Nephi's Bow FHE



After last week's FHE in a teepee, we just couldn't pass up buying these bow & arrows at the Lewisburg Arts Festival yesterday. They were by far the crowd favorite, and I'm pretty sure the seller made a killing with them. But you could make some yourself and have a fun lesson about what Nephi did in the Book of Mormon when he broke his bow (he made a new one, of course!). Here are some instructions that I found online. These bows are made out of 1/2 inch pvc pipe and nylon string. The arrows are made using multiple layers of foam padding tied around a bit of wooden rod with a notch at the end where the arrow and string meet.

  5. haha...now that's my kind of FHE! The kites, by the way, were such a hit. We had 10 little girlies running all over the yard trying to not get tangled and a having a blast. Now it only seems fair to try out the bow and arrows...
