Kodu Game Lab is an amazing aplication that I have used for many years with young students (Ages 7-10) to introduce them to coding and video game design. Kodu allows students to easily create a world, add characters, and code. Students use a visual-based language in Kodu to add coding blocks to the characters to create gameplay.
You can download Kodu onto your computer for free at https://www.kodugamelab.com/.
If you want to get your child started with Kodu, you will find a video below with activities that introduce students to the basics in Kodu.
