Tablet Friendly Pixel Art with Google Sheets

For those of you that follow the Techy Coach Blog, you may remember that back in March, I posted an article on creating a Pixel Art template with Google Sheets.  Pixel Art is a great way to introduce kids to Google Sheets, and its just fund to play with!  If you missed that article, here it is... http://www.techycoach.com/2016/03/create-pixel-art-with-google-sheets.html  

That article also included a template you can download and use.  This morning,  I was thinking about how if you were to use this template on a tablet,  you would constantly have to use the popup keyboard to enter numbers in each cell so you could create Pixel Art.  As an update, this tutorial explains how to use Data Validation to add a dropdown menu to each cell so  all you have to do is click and choose a number.  This makes the Pixel Art Template very Tablet-Friendly.

If you want a quick tutorial on how to update your Pixel Art Template, here it is.
