Step 1 - Prepare the Dance Mat
To prepare the dance mat, first we selected 6 foam pieces. We only choose 6 pieces because there are only 6 controls on one Makey Makey. For our other dance mat, we connected two Makey Makeys to create a larger dance area.
On the none dancing side we used masking tape to tape the squares together. Next we used aluminum tape to put an X on each square.
Step 2 - Attaching the Makey Makey
With the Dance Mat prepared with aluminum tape Xs on each square, it was time to attach one alligator clip from the X to the control on the Makey Makey. Using the piano program from the Makey Makey website, it was a simple activity to connect the Makey Makey to our Dance floor.
