Seasonal Project Highlights
Since the beginning of this year, Tynker makers have coded over 1,779,488 projects! Among these projects are the much-loved seasonal projects, where kids practice their critical thinking and creativity skills as they transform their ideas into coding projects that they build and share!
In this article, we want to highlight just a few of the excellent projects published by the community. We’ve seen a variety of excellent projects stemming from the seasonal templates, including February’s Candy Hearts, March’s Pi Day Art, April’s Rabbit Round-up and Plant Trees, and our Black History Month project!
Has your child tried these seasonal projects yet? Share these projects with your child and inspire them to make their own! Click on the image for each project and have your child sign in to Tynker to view the project page.
In this project, sent for Valentines Day coding, kids customize and build their own candy heart game. They can write their own messages on the candy hearts, change the background, and program the motion of the candy box!
Pi Day Art
Check out how this user made their numbers appear in quick succession in a cool shape!
Sent on Earth Day, with this project, your child can program a fun game where they plant trees to lower the CO2 levels in the atmosphere. From your parent dashboard, you can share their games with friends and family to remind them to make a positive impact on the planet! Coders can make this project using either block coding or Python.
This maker culled other visual elements to create an interesting background!
Black History Month
This project gives kids the opportunity to practice multimedia and storytelling skills! They can choose a famous African American and explain that person’s story. Kids can customize the images and text as they tell their person’s story!
This maker does a great job of telling the story of Mae Jemison, the first African American woman to travel in space!

It’s a whole family of rabbits!
