Step 10: Finishing

Finding the switch
The flashlight is finished now, but we will have to find the switch to turn it on.
To find it you go around the flashlight with the second magnet until the LED turns on. If you found it, it might be wise to mark the spot.

Decorating
To really finish it, this is the moment to decorate your flashlight. I gave my group several colors tape, stickers and markers and they made some nice designs. We had some glow in the dark stickers to mark the spot where the magnet had to touch the flashlight to turn it on.
Because there is also a magnet on the inside, you can "store" the magnet on the back of the flashlight.

We had loads of fun with it. I hope you do to!
*bent<br>
Thanx, English is not my first language and my dyslexia is also not helpful, so if my computer thinks that it is a word....<br>What does bend mean?
bend and bent mean basically the same thing.<br><br>to &quot;bend&quot; is to be doing the bending, while &quot;bent&quot; is to have already done the bending.<br><br>eg: they bend the metal at 90 degrees (present tense)<br>or: they bent the metal at 90 degrees (past tense)<br><br>if your learning a new language it can be confusing sometimes.
*you're<br><br>;-)
:P<br>i don't pay a lot of attention to my grammar. or punctuation :3
great instructable......beside me having bad experiences with hooking(why i learned to solder)i think that it is very creative and one of the few instructables i was able to follow without having to sit for a few minutes to realize what they meant and the pictures helped alot they are very good quality
Thank you. I would also always solder, but when you work with young kids or a big group or both, soldering is not always the best option. I didn't have enough soldering stations and enough leaders to go soldering with them. And in the end all the flashlights were working.
