Code a Fun Burger-Building Game for Father’s Day!

Father’s Day is a special time to celebrate all the fathers and other role models in your kids’ or students’ lives. It’s a day for thanking those adults who have helped them grow and become who they want to be. There’s no better way to celebrate Father’s Day than by coding a game to build dad’s favorite food—burgers! Once kids follow an easy tutorial to build the game, Burger Bonanza becomes a fun activity they can play with Dad to create the ideal burger.

Kids will develop debugging and logical reasoning skills as they create their game! Using programming concepts such as conditional logic, loops and variables, they design the game play where the bottom burger bun collects the right toppings as it moves. Then they add code to customize the burger toppings, background music and greeting. As they complete coding their game, kids will see a direct relationship between their code and how their game functions.

Your kids or students can personalize their project by customizing their toppings, adding background music, and modifying their code. They can even write a personalized message for dad or another role model. Then they can take a screenshot and easily send their project image as a Father’s Day gift!
