How to Make a Popsicle Stick Bomb
The easiest way to make one is to start with 3 popsicle sticks and position them with the tips on top of each other making an arrow type shape. Spread them evenly apart as you will need to thread the next popsicle stick over and under the three horizontally. With the fifth popsicle stick, position it horizontally below the fourth one, but the skill here is to do the over and under the opposite to the fourth stick. You may need to bend the popsicle sticks a little given there will be tension and friction to hold the sticks in place. Now you are ready to throw your popsicle stick bomb against a wall and watch it explode!
