Christmas Challenge

Can you help Santa save Christmas?

✔️ Design & develop your own Christmas game

✔️ Easy to follow video tutorials

✔️ Learn & apply skills in maths & computing

✔️ Created by specialist teachers

✔️ Instant access anytime during the Christmas holiday

✔️ Challenges all abilities at their own pace

This year, at the Digital Wizards Academy, we're teaching children  how to create their very own Christmas game from home!

What age should my child be?

The activities are suitable for children age 6 upwards. Younger children may need some support from an older person.

We have also included some extra features and ideas for older children to include in their own game.

A step by step video guide for children to follow to create their very own Christmas game whilst learning new skills from home.

What is the Christmas challenge?

What will my child need?

Access to a Windows computer or Apple Mac is recommended. The challenge can be completed on a tablet but it is a bit trickier for the children to use.  An internet connection is also required to view the tutorials.

Who are Digital Wizards?

Digital Wizards work with hundreds of children every week, delivering a variety of workshops which allow children to develop their digital skills in a fun and engaging way.

How else can you support my child?

We run after school enrichment clubs, in school curriculum workshops, holiday workshops, birthday parties and provide training and support to primary school teachers and leaders.
