Individual solar-lamp assemblies are available at many hardware stores and home centers, and they make nice light sources while camping. In order to place the solar light in the sun for charging, it needs to be portable. Cover or paint a 13- to 16-ounce coffee can or a 1-gallon paint can. Cut a hole in the cover for the diameter of the solar-light stem. Insert the light fixture through the hole into the empty can. Fill the can with sand, stones, plaster or cement to add weight. During the day, place the can in full sun, and at night move the light to show the way to your entrance door. Simply store in a compartment between uses.
