Any play on Ramayana is incomplete without the bow and arrow (teer Kamaan). You can make your own bow and arrow, too, but be careful not to hurt anyone.

You will need:

Elastic, broomstick, plasticine, stem of any tree, scissors and paints.

Step 1: Bend the stem in the form of an arc making sure it does not break. Tie elastic from one end to the other.

Step 2: For the arrow, take one stick out from the broom. Trim it.

Step 3: Make a ball out of plasticine and stick it at one end of the arrow. This will not hurt anyone while you play with your bow and arrow.
