These craft stick catapults are fun and simple to put together and are a great boredom buster for when you're stuck indoors.
My boys had so much fun playing with their little catapults!
They had a great time seeing how high and how far they could shoot their pom-poms.
Want to have a blast with your own catapults? Follow the instructions below to make your own!
Gather your supplies: large craft sticks, rubber bands, bottle caps, pom-pom balls (for launching)
Stack seven craft sticks together and bind them at each end using a rubber band.
In the center of your bound sticks place a stick at the top and underneath, perpendicular to the others. Bind together with rubber bands as shown below.
Bind the tip closed with another rubber band.
Glue the bottle cap 1/2 inch from the end of the stick. You will need room for your finger to pull back the stick and launch the pom-pom balls.
Have fun with your new catapult!
