We all need a little help keeping our kids busy during this stay-at-home period, and Bing has plenty to offer to help out families with this. As well as over 100 episodes available on iPlayer, Emmy award-winning and BAFTA nominated family favourite Bing offers pre-school children and families multiple ways to keep busy and entertained during this stay-at-home period. With activity sheets to download and games to play, Bing is helping families who will be spending more time together at home in the coming weeks. My preschooler is a big fan of Bing, so these have come in handy for us and I hope you find them useful too!
Bing Watch, Play, Learn App
This app is great when you want something fun and educational to entertain your little ones. I have been trying it out with my 3 year old, N, and we loved the variety of content – having multiple games, including colouring activities, memory match, dress up games and more, alongside the video content means that there is plenty included to keep it fresh. I also appreciate that there are no adverts, and the app is very easy to use
Sometimes while her older brothers are all doing online schooling on their laptops, my youngest wants to feel like she can join in too so playing a few educational games like these during that time is really nice for her.

Sula’s Magic Wand Craft
Bing is great for inspiring lots of simple and fun crafts with the kids, like when we made nature pictures inspired by the Bing Nature Explorer’s episode or when we carved a Bing pumpkin. We’ve also made “rippy tissue pictures” and made rubbings, both inspired by Bing episodes. Another great Bing craft you can make with the kids is Sula’s Sparkle Magic Wand, with these instructions below from the Bing website – one of just many ideas you can find there.
