Do You Want to Make a (Dancing) Snowman?Arduino
//Needed Library

//Global Variables

Servo dancingSnowman;           //this is a needed declaration saying what our servo motor is to be called
Servo dancingSnowman2;           //this is a needed declaration saying what our servo motor is to be called

int box = 11;                   //this is the digital pin that we are sending data from the microcontroller to the servo motor

int degree = 40;                //this is a variable to keep track of what angle the motor is currently located at

int Speed = 2;                  //this has a maximum speed value of 6, as per the physical limitations of the servo motor

int closedMouthAngle = 90;      //this has a minimum value of 0, as per both library and phyiscal limitations of the servo motor

int openedMouthAngle = 130;     //this has a maximum angle value of 180, as per both library and phyiscal limitations of the servo motor
