We made these when I was a kid in the 60s. Lots of fun having "fights" because you have to aim at the floor near your opponent, and they never hurt. I always thought 5 must be the minimum number required, but I mentioned that in a lecture to a class and one kid took it as a challenge and found a way to make the same sort of thing with only 4 sticks! It takes more of a criss-cross design. I can't remember if it pops as well. Hmmm, wonder about making one with a LOT of sticks, to make a bigger "explosion"...

 This is so easy to make I can virtually make 15 in one minute!!! Well, you have to get used to it first...

btw, on the last pic, you forgot something on that "FUN" part, in the "N", there's something missing...

but it's still annoying because it's cool! (Don't mind this)

Don't want to be rude...But what good is a popscicle bomb??? Try making a nerf bomb or something

Van Halen (author)Colonel882008-05-03

I don't know, just for fun. It's easy to make and the material is really cheap. Oh yea, and I don't have nerf stuff.
