:MOVE mini Santa Sleigh:Once decorated, your sleigh should look something like the one in the above photograph. This is a great little project that is perfect for getting the youngsters involved in.
Step 1:Cut Rudolph’s face with two gradients of engraving, remove the front ‘:Move’ piece and attach to the front of the :Move mini – I found that blu-tac did the job of holding the piece on to the front of the micro:bit.
Step 2:Colour in the panels on your :Move mini and Trailer – Use a marker pen or paint.
Step 3:Also, print out these 3D presents or make your own to put in Santa’s sleigh! Colour them in with a marker pen or paint.
Step 4:All that remains is to add some code to your :MOVE mini code to keep Rudolph's nose lit up and Santa's can now proceed with his deliveries! This concludes the ninth of our 12 Makes of Christmas, we'll be back tomorrow with another festive making activity. You can check out the other Makes of Christmas, here.
