This post is part of the Summer Challenge Collection, a collection of tasks or projects for our kids to do over the summer.

For this challenge you will create a simple counter to keep track of any number of events that you might want to track. You could use this to keep track of the number of books you’ve read, the number of times you did a certain activity, or how many summer challenges you’ve completed.

The counter must be created using Shortcuts and Data Jar. The shortcut should have at least these functions:

  • Increment a counter
  • Decrement a counter
  • Create a counter
  • Remove a counter

Once you have created the Shortcut then write a post about how you created it, and include a link to install the shortcut via the share sheet.
