At RadioShack we are big fans of our DIY Kits and we are also big fans of the holiday season. So, like peanut butter and jelly, salt and pepper, and Lance and his bike, these kits are a perfect combination of DIY and the holidays! The Simulated LED Yule Log Fire Kit and the LED Color Wheel Kit for Holiday Ornaments Kit are coming to select RadioShack stores, just in time for the holiday season. Both of these would be a great way to spend time with the family during the cold winter months. I was lucky enough to spend some time with Lauren Kushnerick, Product and Consumer Marketing Manager, and help her put the Simulated LED Yule Log Fire Kit together!
The Yule Log Fire Kit comes with 14 LEDs, 18 resistors, circuit board, toggle switch, microcontroller, battery holder and more, but don’t forget to pick up a soldering work station, and 4 “AA” batteries while you’re at the store. Once you have all the parts and pieces you are ready to begin putting together the Simulated LED Yule Log Fire kit. The kit comes with easy step-by-step instructions to help make putting the kit together a piece of cake!
Once you have fully assembled the kit, you are one step away from a Simulated LED Yule Log Fire. Simply insert the 4 “AA” batteries and the kit is ready to be lit up! Below is a picture of a completed Simulated LED Yule Log Fire kit. If you are looking to be really creative you can simply add ornamental flames, twigs or other decorations to customize your project!
