How to make your very own Catapult!
This craft works brilliantly for building stories around, teaching children about how catapults can launch lighter items further than heavier items, how you can tilt and aim your catapult towards goals and targets and so much more.
You will need:
8 x Small lolly sticks
2 x Large lolly sticks
3 x Elastic bands
Double sided tape
1 x bottle top
Step 1: Stack the small lolly sticks and tie with an elastic band on each end.
Step 2: Push 1 of the large lolly sticks through the bottom two small sticks as in the video above.
Step 3: Put the other large stick on the top of the stack (as above) and secure both together with an elastic band.
Step 4: Pop some double sided tape on the back of the bottle top and secure it to the top of the large lolly stick.
Step 5: Load up the catapult with something light and fire away!
