughter at home. She is a visual learner and Busy Things captures her imagination in a way, no other educational site has. I’m able to follow up her learning by using the colourful resources which keeps her actively engaged with the task. Most of all, it is a fun and engaging, she’s always excited to play her ‘monster games’ and my daughter doesn’t even realise that she is learning. I would highly recommend families to trial it, they won’t regret it!"

Here are some of the many features we've designed with families in mind...
Our Parent tools give you the know-how and means to support and enhance your child's learning.
Activities to suit all learning styles
We know every child in unique! And so we have a range of activity types to suit different types of learner.
Save and print your children's work
Each child has a My Files area of their own where parents can find and print saved files.
Parent resources to enjoy together
Within the activity menus you will sometimes find a Parent resources folder. These contain resources supporting the current subject area that you and your children can enjoy together.
Personalise content to meet the needs of your children
Within an activity the Parent Things bar allows you to read about and customise the settings of the activity your children are playing.
Curriculum aligned and searchable content
The Curriculum browser helps you find activities suitable for your children. It also shows you the curriculum objectives your children will be working towards at school.
Optimised for all devices in your home!
You can use Busy Things on tablets, laptops and desktop computers.
Use with up to 5 children at once!
You can create an individual profile for each of your children (up to 5 per subscription). Your children’s ages are entered when the profiles are created and content is automatically selected and configured to suit them. You can then customise the content further to match your children’s needs. You can easily adjust the content level as they grow older.
Create custom phonics resources in a jiffy!
You can use our Resource Maker to create a wide variety of paper-based games and worksheets to help your children learn to read and write.
Produce fabulous homework and keep a record of your children's creations!
Use our templates, tools and clipart to create images and written work on common school topics. From the Romans to Rainforests we're confident Busy Things will have what you need to create a fabulous piece of work. Your children's creations are automatically saved into their own My Files area for safe keeping. You can print out their work and stick it on the fridge or send it to school as homework!
