The Puffin Browser is often required for mobile devices - download it from the relevant app store.

Have a sneak peek at what Busy Things has to enjoy.

These five activity areas divide up 120 different games. Each game promotes the learning of an essential skill.
The games are aimed 3-6 yr olds, so are bright and constantly moving…even the pattern as the games load is exciting, so their interest is not lost whilst setting -up

Behind the Creative Development button, choose again from these two.

Choose Exploring Media and Materials, and have another 17 games to chose from. Running the cursor over a button, (or touching on a tablet) tells you what each game is and makes even the choosing fun.

BusyThings works on iPhone and Android without the Puffin browser, the view is different and there are fewer 'games', but is essentially the same.
