Busy Little Kids is an easy-to-use resource for parents and carers that provides an extensive library of activities that are not only fun, but designed to cultivate important developmental skills including speech, hand-eye coordination and motor skills.

The Busy Little Kids App contains 110 creative, easy and low-cost ideas designed to keep children active and inventive. Each activity is accompanied by a photograph to help inspire creativity. Packed with games, crafts and experiments in two categories - rainy day and sunny day ideas, with an option to save your favourite activities for easy reference at a later date. Fun for most ages.

** No in-app purchases or third party advertising**

Each activity can be adapted to suit the age of your child with a parents involvement. Alternatively you can refer to the suggested age group icon in the top right corner of each screen. Once you have chosen your activity group, you can decide if you would like to:

IMAGINE – pretend play encouraging imagination
CREATE – art, experiments, craft and games
MOVE – physical activities to get little bodies moving


No need to dread those rainy days anymore, the Busy Little Kids App contains great ideas to keep your children entertained indoors. Try some imagination activities, exercise and games. Go on a pretend holiday, make shadow animals or musical jars. Create your very own story squares, make some paper chains or try your hand at flower pressing. Each rainy day idea is accompanied by a photograph to help inspire your creativity.

Make the most of the beautiful weather with an extensive list of outdoor activities to entertain your little ones. Keep the kids busy and active with our comprehensive list of things to do. Make pet rocks, try some sunshine reading or play the colour match game. With creative ideas such as a backyard sound safari, a dinosaur dig, or a mini carwash, both children and parents alike will love the Busy Little Kids App ideas.

The Love It option allows you to save your favourite ideas in a folder for quick and easy reference. When you're stuck for inspiration while wrangling the kids you can simply open your saved activities. The folder holds up to 20 of your loved ideas. Just delete when you're done, so easy!

Bringing back old school fun!

When I'm at my wit's end trying to think of simple and cheap activities to keep the kids entertained, this app is a lifesaver. A great reminder to go back to the old school fun that I enjoyed as a kid! My kids love it when it's time to check what the app has lined up for us today. All activities are quick and easy to set up and usually require items you would already have or can be found in the garden or kitchen cupboard. I feel like my kids benefit from the activities a lot more (both mentally and physically) than they would from playing on the iPad or being couch potatoes. Mums job done! Highly recommended!

Fave App!!

This app has saved me over the holidays. I'm a busy mum of two and even coming up with obvious games is sometimes a struggle for me when my mind is racing. Instead of just getting the paints out, we love the idea of zip lock bag painting. My 4 year old loves flicking through the app and picking out his own activity!! Win, win!!

Life saver

This app is a life saver. As a busy working parent it's hard to come up with ideas to do with the kids at the drop of a hat.
This app is a great quick reference that reminds me of how simple and cheap it is to have old fashion fun with my kids without relying on technology. The indoor/outdoor options are great for all conditions. Thx BLK.
