Thanksgiving Left-Over-Wich Alarm

One of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions using leftovers to make a super Thanksgiving Sandwich. I usually make it on Thursday night and save it for lunch on Friday. But, if you're family is like mine, the fridge isn't always the safest place to keep your glorious Left-Over-Wich. With extended family members staying over, food in the fridge tends to disappear into thin air, and sometimes you can catch the culprit, red cranberry sauce handed. So, I made this Thanksgiving Left-Over-Wich Alarm using the Rule Your Room Kit to ward of those pesky turkey burglars.

Place your Bits in the fridge. Put the servo in the door so that it swings out, blocking the sandwich.

Tape your pin down and attach the alligator clips. Try hiding everything behind milk cartons or other stuff in the fridge.
