Introduction: Cool Bow and Arrow

The bow and arrow is a weapon used by many people in the past and present. Today I am gonna show you how to make one.


1. cardboard

2. rubber band

3. hot glue

4. markers

5. pencils

7. tape

Step 1: The Bow

First, cut 6 separate pieces of cardboard. hot glue 2 pieces together and do that until you have no more cardboard pieces. hot glue all of the pieces like how I did in the picture above (notice that in the next step I cut the edges of the bows a little shorter).

Step 2: The String

This step is really simple. All you have to do is add the rubber band to the edges of the bow and put a piece of cardboard in the middle of the bow to show where your thumb is supposed to be when you shoot it.

Step 3: Coloring

This step is only about coloring, and the colors totally depend on you. If you don't want to color, that's ok.

Step 4: Arrow (optional)

This step is optional because you can make a different arrow than mine. All you need to do is roll a piece of cardboard and put the 2 pencils inside like how I did. Then, put tape. Congratulations, you have finished making your bow and arrow.
