Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials

You will need practice a golf ball (duh) you can find these at wal-mart and there not to expensive, a cutting tool (i used a knife), a battery, a LED, and some electrical tape.

Step 2: Making the Incision

cut a hole in the ball that will fit your battery and light but will not let them get out. (Or if you want cut the ball cleanly in half and use glue to put it back together)

Step 3: LET THERE BE LIGHT!

combine the battery and LED then used the electrical tape to keep them connected

Step 4: Combine the 2

put the light into the ball and make sure it doesn't fall out. I advise using the knife to pry the cut open to slip the light in just don't cut yourself!

Step 5: Play Ball

Now your done and ready to go! keep in mind that practice golf balls are not ment to go far and the eventually the battery will burn out the LED.

    First there was the Throwie, then the floatie and the sinkie and the ice floatie and the jigglie, now there's the golfie! (How about adding a switch so that the battery lasts linger?)

    I love linger lasting batteries :P Come to think of it, I just love batteries in general. I like the idea of calling it a Golfie too.

    Good idea, but I don't like the way it was done. Maybe cut the ball cleanly and glue it back together with a strong glue or something? Because with the huge slit, when the ball is hit it would collapse upon it self a little bit, causing the ball to not go as far. And it would probably eventually break.

    Good idea, i didn't happen with me during test rounds but i'm sure a for serious golfer could do that, i'll add in a side note for yeah. its just that i wanted things simple, and glue and I aren't the best of friends

    This is actually a very good idea. But, I would add in a resistor, and a switch (connected to the LED part) so then I can take it out whenever I want, and it won't burn out, but this is a good idea! Very nice job. +1 rating. (added to favorites)
