Emojify the holidays

My computer is marking “Emojify” as a spelling error.

So much for 21st Century Learning.

Today, an Hour of Code for the younger (or older) crowd.  We know emoji are everywhere but can you ever find the perfect one when you want it?  I know I can’t.  They don’t make them handsome enough to show the real me!

The Made with Code group from Google has this terrific little exercise.  It’s called Emojify the holidays.  There’s no writing a game or other application as a result.  In this case, you’ll use a block based interface to build your own emoji.

The blogs make things easy.  Just drag the appropriate one out to the editor.

In the process, you’ll have to work with variables, encapsulation, sequences, and objects.  Plus, there are layers there to let you place things on top of other things to get you desired effect.

There are a nice choice of characters; I went with Rebecca.

Then, of course, I had to experiment with everything.  Well, lots of things.

My result?  Let me blow you a kiss.


Of course, sharing results is always important and that feature is here as well.

Viewing the code and have it clickable via context was a nice touch.

Is that mathematics and coordinate work I see in there?

Have fun.
