Step 1: Punch Holes at the Edges of 6 Tongue Depressors
Step 2: Use Wooden Dowels to Connect 3 of Them in a Triangle Shape
Step 3: Create the Arm With More Tongue Depressors
Step 4: Assemble the Arm Around One of the Wooden Dowels
Step 5: Tip: Use Parchment Paper to Shape Glue Joints
Using parchment paper (the paper our moms bake on), you can shape the joint as you like as the parchment paper does not adhere to the hot glue when it cools off
Step 6: Place Rubber Bands
Step 7: Create Props With Paper, Glued on Neoprene Foam
Step 8: See the Video for a Detailed How-to
