Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: The Middle

take two center brown pieces and a elastic band
begin to thread the band through the knex like so
tie the ends together

Step 2: The Middle

add two snow flake things
and place two blue clips to hold them

Step 3: The Skin

place all eight side clips on
do not push them on to hard
or they wont blow up

Step 4: The Rest

and lastly just place a good amount of elastic band on the white snowflakes not on the side clips(you want them to come off easily)

Step 5: Done

and you're all done just throw him and it'll explode
i put a video on to show it exploding with my new state of the art bomb tester
(sorry you will have to turn you're head!)

    dang! the only way i could make it is if it only went 5 ft! lol sry for the false hope......=( ive tried more ruberbands but it just makes it more unuseable...
