Do you need a last minute Halloween decoration to scare your friends and trick-or-treaters? Try building a scream box that lets out blood-curdling screams when it’s opened! By using a passive infrared (PIR) motion sensor and an Audio FX board you can build this scream box without even using a separate microcontroller or writing any code!
Before you get started it will help to familiarize yourself with the following guides:

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
