The staff of the MAKESHOP loves to have fun with our visitors. A couple of weeks ago, a bunch of us were introduced to a project known as a “Craft Stick Explosion.” We were trying to do some simple weaving with craft sticks for some of our younger visitors. We discovered a project that allows you to weave craft sticks together and then cause them to “explode” through an interesting chain reaction.
The process of creating these specific weaves is somewhat difficult, but it’s worth it. Both visitors and staff had a great time watching us set off our various craft stick explosions.
If you want to try this at home, then check out this Instructable.
