Create your own fun hop-skotch with a twist.
This game allows you to create your own games, applying the easy to understand logic of a coder with active fun. Kids as young as kindergarten will get engrossed, following instructions and patterns until they reach the end of the arranged foam squares. With commands like "Kick a leg" and "Do you see a circle?" this game functions like a "build your own adventure" computer code, allowing for differing results depending on the set up. The kit includes instructions for adults, to help their kids get even more out of the activity - not really necessary you've already worked out kids can program your phone better than you.
Five Year Old boys have loads of energy and will appreciate presents that involve lots of running around. They also enjoy being creative and making things, following simple instructions. They are very interested in space and dinosaurs, and anything with wheels is also a winner.
