I got this idea from frugalfun4boys.com and found several tutorials on YouTube. I thought it was so awesome I had to try it. It is a weave of craft sticks that explodes in a chain reaction when released. The most difficult part is getting it started. It takes a little trial and error so don’t get frustrated if it doesn’t work perfectly the first few times you try.
Step 1: Place one stick over another at a slight angle.
Step 2: Slide a third stick under the bottom stick and over the top stick and position perpendicular to stick 2.
Step 3: Slide stick 4 under stick 1 and over stick 3 and position parallel to stick 2.
Step 4: Continue place sticks in alternating directions by sliding them under the stick 3 layers down and over the stick on top.
