Stuck inside on a snowy day? Try this fun winter coding project!

For those of us in the Northern hemisphere, it’s winter! That can mean lots of rainy and snowy days stuck inside – the perfect opportunity to code an awesome game in Tynker!

Your students can program Snowball Hero, a fun game where you need to defend yourself from the goblin minions with your only weapon: snowballs. Kids follow step-by-step instructions that guide them through each piece of making this game, from setting up the physics properties to throwing the snowballs!

This project is best for students who have at least some experience coding with Tynker.
