Create a Creature


The theme for Children’s Book Week 2020 is ‘Curious Creatures, Wild Minds’

Make a “Create a Creature” game using Scratch. Scratch is a block coding platform designed specifically to teach children how to code. It can be as simple or as complicated as you want.

Check out the video to see an example game created by the Libraries team.

Visit the Scratch website.

Click on the blue “see inside” button to look at the code for each “Sprite” (or character – the body parts, the text and all the parts of the introductory animation) and see how it was coded to do its actions. If you are logged in, you can click on the green “remix” button to rework the game and use the code and sprites for your own game.

If you have any questions or get stuck with your coding, send an email to
