  4. Your bag of Boat Lanterns should have five pre-wired Pico LED lights with flickering yellow lights, and also five transparent yellow round LEGO bricks. As shown in the first photo, take each LED light and carefully bend the light so it faces forward as shown. As shown in the second photo, feed the LED light plug through the large hole of the round LEGO brick so the small white plug comes out the small hole of the brick.  This should allow the LED light to slide inside the transparent yellow brick as shown in the third photo.

    • Repeat this process for the remaining four lanterns.

  5. As shown by the red arrow in the first photo, attach the transparent yellow round 1x1 plate from your LEGO® set to the top of the transparent yellow LED brick with the Pico LED light inside. As shown by the red circle in the second photo, bend the light wire with your fingernail so it runs down the side of the stud on the bottom of the transparent yellow brick. As shown in the third photo, re-attach the round black plate to the bottom of the lantern.
