By connecting the batteries in a series and the bulbs in parallel.

Work Step by Step

Consider the power equation $P=\frac{V^{2}}{R}$. To maximize the delivered power, the voltage should be large (place the two batteries in series) and the resistance should be small (connect the two resistors in parallel to each other, and wire this combination to the batteries in series).
