Busy things for busy young minds

busy thingsJust in time for the school holidays, your library has added a new online resource. Busy Things is a collection of educational games for three to seven year olds.

"busythings games promise to educate and entertain young children. Designed primarily for 3 to 7 year old, we have worked closely with both teachers and young children to make sure our games prove popular."

Games cover key areas of:

  • creative development
  • problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
  • knowledge and understanding of the world
  • communication, language and literacy

Busy Things has been around for ten years and was originally developed in the UK in conjunction with schools and based on the Early Learning Curriculum.

And you can access it FREE with your library card.  Its available on the library website, from the library AND from home.

To check it out (and its fun for everyone, even big kids), on the library website - mouseover Online Resources and click on Busy Things!
