You can use your Circuit Playground Express (CPX) to build a fun, interactive, and beautiful holiday snow globe! Using CircuitPython, you can code the CPX to read its built-in acceleromter and detect when the snow globe is being shaken, and then play back a melody and festive light show!!
Besides the electronics listed below, you'll also need:
- snow globe kit (available at hobby stores)
- distilled water
- double stick foam tape
- E6000 glue or equivalent
- a figurine, such as a LEGO minifigure or 3D printer to make your own
