My son (almost 3) wanted a nightlight at his bed. And as I have a 3d printer and I found that cool hollow moon, I printed one for him.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Parts to Print
Find my parts on Thingiverse
I created the base plate and the lid so that the battery pack of the led-string fits perfectly in it
1x base plate
The moon and the bunny can be found here. You have to scale both to 125%, so that the base plate fits perfectly. I scaled both up do have a bigger lamp.
I recommend using transparent filament (PLA).
Step 2: Parts You Need (BOM)
Beside the printed parts, there is only one thing you need: The LED-String (and of course 3 AA batteries)
1x LED-String (I recommend yellow)
Step 3: Assemble
- Glue the moon to the base_plate using CA glue.
- Add the LED-String into the moon.
- Add batteries
- clip on the lid
- put the bunny on his place (I did not glue the bunny, so that I can replace it with different colors)
