How to connect small toy motor to solar panel? Answered

I've a school project to submit and the thing I'm making involves connecting a small toy motor that I salvaged,  to a solar panel from the same toy (pictures attached) . They came attached to gether but I accidentally got them to separate. The wire was joined (?) with panel by a glue and that was the one that got lose. I can't seem to get the circuit to close now. I only tried holding it in place by hand though. Before I use insulation tape, I need to confirm. Is there anything I'm missing? I live in an arid place with hardly any clouds, so sunlight is not a problem.

In this Guide, we look at the options you have when you decide how to select the right motor panel for small motors. Generally, the best cost-size performance was found when the panel voltage slowly exceeded the engine's voltage and a maximum current 25-50% higher than the motor's max current.
Please repeat tests and tell us what you think for your designs.
We experimented with four simple motors: DC Toy Hobby Motor (4.5 –9V, 0.25A) HSD-8025 Brushless DC Cooling Fan (12V/ 0.12A) DAGU robot DG01D Mini DC Gear Box (4.5V,.25A) Liquid Pump –350GPH (12V, 1.5A)

Attach the wires with solder or conductive paint not glue.

Did this toy happen to have a battery in it or any other components. I doubt that panel can run the motor on it's own. I can see it charging a small battery or super capacitor and then the motor runs off that.

The wires need to be soldered into place.
