Solar Lantern


What you get

in Solar Lantern

Illuminate your adventures with a solar-powered lantern! Inside a wood lantern that you build yourself, a solar LED candle uses energy from the Sun to turn on in the dark — and turn off in the light. Learn about the Sun’s incredible energy, the electronics that make the candle work, and the ways people use eco-friendly solar power in the world around you. What a bright idea!




From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

We tried using a battery-powered light in the lantern, but it was a hassle to turn on and off. The solar light fixed that by turning itself on and off — and as a bonus, it’s more environmentally friendly!

    My 4 year old twins loved putting this together with some minor help. The finished lantern is great - really good quality and they’ve loved using it as a nightlight. It’s going on it’s first camping trip soon!
