Gather Your Supplies

You will need:

1 Unwanted Mouse (the computer kind)
10 Butterfly Paper Clips (the larger ones)
3 nuts with bolts (something around ¾” long should work)
3 alligator clips (You may be able to buy these by themselves somewhere, but we just bought a couple sets of “jumper leads” and pulled the clips off)

Optional: Magnets (Just to be clear, we’re building a desk scorpion, so this is pretty much all optional, but if you have some strong magnets around, we’ll show you how to add a cool little feature to your arachnid.)
