I created an Arduino drawing robot for a workshop to help teen girls get interested in STEM topics (see https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Drawing-Robot/). The robot was designed to use Turtle-style programming commands such as forward(distance) and turn(angle) to create interesting pasterns.
Both the "Anna and Elsa" and the "Artist" Hour of Code tutorials use commands like "move" and "turn" to move the characters around the screen. As the tutorial progresses, you learn the power of loops and nested loops. In step 12 of Anna for example, you use nested loops to create a snowflake patern. At the end of the tutorial, you are given a blank slate to experiment with.
