Step 1: What You Need

For This instructable, you will need:
Rubber bands, stretchy ones
Lots of clips.
(Op) StyroFoam and paint

These are so simple you can mass produce these easily and fast.

Step 2: Making the Arrows

Bend the Paper clip out, leaving 1 side still hooked.
Make lots of these, they are easy to get lost.

Step 3: Target Practice

Get The Styrofoam and make a bulls eye dart board using the paint.
Notch the curved end of the Band Like This.
Pull Back Hard and let go. The clip will lodge itself into the foam.
SCORE:Do the normal scoring for the bulls eye dart boards, but also add
pionts for how much it goes in.

Step 4: Super Sizing It?

If you want to make this huge, you would need a wire cloths hanger and a huge rubber band. Send me pictures in the commets if you make them!
Please commet and rate.
Have Fun!
