Picture of How to Make a Mini Bow and Arrows
Saw this on Pintrest:  http://almostunschoolers.blogspot.com/search/label/craft%20projects?updated-max=2010-11-27T14%3A36%3A00-08%3A00&max-results=20 (scroll down toward the bottom).  To me it was a great idea for Cub Scouts, especially for Pack Meeting.  My son, a new Cub Master, was looking for something “Indian” themed for his Pack Meeting, so we made these.  They were a big success.  Hope you have fun with them too.

Step 1:

Picture of
Craft sticks (popsicle sticks, one per bow, $2 for 24 or more)
Dental floss ($2 for a roll)
Cotton swabs (the kind with sticks make out of paper, $2 per 300)
Craft knife
Cutting board

Sounds like an experiment to me. Try it and let me know the results. Thanks for asking.

Nice ible
or maybe if you'r mad at someone, you can stick a toothpick or a needle then shoot at the people you're mad at.

You comment told me you were a kid. In Cub Scouts when we make these we have a rule that you can't shoot at living creatures. That's with the Q-tips, let alone anything that would cause real damage. So, you will not use a toothpick or a needle to shoot someone. If you did, the consequences would be such that you would regret it for a very long time. Learn to think, "if I did (insert action), what would be the result?" Then think of all possible results. If if even one of the possible consequences is something you wouldn't want to live with, then "Don't do it!" I'm glad you like it.
I think the poor guy is just kidding. I'm not saying you're bad with kids/ understanding sarcasm, I'm just saying he didn't mean it
