How do you make a piano out of pumpkins? In this autumnal video, Maddie Moate and Greg Foot create a pumpkin piano with the help of a Makey Makey plug, clip, and play invention kit. We also get a quick tutorial about how circuits work, specifically how a lightbulb works.

If you’d like to make your own pumpkin, persimmon, peach, pear, potato, banana or other kind of piano, Moate included a link to the Makey Makey program they used here. You can get your own Makey Makey kit on or on Amazon. There’s also the Makey Makey GO for smaller projects.
