EDIT: Or you could do something like Arinoth suggests, just get a 9V battery and power them up.
I always forget about the damn 9V batteries. Just wire it up, make sure you wire the leads correctly (though best of my knowledge its a motor and so if you wired it backwards it should just spin in the opposite direction, theoretically anyways)
