You now have a fun mini crossbow, ready for some target practice!

Try using a cardboard box as a target, or if you're using the fire arrows, only use them outside, somewhere safe where nothing can catch fire, and keep some water close by just in case. Make sure you don't hold the fire arrow in the crossbow for too long so you don't set the stick or bottle top on fire.

You could add a strike pad to this and the match will ignite upon release, this will guarantee it stays lit during flight
