April 12th, 2020

🔔🔔Happy Easter Holiday 🔔🔔 ... is a special holiday in many countries around the world.

In France, Julie, her family and friends usually enjoy looking for chocolates hidden everywhere! Chocolates of all shapes : eggs🐣, bells🔔, bunnies🐰, chicks🐤...

Here in South Africa, it is also a very big holiday with religious celebrations and gatherings with family and friends.

Today, Julie and her younger friend Azo (shorter version of Azomthanda) were stuck at home with no chocolate near to be found 😌

So they created an " Easter Egg Hunt" game !

How can I start animating stories using Scratch?

The first step is to get to ... Scratch !

Scratch is a coding platform you can access online but also offline depending on the type of device type you are using.

Second step, select a character for your story.

In Scratch, we call this character a "sprite". You can have multiple sprites if you like but let's start with one 😉

To help you on this first challenge, below are links to tutorials on how to create and animate a story using Scratch!
