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

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…

    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
