Step 1: Materials

Things you will need

.Cork (marker cap, glue stick cap will also work)
.Plastic Spoon (spork may be used as a substitute)
.Cardboard
.Hot Glue Gun
.A Couple of Hot Glue Gun Sticks
.A Pencil (pen may be used also)

Step 2: The Base

The base of the catapult I made holds the whole structure and keeps the cork and the spoon form flying off some where. The base is made up of two sheets of 1 mm thick cardboard. The cardboard should be cut up into two rectangular pieces of cardboard a little bigger than an index card. The size of my base is six inches long and 3 inches wide. After you have your two cardboard pieces you should put glue (I used hot glue) on one of the cardboard pieces and smash 'em together and wait for the glue to dry.

Step 3: The Cork

As the picture should plain the cork can be placed a couple inches before the middle or maybe on the middle. It would help a lot more if you would hold the spoon against the cork and try and find the spot to put the cork that would work best with you. After you've found the spot to place your cork you should mark it with a pencil, and put hot glue (make sure you don't put to much hot glue) where you marked the spot and put the cork on the hot glue and wait for it to dry.

This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image of the final project to the intro step. Please do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks!
