The Easiest Light Ever

Introduction: The Easiest Light Ever

This is a very small flashlight or a lantern. It can replace your night light, jack-o-lantern light, or walkway light.

This idea came about when I was trying to make a flashlight with small and simple things that would be lying around the house.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: What You'll Need

1. Electrical tape or another strong tape

2. Scissors

3. LED bulb

4. 2 AA/AAA (either one will work)

5. 4 small wires about an Inch long (one long can be cut down into four small)

6. 15-45 Minutes

7. Aluminum foil (optional)

8. Cardboard (optional)

If you are missing some of this stuff you can probably get it at Walmart or off of Amazon.

Step 2: Getting Started

Take the Batteries and wrap them up in the tape like shown above. Make sure that the batteries are facing the same way. Remember make it look cool.

Step 3: Wires

Take two of the wires and attach them to one of wires on the bulb. It might help if you split the wires on the bulb. Then tape them to the top of the batteries; not to the end yet though. Then do the same with the other two wires.

Step 4: Finishing Touch

Tape the end of the wires to the ends of each of the batteries. If the Light doesn't work now check and make sure you are getting a good connection. If it still doesn't work it's probably the bulb. Unless you want to do the extras you have just finished an Instructable.

Step 5: Extras

If you would like to make a platform you can with a little piece of cardboard just bend the ends.

If you would like to make it a flower just take the foil and cut a hole in the middle then shape it the way you want . Also it should make it a little brighter.
