Target, and or Can Friend




This little guy could be a target for one of those office guns, like the super maul gun or mechanical pencil gun, or just be a little buddy to put on your desk, or just throw him away when your done, and just use this as a time-waster

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

Step 1: Getting Your Stuff

First off, your gonna need:

an empty can of any kind,
two ink refils from any normal bic pen
two washers, not huge, but normal size,
duct tape

also, you can have colored duct tape, a sharpie, and something
that will fit ontop of the can that is fun :)

now put the duct tape all around the can, but not on the top or bottom

Step 2: The Arms

now wrap the duct tape around the ink part of the pen,(you know, the casing, not the tip)

Step 3: Tape on the Arms

Take a small piece of duct tape and tape the top of the ink refil on the can, somewhat above the middle, put them in any position you want, aslong as it doesnt fall over everytime you put it back up

Step 4: The Feet

now take the washers and wrap some of the duct tape completely around it, i didnt in the pic though, it doesnt really matter either way

Step 5: Add the Feet

tape the washers to the bottom of the can, then they dangle, right? tape it on top of the washer to the top of the can, they should protrude a little bit

Step 6: Fun Stuff

I decided to add a crustacean to my little buddy, i also gave him a smiley face, add whatever you see fit, it doesnt have to be a good old crustacean
