Introduction: Popsical Stick Exploding Disc

This is a Popsicle Stick disk that you throw and it blows up. You can use it again and again until your Popsicle sticks break. This is fun. It can be hard to put together though. If if you throw it at your wall, it could leave a nick, so throw it at something that won't get ruined.

Step 1: Get the Pieces

All you need is 6 Popsicle sticks. For best results use the size Popsicle as shown.(1 cm. wide)

Step 2: Laying It Out

Place 1 Popsicle stick on as shown.

Step 3:

Place 1 more Popsicle stick on the opposite side.

Step 4: The Hard Part

Weave 1 Popsicle sticks through a side. (hint) putting it at the edge of the table may help.

Step 5:

Do the same to the other side.

Step 6:

Now hold it as if you were throwing a disc. Hold it very carefully. Grab it in the position as shown. Fling it at a wall, and watch it explode! Have fun.

Many moons ago, like 65 or so, we used to make these but use them as a non-returning "boomerang". If you flip them somewhat like a Frisbee they will float and fly.
