Welcome to the CodePen Creative Challenge, a weeklong community event where the CodePen community shares their exploration of a theme through awesome pens! See past challenges or get in touch with the CCC team.
Since spring is already upon us in the northern hemisphere (3/20 was the first day) and with Easter being this weekend for those that celebrate, it seemed obvious that this week's CodePen Creative Challenge should be themed for Easter or spring.
As always, if you need inspiration we've got you covered! Pens, pictures or palettes, we've selected some stuff that will hopefully spark your creative side.
Spring has sprung
- posts tagged "spring" on Dribbble
- Some spring art to get those creative juices flowing
- Flat design is always good for CodePen: (search)
Easter eggs aren't just for Easter
ColourLovers is a color palette creation site backed by a vibrant community (pun definitely intended), and we've picked a few Easter/spring themed palettes we liked. Or search ColourLovers for spring or Easter and see what springs up.
- Pastel Easter eggs
- Praise Certain Frogs
- Ambiental Spray
- Dance to forget
- Easter Grass RC
- Easter Greetings
- dusty spring
- Easter Egg Gems
Or "Rules? We don't need no stinkin' rules."
There aren't many rules, but we do have to keep some sort of order to the chaos around here (have you ever tried to herd cats?). The following are some guidelines that help the CCC team keep these challenges running smoothly:
- Create a pen that has something to do with the current theme Easter/spring.
- Post a link to your pen in the comments below. Please no embeds (we want the page to load quickly), but screenshots or images are perfectly fine.
- Use the tag #springCCC both if you share your pen on Twitter (and really, why not?) and on the pen itself so we can find and share it easily.
- The CCC team will add your pens to the CCC: Easter/Spring 2016 Collection.
- The challenge starts on Friday, March 25 and ends on Friday, April 1.

Thanks to the entire CCC team, who have kept the challenge going over the past year. Thanks to Chris Coyier for his help behind the scenes. And of course a huge thanks to the community at large for all their creativity.
