Code Kingdoms Teaches Javascript Coding in a Way That's Fun for Kids (and Adults Too...)

If you want your kids to be the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg, then you need to teach them programming and simple coding as early as now. Well, with the proper guidance, and the proper tool, they can be the next big thing on the techie world.

To help you out, let us suggest a free and fun way to teach your kids programming and computational thinking.... Let us introduce to you, Code Kingdoms!

Code Kingdoms is targeted towards six- to 13-year olds and looks very much like your everyday puzzle adventure game. Choose an animal, walk around a kingdom saving animals through puzzles. The difference is most of the puzzles require kids to use code elements to solve the puzzles. At first this is through dragging-and-dropping code snippets, but as they progress, kids will be typing in code themselves.

Besides teaching actual JavaScript through play, Code Kingdoms also helps kids develop problem-solving skills and the encouragement to keep pushing on when they’re faced with a challenge in the game—much like programmers often have to push through challenging walls.

There’s a school-specific version being used in the UK and potentially coming to the US and other countries in the future. But for home use, the app is free to play on the web or to download for iOS.
