Standard directions for making a straw and spitball:
1. Choose any one of the diagrams on the back of page 2.
2. Place a strip of Scotch tape inside the blue box.
3. Cut along the red dotted line.
4. Fold straw in half lengthwise so that the tape is on the inside and the stripes on the outside.
5. Attach a strip of Scotch tape along one edge of the straw and then fold over to tape the straw shut. This ensures an airtight seal.
6. Place a round object such as a pencil or chopstick inside the straw and gently roll to make it more tube-like.
7. Cut the image of one of the artworks from the slide sheet on page 3 and chew.
8. Place the spitball into one end of the straw.
9. Blow from other end, aiming at your targe.
10. Repeat steps 7 through 9, as more spitballs are needed.
