Step 1: Materials

You will need 3 clothespins and 6 rubber bands. And that must be the size of one of the 6 rubber bands.

Step 2: The First Part

Take one clothespin then take off the other half (we won't need it), also the spring. Then take the rubber band and put it on the half part then tie two rubber bands on the ends.

Step 3: Put the First and Second Piece Together Then Add a Rubber Band in Between.

Please make the rubber band tight so that it won't fall apart.

Step 4: Take the First and Second Piece and Connect It With the Third Piece With Rubber Band/s

Take a rubber band and tie it the end of the second piece then place the third piece in between. Then you have your mini clothespin crossbow.
