How can I wire a bunch of push lights together and run them off of regular power?

My plan is to take 100 push lights and somehow attach them to a board (or something similar) in a grid shape, so that people can turn them on and off and make patterns, kind of like a big Lite Brite.
They usually run on batteries, but this means I have to get my hands on 400 AAs, which isn't cheap, and from what I've read they tend to drain batteries pretty fast.
Is there any way to do this without electrocuting myself? I don't have much experience with electrical projects, but my brother does and I can get him to help me if there's like, soldering involved.
