Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Parts
Be sure to get all of the parts in the picture. Remember, not all of the parts have to be the same color, just the same size and shape of them.
Step 2: The Main Body
Build two of these.
Step 3: Connecting the Two
Follow the pictures on how to connect the two pieces.
Step 4: The Hard Part
Now, somehow stretch the two rubber bands across the wheels to act as a bowstring. Then wrap them around the two rods holding the snowflake piece up like in the picture.
Step 5: Holding the Bow and Firing
Hold the bow as shown in the picture, the arrow (any long rod) goes through the center of the snowflake piece, Pull it back however you like.
