Experimental solderless LED kit for kids

Designed for kids who want to start building electronic circuits, with real components, without soldering.

In stock on Tindie

Paper circuits are low-power electronics that are created on paper utilizing conductive tape, LEDs and a power source such as a 2032 coin-cell battery.

There are small items used in this project such as LEDs and can be a choking hazard for children under 3 years.


  • Coin-cell battery (3V) CR2032
  • Copper tape (1/4″) with conductive adhesive
  • LED – 3mm, surface mount or similar 
  • Blank canvas card stock

 

  • Step 1: Insert the conductive tape through the canvas.

  • Step 2: Peel and remove the adhesive tape.

 


  • Step 3: Mount the 3mm RGB flashing led in the pin hole.


 


  • Cont' tape down the lead of the LED




  • Step 4: Glue the outline of your paper circuit to the canvas.



  • Step 5: Decorate the paper circuit. Add glitter, color, and any extra bells and whistles.

  • Step 6: Add the coin cell battery. Use tape to secure it as needed.

  • Step 7: Tape the rocket flame to the circuit to finish the project.





















Enjoy the project and share with friends.
