To use your Coding Wand, click on the PLAY tab to open up creations that you can just play with by waving your wand. No coding required!
Follow along with the instructions and use your Wand to draw and paint, levitate a feather, make beans go big and small, vibrate your wand, and juggle a bludger.
Two rules to remember:
–The button side is “up” for the Coding Wand.
–Click the button once to recenter your Coding Wand cursor – the +
To recenter your Coding Wand cursor – the little + symbol – click the action button on the top of the Coding Wand once. As long as you’re moving the cursor, the Coding Wand is sending its X, Y, twist data, and more to the screen, and you can code and create with it.
To trigger spellcasting, hold down the action button, make a gesture, and then release. Any code you’ve put in a “When [gesture]” block will be triggered!
What else can my Coding Wand do?
Your Coding Wand can vibrate and flash in many colors. You can wave it to make effects on screen, or trigger a spell motion by holding down the action button, waving, and releasing, to unlock even more cool effects.

Can I also twist it to make effects?
Yes! Head into the Coding Wand blocks, and pick up the rotation block, and change it to “roll.” As you twist clockwise and anti-clockwise, you can change the pitch of a song, gravity, color, size, or almost anything else.
