Motorized Grinch Fireplace

In this project we’ll build an interactive cardboard fireplace with LEDs and a motorized Grinch!

A Circuit Playground Express will drive an LED strip and a servo controlled paper Grinch cutout. Hidden under a rug, a simple switch triggers the servo when stepped on. So the Grinch looks like he’s hiding when someone steps on the rug, sneaky!

See the full guide here!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
