Default How to solder little stuff?

I'm trying to make a stop light switch.
I have soldered. Never been good at it but...
How do I solder the little switch pictured? Heres a link to it... Mini SPST 0.5-Amp Momentary Switch (4-Pack) -
Its only about 1/2 inch long. I tried to solder wires to it and the plastic gets hot, the terminals get loose and its shot. Would you solder it or is there some kind of connectors that can be used? What would you do.
