This tiny lighthouse makes a nice night-light; its soft glow is just bright enough to lead your child to the safe harbor of his bed.
* If you're burning through batteries keeping your lighthouse lit, you may want to invest in a set of rechargeable tea lights. We found a set of 12 lights for $40 at improvementscatalog.com.
Tape three white stripes around the red cup.
Trace the bottom of the clear plastic cup onto the black card stock.

Use tacky glue to adhere the black circle to the bottom of the clear cup.
Glue the windows and door to the red cup, set the tea light on the top, and place the plastic cup over the light.
