Play Ideas

Oh no! Did you drop some toys on the floor? Don't worry, Dash can help you clean up!

What you'll need:

  • Dash
  • Bulldozer Bar
Set up Time

20 minutes

Supplies
  • Blocks
  • Various small toys
  • Small objects (e.g., bottle caps)

Mission:

Messy room? No problem! Using Dash and the bulldozer bar, you can program you robot to help you tidy up!

Setup:

  1. Designate an area in the room as the “trash collection” site. This can be a corner, or an area where you’d like to collect the toys you’d like to clean up.

  2. Plan out the path by using Dash as a measuring tool for the floor of your room. Mark your starting point, and then use your hand or a sheet of paper to mark the length of each Dash as you measure the size of your room.

  3. Carefully attach the bulldozer bar to Dash. Check out the instructions here.

  4. Draw out Dash’s path using the Path app!
