Step 1: What to Get...
C or D cell battery(almost any store has it)
26-20 guage solid wire(from almost any hardware store)
Magnets-really strong kind(from ORVAC or any store like that)
Compass-To find north of magnets(from...)
Step 2: The Wire...

The big magnets are on the bottom and the top of the magnets are facing up and the polarity is facing north. The wider magnet on the top is to hold the wire in place and have better connectivity.
Step 4: Putting It All Together.
