The Pencil Crossbow
Another brilliant rubber band bow
You will need
- Sticky tape
- Cotton buds (for ammo)
- 4 pencils
- Plastic drinking straw
- Rubber bands
- Some help from an adult!
Tie two pencils together at both ends with rubber bands
And tie the other two together as well, but only at one end
Tie the pencils together in a cross shape with more rubber bands, like this:
Cut a small piece of drinking straw off with scissors
Slip the piece of drinking straw underneath a rubber band. It should look like this:
Stretch a rubber band over the front two pencils and test it by pulling it back
Load your crossbow up with cotton buds...pull back...and fire!
Make sure you don't fire it at anyone!
