How to make bows and arrows with popsicle sticks, dental floss, and Q-tips

Nov 13, 2012 By Abraham

Maiz at Brooding Hen says this toy requires a bit of practice and coordination, but once kids get the hang of it, it shoots 15-20 feet. She also says it’s great for 4 to 6-year-olds, but I’m about seven times older than that and am looking forward to giving it a try myself…

Now duck and run for cover…

    My class is going to love this as there last project of the year! Thank you from the whole class.

  2. Stephanie Madden says:

    I’m not a teacher or anything. Just a normal 14 year old

  3. Sam says:

    So I tried this, and I just thought it would probably be a good idea to say that if the popsicle stick isn’t bending very easily, TRY ANOTHER POPSICLE STICK because I spent about an hour trying to “gently bend” a popsicle stick that felt very stiff and I could tell it was on the verge of snapping, but I wouldn’t give up. Finally, the next day I eat another popsicle and start toying with the stick, and of course, in two seconds, I’m able to bend THIS popsicle stick more than I was able to bend the other one in a full hour. So please, if you’re trying this craft, TEST YOUR POPSICLE STICK FIRST. Just a heads up to those creative people out there. <3
