Blue Led (5$ for 2 at radio shack)
2xAAA battery holder (5$ at radio shack)
WiiMote candy dispenser (1$ at dolorama)

Step 1: Making a Hole for Battery Holder

Make a small hole (enough for the wires to pass) using a pocket knife or a heated screwdriver.

Step 2: Cutting Down Useless Plastic

Cut and sand down so that the switch and the led can be glued in placed later.

Step 3: Gluing and Soldering

Glue down the battery holder.
Solder the red wire to the shorter end of the switch
then solder the long pin of the led to the other pin on the switch (cut the leg to size)
the shorter leg will be soldered to the black wire.
glue everything into place.

Step 4: The End!

The end result! its a pretty bright light!

    umm, wouldnt it make more sense to put the switch on the end, so you dont have to take it apart every tie you want to turn it on?

    I'm trying to think of a way to take the faux A button off, and rig a pushbutton switch under it, so you could replace the top part of the wiimote back on...or a way to fix a switch to the trigger underneath. ( I got one of these from the local Walgreens, near the checkout)

    The B button has a pin that make it bounce back so maybe you can use that to rig a push button switch.
