Step 2: Make 3 Big Stars

Make 3 big stars with white connectors (aka snowflakes) and red rods

Step 3: Feet Under the Motor

Put a white connector at the end of each red rod and fit under the motor

Step 4: First Star Upon the Motor

Put a red connecor at the end of each red rod

Step 5: Second Star Upon the Motor

Attach the second star with the red connectors and that's finished

Step 6: Have Fun

Put the solar panel outside the house because it would not work behind a window.
When it turn drop paint with the tea spoon.
Gently mix with the wood stick : you are an artist.

    It's a nice piece of job. I have seen in your instructables that you've got an xbox. Maybe you could put a controler inside a gun to play fps games.
