|Toy Bow and Arrow
1) A straight tree branch (about 2 feet long).
2) A piece of string (as long as the branch).
3) A knife.
4) Thin branches (about a feet long).
5) Small Styrofoam pieces/foam block.
6) Feathers/cardboard strips.
How to make:
1) Cut a branch, about 2 ft. long and approximately an inch in diameter, from a tree using the knife you have. Make sure it is hard enough to sustain bending.
2) Cut a nick into each end of the branch.
3) Tie one end of the string firmly around the nick of one end of the branch.
4) Bend the branch a little from the middle and wound the string around the other end to finish the basic structure of the bow.
5) Cut 3 to 4 slots near the back end and a notch in the butt of each of the thin branch strips.
6) Stick feathers/cardboard strips into the slots as fins to make the arrows more steady in their flight.
7) Fix a small Styrofoam/foam block to the front of each of the arrows to ensure the safety of everyone around.
1) Wax (of any type)
2) Plain Paraffin Wax
3) A bowl
4) Candle/Candy/Meat Thermometer
5) Kitchen Stove
6) Large Coffee Can
7) Candle Color
8) A large pot
9) Pure Fragrance Oil/Concentrated Scent (without water or alcohol base)
10) Wick of Right Size (a little more than the candle size it is meant for)
11) Wooden Spoon (to stir)
12) A sharp knife
1) Chop the wax into little bits. This would help it melt quickly.
2) Fill half of the pot with water and heat it on medium temperature. Keep on heat until the water comes to a gentle boil.
3) Now pour the wax pieces into the coffee can. Place the wax-filled can into the water.
4) Use the wooden spoon to stir the wax time and again. Continue this until the wax melts fully at 160 F. Use the thermometer to measure the accurate temperature.
5) Lower the temperature. This will keep the water warm and the wax melted.
6) Now slowly add the color to the wax until you get the hue you exactly want. Allow the wax to cool for some time.
7) As the wax cools down, you will find the wax color paling a little too. You can add a little cool wax to get the accurate shade.
8) The colour has been taken care of, but what about the shade? Pour a little amount of fragrance oil/concentrated scent into the wax until it smells just right. Make sure that you do not pour too much oil as you may find it difficult to burn the candle later.
9) Now you have to make the candle. You can either make a single thick candle or two-three candles of average thickness. If the latter is your choice, use a wick that is more than twice in length of that of the candle.
10) Fold the wick in the middle and slowly dip it in the melted wax.
11) Take the wick out after you have dipped it in wax for a few seconds. Dip it in cool water bowl to cool the wax. Immerese again in the wax until you get a candle form.
12) Go on like this until several candles are formed.
12) When the candles are as thick as you want, roll them on smooth surface to get rid of the irregularities.
13) Heat the remaining wax again at 182 F. Dip the candles one by one in the wax again for a few seconds. Take out and keep aside to cool.
14) Use a sharp knife to trim the bottom of the candle to give it a straight edge.
1) The picture of Hanumana (Click here for Hanuman Mask Template).
2) Light cardboard pieces (preferably paper plates or breakfast cereal boxes)
3) Some non-toxic paints/crayons/coloured pencils.
5) Thin elastic/string.
6) A pair of scissors.
7) Sticky tape or stapler
8) Glitter or feathers.
1) Print out the template.
2) Carefully cut out the face of Hanumana from the printout.
3) Glue the cutout onto the cardboard.
4) Cut out only the portion fitted with the mask.
4) Cut out holes in place of the eyes and the nose. Adult assistance is probably needed.
5) Make two small holes on either side of your mask to attach some string/elastic to it. Attach some elastic to each side of your mask.
6) Colour the mask using paint/crayons/coloured pencils. Use glitter, feathers or wool to decorate your mask.
5) Allow the paint and glue to dry. Your mask will be ready to wear.
