Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
You will need:

hundreds of old pencil crayons
an elastic

tools:
hacksaw
pot
stove

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 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.
