DIY Bottle caps coding game for kids
Today we got up late. We ate, then took our Beagle out for a walk in the woods near our house.
Before noon, we came up with an idea for a new game. Because both Daddy and I work in IT, we thought about making a no-screen coding game for kids. Inspired by Code-a-Pillar, we tried to create a simple, yet entertaining educational game. We built it using a lot of water bottle caps and stickers.
Our DIY Bottle Caps Coding Game helps kids to:
- develop problem-solving skills
- anticipate and avoid problems
- learn perseverance
- use logic
- improve their structural thinking
- learn how to create things that work
- develop creativity.
See full instructions on how to make it and how to play it here: DYI Bottle Caps Game for Kids.
Our daughter had a lot of fun playing the coding game. It is a fun way to teach your kids the basics of programming, without using a screen.
In the afternoon we played with flour and made some delicious muffins together. Later, we watched The Bremen Town Musicians, an online kids’ play.
It was a quiet and relaxing day. Stay safe!
