Boomerang No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

As a shop teacher, I like to create fun cheap projects that are simple to make. One of the most popular projects is a boomerang. I have seen many different ways to make a boomerang. I like this type because it is easy to throw and doesn’t need as much space. While I was at Home Depot I noticed that the 5 gallon paint sticks were the perfect size to make a boomerang with. This made my job easy because I didn’t need to cut out all the blanks for the students and most stores will give me the sticks for free. When they are finished it is hard to tell that they are just paint sticks. I just started a YouTube channel that showes a video how to make a boomerang. I put the video on my blog or you can look at my youtube channel
