Popsicle sticks lock together, to make a butterfly shaped throwing star that explodes on impact.

Project Inspired By: Childhood memories, and recently making these with my kids. I had a lot of fun with these as a kid, and I wanted to make a video tutorial with loads of different shapes and sizes you may not have seen before.

Project History & More Info:

I remember learning how to make some popsicle stick bombs in my early years, but can’t exactly remember where or how. Probably some random kid showed me at school, but I never forgot how to make them.

At the time, it seemed really cool to be able to create a “throwing star” that would explode when it hit the wall, and now that my kids are a little bit older but still young enough to enjoy popsicle sticks), I thought this might be a great project to try with them.

I got a couple of bags of craft sticks and scoured the internet for different kinds of throwing stars or stick bombs that we could make. We ended up making 8 different kinds of stick bombs, which you’ll see how to make in a future video.

I’ve had hundreds of messages and comments asking for easy projects with simple materials, and this is about as simple as I can make it, however, I expect most of my viewers won’t like it because it’s a project geared toward a really young audience.

But if you’re a dad, your kids are going to love it .. so go have some daddy time, and make a bunch of exploding stick bombs!
