Step 3: For the first part of the bridge, set down a layer of 5 sticks that are end to end that lines up to about 32 inches on the yard stick. Put dots glue on top of the sticks. Then put another layer of 5 sticks that is the same length on top of those sticks that overlaps on the center of those 5 sticks. to make the them doubled. Let it dry when finished. Do not pick up the sticks until dried, there's a possibility that it will move out of place.
Step 4: Set down another layer of 8 sticks end to end that measures out to 37 inches. Put dots of glue on top of the sticks. Put another layer of 8 sticks on top overlapping the center measuring the same length. Let it dry when finished.

Step 9: Step 8 once for the other side of the bridge.
Step 10: Once the glue has dried, make 10 sets of sticks that are 10 inches (2 sticks doubled overlapped on the center).
