Up past your bedtime but have an idea that can’t wait until morning? Let the Nighttime Marker light up your bright idea!


Steps

1  Gather your Cubes, LEGO®s, and other materials.

2  Press the 12-stud beam onto the 8-stud side of the plate, and press the Battery Cube on the near side of the plate.

3  Press the 4-stud beam on the edge of the plate perpendicular to the 12-stud beam, then press two 3/4 pins into either hole.

4  Press the LED Cube onto the 3/4 pins, then connect a wire from the upper left LED Cube stud to the upper right Battery Cube stud. Do the same for the right LED Cube stud to the left Battery Cube stud.
