After that dries, you have a custom DIY snow globe! But, it seems to be missing something…oh that’s right we need to add the electronics!

Grab your programmed Circuit Playground Express and place it into the base of the snow globe so that the NeoPixels are pointing up towards the inside of the globe. Plug a lipo battery into the Circuit Playground’s JST connector for power. Close-up the bottom portion of the snow globe with the screw on base to keep the Circuit Playground nice and snug and then shake away for music, lights and shimmering glitter!
