Okay, time to have some fun! Make sure your battery is hooked up and turn the FLORA or Circuit Playground Express on. The first NeoPixel in the first strip will blink three times to warn you that the board is getting ready to read a color. Hold up the outside of the umbrella that has the color sensor right next to your fabric/item of choice. The color sensor will flash and then the color will be loaded into all the NeoPixels.

Hit the push button once on your FLORAbrella for a fun rainbow pattern. Hit the button again and you will have the rain pattern. You'll have to switch the power off and on again to go back to the color sensor mode.

Have fun and send us pics of your finished FLORAbrella!
