Bow Making Process (30 minutes):
- An adult cuts hard wood dowel rods (3/8 x 48 inches) in half - enough for each child to have one.
- Children do the rest: Cover the dowel rods completely with beeswax to fill in niches.
- Sand the dowel rod with medium grit and finish with a finer grade.
- Test to be sure there's no remaining beeswax residue by rubbing a dark cloth over the dowel rod. If it sticks or leaves a residue, keep sanding until it's nice and smooth.
"Like a hero standing tall,
Victorious, ready, proud and strong.

Lift my arm up, I'm ready to fly."
