Code with Your Child for Father’s Day

Code with Your Child for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a great time for your kids to spend quality time with their father or other important role models or mentors in their lives. Together, they can make a fun coding game about adding mustaches, glasses, hats, and more to their dad’s face.

Your child can follow easy step-by-step instructions to upload a picture of their dad’s face, then draw items that can be added to the face. Now the fun part: they program the items they’ve added so that the person playing the game can resize the items and add them to the face.

You’ll end up with a hilarious and very fun project for Dad so he can try out all sorts of different personal styles.

How to Play: Click the “Change” button to select an item to add to the face, and the “+” or “-” buttons to change the size. Then you can stamp it on the face to add it. Click “Wiggle” for a surprise! When your child makes this project, they can add their own items and a picture of their dad.
