Just be wary of making sparks near the battery, particularly just after it's been charged ..... a recipe for a faceful of acid - don't ask how I know!

You can undo the lead to the starter at the solenoid and touch it to the other pole. Sparks will fly!

Safer than doing it the other way around because you don't risk touching the battery lead on the frame in all the excitement and discovering you've learned how to weld!
