🎄🎄 Great work on your Christmas Tree yesterday!
What is so special about them is the variety of decorations 🎊✨ and blinking lights we can add.
Our goal for today's challenge is to animate a scene where you can add blinking decorations using Scratch.
To do so:
Choose a background scene or create you own. Note that it does not have to be Christmas related😊
Select or draw your Sprite(s) that will be acting as decorations.
Animate the Sprite(s) to make them blink!

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!
Let the fun begin !
Don't forget to share the link to your project, code or even a snapshot of your pixel art Christmas Tree on social media with the hashtag #STEAMCuriousCalendar2020 and tag me with @steam.and.curious so we can all view your amazing work!
