Here are some amazing offline coding games and activities to try right now with your kids. They will help your children learn about binary code, building algorithms, and so much more. You will be amazed at how much even your young children will learn about coding as they explore these coding games.
Coding Games for Kids
Building Algorithms Based on Children’s Books
Your children can sequence the events from children’s books that you read to them or they read on their own. Then they can use one of the algorithm sheets I have created to connect the events by drawing arrows in the empty boxes connecting the effects. They will learn about using the commands up, down, left and right.
Building Algorithms Based on Science Concepts
Life cycles and other science concepts follow a sequence. They are great to use to create algorithms for. Your children can make finding the short route to the next step in the cycle a coding game.
Exploring Binary Code
Binary code is the simple form of computer code. The coding games and activities below are a great way for kids to explore binary.
