Picture of Bic Crossbow
After playing around with the Bic bow and arrow, I came up with this little modification.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
Clothespin - Honestly any sort of clamp will do. The stronger it is, the longer you can make the shaft.

Pencil - Can be replaced for something longer. See above.


Bic bow and arrow - use a big thick rubber band, it makes things shoot a LOT farther.

Step 2: Bow and Arrow

this is how to make the bow and arrow. I wont get into those details here, so go make the bow and come back to step 3 after that.

Step 3: Finishing Up

Tape the clothespin (or clamp) to one end of the pencil. make sure the clamp end is facing towards the opposite end of the pencil.

Use more tape to attach the bow to the other end of the pencil. See pictures for details.

NOTE: if you wrap another rubber band around the cloths pin, you can make make the clamp stronger. if that doesn't make sense, just ignore this - its not essential. try it if you are having trouble getting the projectile locked in place.

Step 4: Loading/Firing

load the ink cartridge just like you do for the bow and pull it back so it clips into the cloths pin. aim, and fire!!

Load the ink cartridge just like you would with the original bow. Pull the rubber band and "arrow" back and clamp it in your clothespin (or whatever you decided to use).

To fire, just release the clamp, and watch it go!
