We couldn’t wait to share them with you whether it’s you first time or 10th time playing Kodable during the Hour of Code. We gathered them all up in one place so you can pick your favorites and get prepared for the Hour of Code 2021.
If you’re looking to learn more about the Hour of Code or what the heck it even is, check out our Parent Hour of Code Guide. You’ll learn all about this worldwide coding event and how you and your child can participate at home.
Our goal is to inspire and encourage as many kids as we can to discover the wonders of coding. To do so, Kodable’s Hour of Code activities are FREE during Hour of Code week December 6th – December 12th 2021! -> Play Here.

Intro to Programming
Recommended grades K-5 (Pre-Reader)
Kodable is a self-guided game that introduces kids 5+ to programming basics. Having a teacher or parent nearby is optimal, but not necessary. Happy koding! Students will be guided to the world of the Fuzzes and can choose from four coding games in Kodable.
Find some good ones to try? We hope so! Don’t forget, Hour of Code is a busy week and we want to make sure you’re prepared. We’ve put together an Hour of Code checklist for parents and educators to make sure your event with Kodable runs as smoothly as possible.
Remember, completing the Hour of Code is a BIG DEAL and we like to celebrate big deals with certificates! Make sure to print your child’s Hour of Code certificate and share it with us on social media so we can brag! Use hashtags #Kodable #HourOfCode.
