TURN THE POWER ON AND TEST YOUR CIRCUIT. Your body is conductive, so touching both clips lets electricity flow through the Makey Makey Bit, sending an ON signal to the buzzer Bit.
USE A PENCIL TO FILL IN THE THREE SHAPES AS DARK AS YOU CAN.
ATTACH ALLIGATOR CLIPS TO THE PENCILLED EDGES OF THE BOOKLET PAGE.
FOLD THE CORNER OF THE PAGE AND FIRMLY PRESS THE BUTTON ON THE FOLDED FLAP. The buzzer should sound.

TRY SOME OF THESE IDEAS TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR INVENTION. THEN COME UP WITH YOUR OWN!
- ACTIVATE YOUR BUZZER WITH A FIST BUMP! Have one person hold the EARTH clip, while the other holds the SPACE/CLICK clip. Pound it to set off the buzzer!
- BRING OTHER OBJECTS TO LIFE. Instead of clipping into this booklet, try clipping each alligator clip into other conductive objects like metal utensils and foods. Touch both objects to activate the buzzer.
- USE OTHER CONDUCTIVE OBJECTS TO CONNECT PENCILLED-IN SHAPES AND TRIGGER THE BITS. Take metal objects like spoons or coins, or foods like bananas and lemons and make them touch both shapes at the same time.
