Popsicle Stick Bow and Arrow





Introduction: Popsicle Stick Bow and Arrow

How to make a mini bow and arrow out of some popsicles sticks and pencil crayons. Note:very powerful.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

3+ popsicle sticks (they end up breaking)
hundreds of old pencil crayons
an elastic


Step 2: Bending the Sticks

First boil some water in the pot. Second boil the posicle sticks for roughly 5-10minutes or less, they just need to be rubbery. Next take the rubber like popsicle sticks and bend them between something, and leave it there untill it's dry ( blow dryer helps)a few of the sticks might break.

Step 3: The Bow String

Take the elastic and tie the ends into loops

Step 4: Finishing Bow

Take the elasitc and wrap the loops around each end multiple times to make sure that the elastic doesn't fall off.

Step 5: Amo

Take the pencil crayon(s) and the hack saw and make notches on the pencil crayons. You may want a few hundred pencil crayons because the amo gets lost. Now testing! I think everyone knows how to fire a bow and arrow. Note: I am not responsable for anything that happens using these bows, use them at your own risk! If you managed to make more than one bow, hide around your house with a friend and spend a day firing pencil crayons at each other, its quite fun, and dangerous.

    nice im going to try that myself it looks very nice i hope mine works out

    how about those pointy long sticks u can buy @ albertsons or ralphs?

    I tried using screwers ( which didn't work) but I never thought of toothpicks. I guess you would need a smaller elastic and smaller arrows.

    i am gonna make instructable on toothpick bow

    the toothpicks only have to stay in water 10 seconds.

    i will do it with some toothpicks as the bow i will tell you how it works

    pencil crayons are coloured pencils
