New week, new #CodePenChallenge!

We jumped right into the deep end with last week's challenge prompt: Jellyfish! Check out the Pens from the challenge in our Jellyfish collection 🌊

Week Two Theme: Pandas 🐼

For week two, we're celebrating Pandas! Both the lovable, lazy black & white giant panda and their adorable namesake, the red panda.

Your Challenge

Build a Pen inspired by pandas. Showcase giant pandas, celebrate the red panda, or "highlight" panda syntax.

How to Participate

Create a Pen and tag it codepenchallenge and the weekly tag cpc-pandas. We'll gather those Pens into a collection and share our favorites on Twitter and Instagram (Use the #CodePenChallenge tag on Twitter and Instagram as well).


  1. Combine the animals everyone loves with the thing every web developer needs: a great image gallery.
  2. Illustrate or animate pandas with CSS or JavaScript. You could go low-poly style, or take it in a huggy-laser direction!
  3. Take a little detour out of the animal kingdom and make something inspired by the Panda syntax highlighting theme.


  1. Grab images for your gallery from our Unsplash photo search, built right into the Pen editor!
  2. Gather some inspiration from the CodePen community's best panda Pens.
  3. Check out the color scheme of the Panda syntax theme.
