You Should Put This on the Blog


John Paul is all stick bombs lately.
I didn't know what they were either and I don't even remember how he stumbled upon the Youtube videos that enchanted him with all their kinetic energy goodness.  But even I can admit they're kind of fun.  (Search stick bombs on Youtube and you'll see.)

Last week he used some of his leaf money (and a 40% off coupon because he's my son) to buy a box of craft sticks at the store.  He spent several days building tracks for hours at a time and asked me to record a few for him.
And ever the showman he is, he then declared,
"You should put this on the blog."
Alrighty then.


(This one was taken by Michael hence the poor camera positioning.  Sorry!)

I love that he named the one "The Cobra."

(I love Michael's laugh in this one!)

Questions?
I can't answer them but maybe the resident bomb expert can :)

  1. My sons enjoyed watching them! We have a box of sticks but it I couldn't talk them into it at the moment. They said it looked too hard. I'm sure they will want to try it at some point this winter!
