Step 1: What You Need

For this variation of a stick bomb you need:
- 4 Popsicle Sticks
- 2 Hands
- Patience, my friend

Step 2: The Sign of the Cross

Arrange the sticks in a cross like pattern, like the picture, and make sure the one on the top is facing the right way.

Step 3: Hold Tight

Now, holding the cross in your hand, place a stick on the right side of the cross, going under the bottom stick and over the top one.
You will need to use your forefinger and palm to hold this in place for the next step.
If you get stuck use the picture as a guide.

Step 4: Finish and Throw

This is the tricky bit and is hard to explain.....so i will explain anyway:
- put the final stick on the left side of the cross going the opposite way (over and then under)
- move the two outer sticks towards each other in an arrow shape and put the left one over the right one
It should hold and if it does congratulations, just throw it like you would throw a Frisbee and when it hits a wall watch explode into millions (actually 4) pieces. Enjoy and please tell me what you think
