    Step 1: Solder the Switch and the Battery Holder

    The design on this board is super simple so you can solder the components on in any order. Personally, I like to start with the switch and battery holder.  I made the holes for the battery holder snug so with a little pressure it should snap into place for easy soldering!

    If you're having trouble keeping the board from moving when soldering you can use a piece of tape to hold the board down. Just be sure not to have the tape too close to where you are soldering your joint!

    *Note: The battery holder and switch are made of metal so they get hot when soldering. Be careful touching them during and directly after soldering!

    *I like to add a bit of extra solder so the clouds eyes look nice and smooth.

    Step 2: Solder the LEDs

    I find it helpful to solder the 2 outer LEDs first and the middle on last. I usually use a spool of solder wick to support the other side of the board while soldering. (you can use anything that's a similar height to the board.)
