Learn to program & help Spry!

Spry has an exciting fundraising opportunity! is a monthly subscription that teaches children how to program their own apps and games. Each month, a kid gets either an email or a package with 10+ new games and apps that they code themselves. They can customize their games however they like and share them with friends and family.

With each new Bitsbox subscription ($20 - $33 monthly), Bitsbox will donate $25 to Spry! So your kids, students, nieces, etc get an exciting and fun educational experience each month, and Spry gets money!

Here's a short video, but works like this:
1) A kid (ages 3+) chooses an app card.
2) They type the code, line by line, into the app on
3) After they finish, they can do the challenges or customize their app.
4) They share their finished game with their friends and family, it works on all devices! Here's one of my games.

If you think this is cool, please consider telling your students and other kids in your life about it. I use it as an extension activity for my classes and the kids love it! I also tutor some kids with it and they get super excited when it arrives in the mail!

Here's a flyer with more info. Anyone making a purchase should use the code JOHNSPRY for a $5 discount and then our school gets $25!
