supplies: Popsicle sticks, dental floss, knife, q-tips
Step 1: Make notches on both ends of the Popsicle sticks with a knife (you may have to zoom in to get a better look).
Step 2: Soak the Popsicle sticks in water for at least an hour (to help them bend)
Step 3: Snip off one end of the Q-tips to make the arrows (I used a sharp pair of scissors) and did this while the Popsicle sticks were soaking
Step 4: Wrap a long strand of floss around one end of the Popsicle stick a few times and triple knot it. Then gently bend the stick and wrap the floss around the other side a few times and triple knot it. Cut off any leftover floss that is hanging off.
Viola!!! We gave each girl who came to the party their very own bow with 3 little arrows in a Ziploc bag. They had so much fun with them. I know we will be making plenty more of these soon - my boys want their own as well! What a fun, easy craft!
