Overview

Light up a room, a secret fort, under the covers, your closet, a tent — where ever you are! This build helps you make a party out of any space! 


Steps

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

2  Attach the 24-tooth gear to the Motor Cube.

3  Stack the Motor Cube on top of the Battery Cube.
NOTE: Make sure the metal posts of the Battery Cube are touching those of the Motor Cube.

4  Stack the metal post side of the Light Cube on top of the metal posts of the Motor Cube.

5  Place the two 4-stud bricks in the middle of the 4 x 8 plate.

6  Align the 24-tooth gear on the Motor Cube with the center of the two 4-stud bricks, and press down gently to connect them. Your Circuit Cube light post should be able to stand alone.

7  Cut strips of colored paper, any size you want!
TIP: Thinner strips provide more color!

8  Cut a piece of cardboard approximately 4 x 4 inches, and gather some tape.

9  Tape the first strip of colored paper across the cardboard so it forms an arc.

10  Repeat with as many colored paper strips as you want.
NOTE: Leave your last strip open on one side so you can easily insert your Circuit Cubes light post.

11  Place your Cubes inside, turn on the Battery Cube, close the final flap, and get ready to have a party!
