What Can Your Child Do Over the Holidays? Code!

The winter holidays are fast approaching and children will be out of school with time on their hands, looking for things to do. We hope they can get outdoors and exercise, read a good book, and spend quality time with the family. They can also code!

We also know that today’s generation will gravitate toward their electronic devices to play games, which in moderation is fine. But what if their time spent online could be less passive and more productive? What if your child could become a creator instead of just a consumer? 

Tynker has the answer. Our award-winning coding program enables kids to make video games and apps while making screen time fun through short, gamified lessons. By putting their creativity first, they can also learn how to code their own music, art, websites, and more!

A couple of weeks of vacation is more than enough time for your child to ramp up their coding skills and complete some really amazing projects. Have your child try these fun seasonal projects:

Snowflake Maker is a block coding course in which you can exercise your creativity and coding skills by designing a snowflake! You’ll use coding concepts like functions, simple events, and simple messaging along the way.


Your child can try another one of our beginner projects with this built-in tutorial:

Have you ever gone ice skating? It’s a blast! In Ice Art, your child can turn ice skating into a work of art. Just click and drag on the screen to steer a penguin across the ice and create whatever you want.
