While staying in Yosemite National Park, we used our littleBits to make this great magnifier to study plants and insects!

How To Make It


Gather materials and determine how many lights you would like to add to your magnifying glass. (We chose 2 for this project).


Build your circuit by attaching the battery to the button, followed by the branch and LED's.


Secure the littleBits to the handle of your magnifying glass. Secure the LED's to the glass with a small amount of tape. (Reinforce the connection points with tape to make sure the bits aren't disturbed while holding your magnifying glass!)
