To change things up from my regular posts, I decided to write instructions on how to make a simple catapult. When finished, I found that the best items to launch from this type of catapult was mini marshmallows commonly found for a few dollars at a grocery store. I chose a simple design that would be easy for the boys to follow and would allow plenty of time to launch marshmallows at a target. Step 2 – Tie another rubber band tightly around the opposite end so all 7 sticks are bound together. Step 4 – Insert the 7 sticks banded together through the 2 stick bundle as shown in the illustration below. If these instructions helped you in anyway, please leave me a comment or link to this page so others can find these instructions as well.
Take your 28 inch long piece and drill a hole in one end so your broomstick or pipe slides easily through it.
The Bungee Cord is the most important thing so using different cords will change the strengthh or adding a second cord. The pivot point (The hole in the swing arm that the broomstick goes through) is an important energy point. He had to do his first science fair project this past week and didn't start it nearly in enough time in my mind. Ours is basically like one of the very first ones posted with the list of items and even lengths listed and rubber bands. I went to that website, and i did not see any catapult that looked like the one you guys did. Whether you are wanting to make the nativity ornaments or the Minecraft, the inserts all work the same.

This week, several excellent bloggers have teamed up to provide a play series of ideas for what to do with ALL of the candy that will be entering our homes this month!
We’re going to show you four different catapult versions that can all be built with items from around this house. Some friends of ours helped us come up with good catapult designs, and all of the boys (8 boys total!) had fun launching candy corn!
Aidan’s friend built this awesome catapult out of clothes pins, craft sticks, binder clips, rubber bands, duct tape, and a plastic spoon. The design for this catapult was modified from the siege catapult in Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction: Build Implements of Spitball Warfare. I’m a Den Leader for my local Webelos cub scouts group and we are working on the engineering activity badge. Many designs (including the one provided in the scout handbook) were fairly complex and would require a long time to built. Slide the broomstick through one end of the catapult, through the swing arm then through the other end of the catapult. Generally the longer the swing arm the more power you will get so try using a piece of wood that is longer than 28 inches. If it is too tight, or too loose it will absorb energy and decrease the efficiency of your catapult. I'm sure glad I have a handy husband that can go make something like this ping pong catapult with him though! A However, it would also be fun to just provide the materials and let your kids experiment with building the best catapult. A The popsicle stick that goes across at the top stops the spoon and ensures that the candy corn is launched at the right angle.

A Please note that this book has a lot of fun projects, but it’s not actually geared toward kids. They absolutely love decorating them with felt pens, and shooting off anything they think won’t put an eye out. You don't have to make a cup you could cut down a plastic cup so it is about 2 inches deep and staple that down. When you do this you will probably have to tinker with the location of the crossbar to get things just right. A Building and testing catapults to see which shoot candy corn the farthest would make a fun fall playdate!
A The title is very tongue-in-cheek and refers to cubicle workers building mini weapons out of office supplies. This catapult can be used as a craft idea for kids on a slow weekend or it can be used as a school project. After following these instructions, it only took the scouts about 10 minutes to complete everything and start participating in trying out their new catapult. Whether its a wood craft, painting, papercrafting, simple sewing, vinyl, new recipes, photography adventures, or fun with my Silhouette, join me for tutorials and loads of fun! A Owen (age 4) could shoot this catapult easily, and he didn’t care where it shot – he just had fun launching candy corn!
A We built our version with a plastic spoon, and our friends built theirs with a bottle cap.
