    You can lay the bottom one in place and have them just do the top on to match on the other side, whichever is easiest.

    Now it is time for the feathers, this one is a little more tricky so mom might need to take over with the hot glue gun.

  • Step 8

    Don't worry, while you are putting together the feather ends, the kids won't be missing out on anything.. my daughter had a good 15 minutes of fun just blowing all of the feathers everywhere... I didn't mind one bit because I was able to get the hot glue gun part over before she knew it was time to move on to the next step. This section was the only reason I rated this project messy ;)

    You can also take this project one step further & construct a bow for your arrow with the baker's twine & a stick. All credit to this part goes to my husband, what would we do without a guy's mind!?
