Getting started with Lego crafts

Lectrify components are sized to fit onto standard LEGO pieces. To get started, all you need is copper tape, a battery holder and an LED.

  1. Lay strips of copper tape in between the LEGO pegs. This will give you the best fit. 
  2. Place components on pegs, remember to connect red to red and white to white. 
  3. Make your own LEGO creation!
