Build your own games! Create colourful characters from coffee-cups. Use a stick for the fishing rod, some rope and a paper clip to create a hook. Add arms, a face and a little loop on the top of its head. Pick your champion, put a SAM Motor with a wheel underneath your cup and a SAM Servo under another. Connect everything in the app, set the timer for one minute and GO! The first one to catch their crab with the fishing rod wins!
Make dreams! Start with creating a long triangle of kitchen foil and slide it into a kitchen roll. Now cut a circle from paper and decorate it with colours and shapes. Attached a SAM Motor to the circle and attach it to the kitchen roll so that you see your decorated circle through your kaleidoscope. Connect the SAM Motor wirelessly in the SAM app, and start dreaming!
Create a night-light that automatically turns on when it gets dark. Create a simple lamp shade from two sheets of paper. Roll it up. Use a roll of tape as a foot. Add a SAM Light to the shade, and place a SAM Light Sensor in front. The SAM Light Sensor will detect when the ambient light gets too low, and will turn on the SAM Light. In the SAM App, the Delay Block will automatically turn off the SAM Light after an hour. Good night!
Wakey, Wakey. The drum machine will wake you up in the morning.

Next use the Keyboard block as a snooze button, connect it to the Toggle block to turn the alarm off, and to a Delay block to turn the alarm back on in 9 minutes. Sleep tight!
