  1. Print the top and bottom of the campfire on two different pieces of paper. (We recommend a heavier paper stock.) We have a full-color version and a black & white version. Choose which one you want to use. (The black & white version is fun to color!)

  2. Using Maker Tape, a battery, and a red LED build your circuit on the bottom part of the campfire. See the template for instructions on bending the LED legs so they point the correct way. Add a piece of Maker Tape to act as a switch that can fold over the gap in the circuit to complete it.

    • Use a paperclip as a "switch" to keep your circuit turned on while you wear it.

  3. Bend the tabbed pieces on the top part of the campfire so they can go under/behind the bottom part of the campfire. The "legs" of the top part of the campfire let it sit above the bottom part of the campfire so our LED has some room to glow. Attach the tab legs to the back/bottom of the campfire with tape or glue.
