Indoor Fun for Frigid Days
During the holiday season, lots of people wish for a "White Christmas" but what do you do when the children have gotten too cold or the "white" is ice instead of snow? I recently discovered Code Hopper and it is great for getting little bodies moving indoors while introducing them to coding. You can find it on Amazon for about $25 dollars. But I caught mine on sale a month or so ago.
Preschoolers and Kindergartners (I haven't tried it with older children yet) learn sequencing based on the mats that they lay on the floor and then completing the tasks it asks them to do. I recommend having try it out on their own without set instructions first so that they can get a feel for it. My kiddo was very excited to try it out and is very independent and wanted to do it himself a few times before hearing other ways to play.
It comes with a parent guide that you can use to help your child with coding while keeping them active. The foam mats are soft and bright and link together to create a flowchart of movement.
The mats are double sided so there are multiple ways to play. That said, I was happy that I grabbed two sets as it made the fun last a lot longer. If your little is really into coding (and moving :) I suggest getting two as well.
