This is a tutorial for how to make a dress up game. Students make multiple copies of the same sprite (character) and create an algorithm to change to the next costume when the sprite is clicked.

The main programming concept taught in this tutorial is changing a part of a program when the mouse is clicked.

Optional challenge activities are:

  • To add text and other shapes to the sprites as they change
  • To create ‘clothes’ for the main sprite which change to a random colour when clicked.
