Light Up Your Favorite T-Shirt with #CircuitPlaygroundExpress #WearableWednesday
Make a sparkly t-shirt that sparkles with real lights. The lights are triggered by the Circuit Playground’s shake sensor, so they twinkle when you move, dance, jump, or wiggle.
This is a very easy beginner project that’s great to do with kids. It uses a vinyl cutter for the customizable iron-on decoration, and a Circuit Playground programmed with MakeCode, Microsoft’s drag-and-drop code editor. The electronics slip into the t-shirt pocket — there is no soldering or sewing required.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
