Place the button in your hand, and fasten the
power module, battery, and buzzer to your arm with rubber bands. (Make sure the rubber bands are large enough so they don’t cut off your circulation!)

I guess I'm just old. I remember when joy buzzers were small, inconspicuous, fit on a finger, didn't require batteries, and sleeve length had nothing to do with it.

those were more of sudden vibrators with a loud noise, but this actually gives an electric shock!

Very fun! Did you get any funny reactions from the pranking?

Thanks, the kids loved it! Our program leader dressed in full "mad scientist" attire with the buzzer under it and all the 2nd and 3rd graders all thought it was hilarious!
