Making Drawings Alive Using SpriteKit

Couple of weeks back I asked my kids to draw a family picture on a piece of paper. My daughter drew this wonderful drawing of our family. Apparently , even in cartoon drawings my hair are weird and out of order. Anyways, I thought it would be a cool experiment to use my programming skills to make the drawing alive.

I opened Xcode (iOS Editor by Apple) and started typing Swift code with SpriteKit (Gaming Engine). In under 10 minutes I was able to create a snow fall effect along with the sun effect. I placed the appropriate effects over the objects drawn by my daughter and voila, drawing came alive.

The effect is shown below in the YouTube video:
