The first step is to place your thumb and index finger on the toothpick so that it’s between both of your fingers.
Once you’ve found a good grip on the toothpick, use your middle and ring fingers to flick the toothpick out.
A lot of people make the mistake of using their thumb and index finger to flick the toothpick out. This only puts your fingers at risk and does not give enough force into flicking it out.
This is what your hand should look like when you’re holding the toothpick properly.
Flicking the toothpick out can be difficult at first, but with a little practice, you’ll get it down in no time.
The second step is to fling the toothpick out so that it sticks into something. There are two ways to do this: 1) Aim for dirt or mud and try to stick the toothpick into it. 2) Do a trick where you aim for your hand or another object.
Some people enjoy doing “trick shots” by throwing the toothpick into their hand or another object in a challenging manner. It’s possible, but it takes time and practice to master the trick shot you want. These are just some of the examples of what can be done with a toothpick.
Now that you know how to master the toothpick, try out some of your own tricks! You can also use different objects with a toothpick. Have fun!
So that’s how to flick a toothpick.
