Introduction: Cardboard Shooting Targets
The aim of this mini projects for 9 y.o. is to create a shooting targets from typical Czech playing cards. You will need cardboard, glue, ruler (metal is best), cutting knife, glue spreader, wooden sticks.
Step 1: Spreading Glue
Spread the glue on the cards one by one.
Step 2: Glue to the Cardboard
Place the card on the cardboard and when you are finished, cover with food foil.
Step 3: Press and Wait
Cover the top with another cardboard and put some weight on the top. This will help the glue to set and keep the cards flat. The food foil helps to separate the cardboards.
Step 4: Cut Out
Cut out the cards from the cardboard using metal rules. Keep your fingers out!
Step 5: Glue the Other Side
Spread some glue on the other side and press second card on the top.
Step 6: Press Again
Stack up one on the other and press again. Put some weight on top of the stack. If your work is clean, you do not need the foil here.
Step 7: Sharpen Wooden Sticks
Make a sharp end on your sticks to help them to go through the cardboard.
Step 8: Finished Targets
Targets are ready. Stick them in the pot and you are ready to go.

Nice project. Nostalgic for me because I haven't seen those cards in years. Used to play a game called Klabberjass with my grandparents using them.
