Just like throwies, only waterproof.

First you will need...
2.CR2032 3V Lithium Batteries (2 batteries per LED)
3.10mm Non-diffused LEDs.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: FIRST
First, you need to create a throwie, which can be found here,
The picture is diferent than my finish, cause i couln't get a picture of the one that i was making.
How to make a Throwie...
1.Stack two batteries on top of each other and sandwich them between the legs of the LEDs. Use a few inch long strip of the tape to hold them on completely.
Step 2: WATERPROOFING
Ok now you need Some clear tape(any kind will do, I used Scotch.)
Step 3: Tape It
Now take the throwie and cover it in the tape. Make sure there is no openings.
Step 4: FINISHED!!!
Now your Sinkie is complete. There is no real use for them(at least for me) they are just to light up stuff. Be imaginitave!
(NOTE: LEDs do not work very well under cold weather.)
This is my first instructable so tell me what you think.
(P.S. You might want to tape a rock or another weight to the bottom where the light is so it will sink better.)
Mine was kind of screwed up in the process but you get the idea.
Step 5: Wheeeeeeee!
I like to play with my fish with it, I tie a string on it and dangel it under the water, and they try to get it but it is to big.
Step 6: Extras
You can also not tie a rock to it and let it float on top of the water.
I also put magnets on each side and threw it at my door and it stuck. Tis a metal door.
