1. Gather Materials
Gather the materials for this part of the project. You’ll need two of the three craft sticks, three #33 rubber bands, and some duct tape. Don’t worry too much about the exact size of the rubber bands. Just make sure they are the thin type, stretchy, and fairly long (#33 rubber bands are ⅛” wide and 3½” long).

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.
