Valentine's Day is here and it's time to spread the love!


Kodable's 2022 Valentine’s Day Coding Activity lets students code and decorate their very own Valentine maze to send to their loved ones. The activity is available on both the web and the iOS app from February 7th-February 21st.

Please note: if using the Kodable App on iOS, you'll need to update to our latest version (14.6) to access the activity.

How do my students create their Valentine?

  1. Make sure your students have either completed Kodable Basics or reached a code rank of 3 if you've unassigned the Kodable Basics course.

  2. The activity will be visible on student profiles when they log in once they are a code rank 3 or higher.

3. Students will watch the video, select "Code Your Valentine", and follow the Maze Maker prompts to complete their Valentine maze. Once the maze is tested and solved, students will enter a note and share their Valentine with someone they love.

How is the Valentine delivered when a student "Shares" it?

Kodable will send Valentines to all e-mail addresses of registered Parent accounts.

If a child's family has not registered for a free Kodable Parent account or is not connected to their child's School profile yet, they will need to register to receive the Valentine.

How to invite parents to connect with their child's school Kodable Account.

You have two options for inviting families to participate in the activity:

Option 1: Download and print a handout with instructions for each student
