The starter project came with several costumes for each of the sprites.

You can choose one that you like.

You can edit costumes in the paint editor.

Click on the sprite, and you will see a box around the whole sprite.

To edit the sprite click the ungroup tool.

This lets you change individual pieces of the sprite.

They are great opportunities to learn.

If you make a mistake, use the undo button and try again.

Deleting a costume by pressing the x in the top right corner, or start from scratch by deleting all the costumes and painting your own using the paint new costume button.
