The latest in the line of props I have had to make for our bible assemblies is a Spear for the story of David and Goliath.
I had a spare garden cane, that I used for the handle. Then, I took some thick card, well it was 2mm pulp board, really quite thick, and cut out the shape of the spear head.
I covered the length of the garden cane with black duct tape and the cardboard spear head with the normal silver duct tape.
The top of the garden cane already had a split on one side, so I took my craft knife and matched the split with a notch on the other side. I slipped the base of the spear head into that notch. You might be able to see here that it sits IN the cane at the top.
Then I attached the spear head to the cane using more silver duct tape in various different directions to keep it secure.
The only problem with all these props for these assemblies, is where to store them. This one is 6feet long! Oh and I have to walk up to school today carrying a bag of costumes and this, and it's raining! Ho hum!
