  9. Make four of these bases
  10. When completely dry * take another hand full of popsicle sticks
  11. Take 2 of your bases and place them parallel of each other, about a popstick length away from each other
  12. Place 2 sticks right beside each other- put on the edges of the bases you have set out ( 2 picture shown at the bottom)
  13. Take another 1/8 of glue and spread where nessasary ( grab more each time)
  14. Place each pair into a triangle figure, place all through the base until you can't put anymore( picture 2 shows how the sides are supposed to look)
  15. Make sure your triangles are all even( to make sure put a popsicle stick (use 1/8 glue again) and glue on the opening of the triangle to make the perfect length)

  2. Grab 3 empty water bottles
  3. Place the sides up right, and put the water bottles evenly inside the two sides

  5. After you secure the bands in place, start by adding more glue and place 8 X shapes A on the top of your bridge
  6. Some will not stick down all the way, cut a rubber band in half, and tie around the bridge the place that needs to be secure. --- repeat as needed
  7. Place 7 popsicles next to each other, then glue 2 popsicle sticks
  8. Repeat step 7
  9. Adding along the top, make two bases (steps 7&8) so the bridge can lay evenly on the table
