Welcome to December Tindarians!
With the month chock full of holidays, you might be looking for some last minute treats for the little makers in your life. I am here to help you out!
Congratulations to the Soldering Sunday team as their CHIP project was fully funded this week on Kickstarter! This tiny, interactive electronics kit is in the shape of a friendly robot. Customize your CHIP with 4 LED eye color options or you can even have fun with it like they have and make your CHIP into your favorite character.
Looking for something a little more winter themed? Check out this kit from Low Voltage Labs. The friendly snowman would be a great starter project or a fun decoration to put on the tree each year. Once you get the kit, full step-by-step photo instructions are included on their website to make this a fun afternoon project and easy too!
Avocado Electronics has a 20% off promotion going on right now for this versatile Arduino kit for kids. Choose from beginner projects such as a dice roller or a night light and help launch a love for electronics and projects.
Made by a 10 year old Manny, for kids, this little kit can be added to a custom structure (Manny used legos to build a lighthouse!) and build the circuit to make a little light. You can even watch Manny’s youtube videos and see how excited he is about getting others interested in electronics. His video is sure to make you smile.
Is your little maker a little more advanced in their electronic capabilities? This RPi breakout board from one of our international Tindarians, Jesus E., is a gateway into learning Python. His blog includes examples to get started.
Next week I will post some more ideas for gifts or even elements for projects over your upcoming winter breaks, so be on the lookout. Thank you all for sharing your projects and innovations on Tindie. We are so excited to have you as part of this community!
