These are the materials you will need for the first few parts:

1)water bottle/container (this can be whatever size you want your target to be)

2)shredded paper (if you don't have a shredder than paper cut into small pieces will work)


Step 2:

Fill up your water bottle about halfway full. Then wet it down with water.

Optional: You can get something to stick inside your container to squish the paper down.

Step 3:

Repeat step 2 until the bottle is full.

Great idea. Just a tip, might want to add a disclaimer saying that you aren't responsible for any harm inflicted while using the target, and to be careful while shooting your bow and arrow. Just a tip.

What exactly is the problem if water comes shooting out? Is your grass allergic to water, or something?

I wouldn't want to shoot a wet arrow but you dont need to drain it if you dont want to
