Step 1: The Arrow
Step 3: Painting the arrow
We created painting templates template for parents with their son's colors and had them paint the colors by placing the arrow over a couple pieces of Styrofoam and turning the arrow as they hold the paint brush. Here is an example.
Step 4: The plaque
To mount the arrows I used two 1/4" wire clips. I then cut one side of the wire clip and screwed it into the board with the opening facing out. This will allow the arrow to snap into place, securely holding the arrow, but it allow the arrow to detach from the plaque for moving or other reasons. The clips were screwed into place on either side, close to the bottom of the sun.
