1. Make your own little Clog out of conductive dough :)

2. Make some holes in your character

3. Put some insulating dough at the bottom of each hole

4. Build up some conductive walls around the holes (this makes the game more difficult!)

5. Now make the little conductive 'bugs' to take out of Clog - (make them smaller than the hole size)

6. Stick the short leg of the LED into Clog

7. Make a little ball of conductive dough

8. Stick the long end of the LED into this blob

9. Stick the red lead (positive) of the battery pack into this blob

10. Attach a crocodile clip to the black lead (negative) of the battery pack

11. Attach two jumper leads onto the other end of the crocodile lead

Your circuit is complete! Time to play Clog Operation! Use the jumper wires to take the conductive 'bugs' out of Clog - the less the LED light flashes the better you are!
