LESSON GUIDE

STEP 1 : Prep your pumpkins

Plan out the pumpkin. Consider what it’ll look like and what it’ll do. Use markers to draw faces on the pumpkins and a circle around the stem. Use markers that can easily be wiped off in case of mistakes. Go over the design w/ a permanent marker once finalized. Carve and scoop out the pumpkin. Line the bottom w/ foam or wax paper to keep the bits clean.

STEP 2 : Bitify the pumpkins

Add bits to the pumpkins to make them light up, make sounds, or move!
