Water Gun Alarm Clock- Where to plug in wire?

Hi, I'm building a water gun alarm clock where I'm connecting a wire from the soundbox on the alarm to the button on the water gun because that's what the tutorial I'm using says to do (http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Water-Gun-Alarm-Clock). I was wondering if it would be easier/more effective to connect the wire to the motor on the water gun instead of the button? Thanks!

Wikihow is pretty sketchy on its hows. At least they mention a relay circuit to use the alarm clock signal to trigger the activation of the motorized water gun. Find out what an electronic relay does, figure out the specs on what relay you need and then you can build it.
