Sure, crafts made out of Popsicle sticks are cute. But where's the lesson in elastic energy? Where's the brilliantly explosive spring-loaded device? Where's the fun of watching your creation detonate with surprising force and speed? They're all right here in the Stick Bombs kit.

Weave together multi-colored Popsicle sticks and tongue depressors in countless configurations and get ready to be awed by the chain reaction that starts by removing just one stick. The instruction booklet includes directions for building eight Stick Bombs, as well as a catapult, a ballista, and a slingshot.

Those last three will come in handy for ambushing pesky kid brothers or waging office warfare on a slow Friday afternoon when the boss is away.

The Idea

Make use of potential kinetic energy with Popsicle stick grenades and launchers.

The Brains

Exercise fine motor skills and spatial perception when making and tossing these sticks.

The A-Ha

Contains tongue depressors, Popsicle sticks, rubber bands, goggles, and instructions.

Brain Health Expert Says

The parietal lobe, important for spatial perception, and areas involved in perfecting fine motor skills are activated when you use the simple sticks to create more complex shapes.

The Brain Coach Says

With the instructions in Stick Bombs, you can make several 'exploding' or 'launching' designs. It comes with a ton of sticks - enough to keep anyone busy building and 'detonating' for months!

Here comes the boom!

Great but...

The stick bombs are a fun entertaining but tedious activity to pick up when bored but the instructions are not very well written I will say it can be fun to make your own objects out of the instructions but if you are giving this to a child they might have trouble. They also show in the pictures the sticks perfectly down but all of the time they just hover and move when you put down another stick. I would recommend them if you are looking for a fun thing to do when your bored but not for something to sit home and do all day.

Excellent Basic Physics

I purchased Stick Bomb for my sons ages 8 and 10.
It makes a super introductory physics lesson for stored/potential energy, and it's very hands-on, which they love.
Yesss, the blue sticks turn your fingers blue, especially if you are the person holding down the sticks as you assemble the bomb.
But it's NOT like they turn Avatar blue; just a bit blue on all the tips. The color doesn't all wash out with soap and water the first time, either, but I guess you could say it really doesn't bother us.
Overall, we really enjoy building bombs together as a family!
Two BLUE thumbs-up!
