In the Christmas spirit, I am showing you my way of putting a solar powered vibrating motor into a peace crane.

You can uses other kits, or build your own by getting a bigger solar panel and parts. But this is what i'm using. I am also using different parts then on the kit. My teachers use different parts for what we were doing. But anywhoo, on with the Instructable!
Step 1: The electronic portion
There are a thousand or more Instructable's on how to surface solder so I am not going to get into that.
I built this in class and at the time of posting this, one of my capacitors broke off so I cannot show you a video of this working. But rest assured It does work. I do not own a soldering iron. Yet....
The little yellow thing on the pic is a pager motor we had so it makes the crave vibrate. The big yellow thing is a big capacitor.
Step 2: Folding the Peace Crane
This will help you make the crane really easily. Or if not, there are a billion other Instructable's and websites to help you fold the peace crane.
Step 3: Adding the electronics
First your gonna want to cut the top part of the crane off.
I was having issues with the big capacitor, so I had to cut a hole in the bottom of the poor crane.
