Simple Projects using Python Turtle Module


As we know, we can do make many things with Python. There is one module from which we can make some cool stuff. Python turtle module is a powerful tool for creating graphics and animations. It provides a simple interface for drawing shapes and lines on a canvas and allows for easy manipulation of those shapes using code. With a turtle, you can create complex designs, games, and simulations. The module is particularly useful for teaching programming concepts to beginners, as it is easy to learn and provides instant visual feedback. Whether a beginner or an experienced programmer, the turtle can help you create stunning visualizations with just a few lines of code. – Here we go


Turtle graphics is a popular way to introduce programming to kids. It was part of the original Logo programming language developed by Wally Feurzeig, Seymour Papert, and Cynthia Solomon in 1967. The turtle module is an extended reimplementation of the same-named module from the Python standard distribution up to version Python 2.5.

Python’s turtle module is a powerful tool for creating graphics and teaching programming to children. It provides turtle graphics primitives, which can be used in both object-oriented and procedure-oriented ways. This means you can create shapes and images on a virtual canvas using turtle functions. The module is included in the standard Python package and doesn’t need to be installed separately.

With turtle graphics, you can use commonly used Python Turtle methods such as forward(), backward(), right(), left(), etc. to create polygons, and stars, and change colors, among other things. It’s a great way to encourage children to learn programming using Python, as it is both fun and interactive.

Additionally, turtle graphics can be used to create games, such as the classic game of Snake. [3] The game involves controlling a snake to eat food and grow in size while avoiding collisions with its own body and the game’s boundaries. With the Turtle Module, you can create a drawing board and command a turtle to move around and draw shapes.

To build the game, you would start by setting up the screen, creating the snake’s head, defining functions to move the snake, adding food, building the snake’s body, handling collisions, and adding scores. The article provides code snippets and instructions to help readers follow along.

In summary, Python’s turtle module offers an excellent way to teach programming to children and create graphics using turtle graphics primitives. It is a fun and interactive approach to programming that can be used to create a wide range of shapes and games, such as the classic game of Snake.

Let’s make an illusion from it:

As mentioned above in the heading, we are using the turtle module in this project. It is a pre-installed module so we don’t need to install it manually. Now, let’s make it.

import turtle

t = turtle.Turtle()
a = turtle.Screen()

col = ("red", "green", "blue", "yellow","white")
for i in range(180):
    t.pencolor(col[i % 5])
    t.forward(i *180)
    t.forward(i * 190)
    t.setposition(0, 0)


I supposed “t” is the cursor of the turtle you can add anything like win = turtle.Turtle() , x = turtle.Turtle etc. I set its speed at 120 using t.speed(120). You can add your own speed using this t.speed(add your speed range here) and remember that use that variable which you used as the turtle. After that, I used “a” as a screen like above a = turtle.Screen(). You can use other variables for it, for example, h = turtle.Screen() , screen = turtle.Screen(). It could be anything. And also use the same variables which you used to suppose it. We can add color to the line.

We use col = (“red”, “green”, “white” ) like this. You can add more colors to it. But remember that you have to use “double inverted ” to add color and coma to add more color. Use it like this col = (“add your color”, “add your color”) you have to give space after color. Add some range for the lines to add range for i in range(add your range here). For the output for colorful lines use t.pencolor(col[i % 5]). One thing you need to understand here add the number of colors same as you mentioned above in col function. If you mentioned only three colors then the code will be like this t.pencolor(col[i % 3]).
