Fun with LED's
A Very Basic Circuit
All you need to create a basic circuit is a watch battery and an LED light. Electricity flows from negative to positive, so when you create a complete connection from the negative side of the battery to the positive, electricity will flow through and power whatever is in-between as long as the battery is strong enough.
As long as you make your connections with conductive material, and be sure everything is connected with no breaks, you can add components like LED lights to all sorts of things. For example, you can use copper tape or conductive paint to make your connections on paper or conductive thread with fabric projects. Just imagine it and make it!
