This posting will show you the simple step by step process to making a small catapult (as shown below) out of mostly Popsicle sticks. Here is also a link to my video showing how to make the catapult step by step: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuNfdv0yFTg



Start by grouping 5 or 6 Popsicle sticks together with an elastic band


Attach one Popsicle stick in the center of the bundle, by wrapping them together with a slightly larger elastic band



Glue 3 Popsicle sticks on the back to form a base as shown below



 Glue a bottle cap to the top of the arm to carry the projectile



Test out the catapult by pulling it back and releasing. If you want to get more distance attach an elastic band from the back of the base to the bottom of the arm.



  1. The very core of your writing while appearing agreeable initially, did not settle well with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you actually managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a while. I however have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you would do nicely to help fill in all those gaps. In the event that you can accomplish that, I could surely be amazed.

  2. I cling on to listening to the news update talk about receiving free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the most excellent site to get one. Could you tell me please, where could i get some?

  3. Just about all of what you articulate happens to be astonishingly legitimate and it makes me wonder why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. This particular article truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this specific subject goes. However at this time there is just one point I am not necessarily too comfy with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the central idea of the issue, permit me see exactly what the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Very well done.
