Crickit Collapsible House with MakeCode. Huff and Puff and Blow this House Down!

In this tutorial, we’ll make a pop-up house. The project uses an Adafruit CRICKIT for Circuit Playground Express programmed in MakeCode to make the house fold flat when you blow on it, seeming to disappear before popping right back up!
