There are so many fun holiday projects you can make with our invention kit! We wanted to share a post to give you some ideas to use at home or with your students at school!
We love this interactive Christmas tree created by Makey Makey ambassador Kalo Haslem!
For the Interactive Christmas tree, the kindergarten students made ornaments. Then they were able to come into the hall and trigger them and dance. The classes talked about how circuits work.
Claire Garside, a researcher at Leeds University made her actual tree interactive with Makey Makey and Soundplant. With the new IOS update, you can actually use your iPhone or iPad coupled with our Sampler app to recreate a similar effect!
Here is another great interactive tree!
Here is a really amazing holiday card tutorial from Yui at Conductive Music for making interactive greeting cards. Yui makes the most amazing cartoon tutorials! We just love them. This is a great group in London that helps promote technology and music.
A holiday card can also take the shape of a Christmas tree, like this great example from Bethany Jones on Twitter.
More inspirational holiday cards by McPherson's classes!
5/6 McPherson created holiday paper circuit cards then recorded messages for the inside of their cards using Scratch and @makeymakey. Thank you @MrHennigar for the virtual session help! pic.twitter.com/mMkobBUJlx— Alex McPherson (@AlexMcPherson7) December 7, 2020
Our holiday door is done! So much hard work was put into this by our class from the decorations to recording our messages. Happy holidays from us to you! @makeymakey #steam @CourticeNorthPS pic.twitter.com/yPGrhX1HnG— Mrs. Fedewicz (@mrsfedsclass) December 14, 2020
Last holiday season, Mrs. Fedewicz's class recorded messages to make their holiday door interactive.
During Aaron Maurer's 29 days of Making in 2019, Naomi Harm shared an excellent idea for students to share their culture and holiday stories by creating talking paper dolls.
