I love the “bow and arrow” theme with Valentine’s Day but what good is a bow and arrow if it doesn’t really work? Here’s a fun craft that DOES work!

You’ll need a straw and a basic rubberband bracelet (contruction paper and glue/tape optional). If you don’t have a rubberband loom here is instructions on how to make a basic bracelet without the loom. You can pick up the rubberbands and clasps at most craft stores or Target/Walmart.

The construction paper was completely for my benefit – the boys could care less about it, but would be fun to add if you’re giving this as a gift!

You could even make some paper plate targets for those arrows!
