Introduction: Easiest Ever Kids DIY Mini Crossbow

Very easy and kids friendly mini crossbow made from clothes pegs, cotton buds and rubber bands.

This was my first ever DIY project in my life. I was about 6 years old when my uncle showed me how to make this.

There is not much to say about this instructable when you look at the picture. But here is a little walkthrough.

Step 1: What You Need

1 clothes peg (wooden or plastic)

2 cotton buds

2 rubber bands

Step 2: Pull Off the Cotton of One Side of One Cotton Bud and Both Sites of the Other Cotton Bud.

Step 3: Push One Cotton Bud Through the Center of the Clothes Peg.

Step 4: Wrap One Rubber Band Around the Cotton Bud As Shown on the Picture.

Step 5: Wrap the Other Rubber Band Around the End of the Clothes Peg. Not to Tight!

Step 6: Place One End of the First Rubber Band in Place Over the Other Rubber Band.

Step 7: The Arrow

The other cotton bud is our arrow.
You have to make a nock at the end of the arrow. I used the edge of a sharpening stone.

Step 8: Ready

Place the arrow in the crossbow and push on the clothes peg to shoot.
