Code Your Own Pranks to Celebrate April Fools’ Day!

April Fools’ Day is the perfect time to play fun pranks on friends and family – this year, we’re giving your kids TWO pranks to code. They can learn to code an underwater treasure hunt with an unexpected twist, or surprise Codey with a mischievous present. Can they come up with a way to make the pranks even funnier?
