Introduction: Finger Catapult

Picture of Finger Catapult

This is a simple catapult made from elastic band and a piece of paper as ammo.
I use to do this all the time when I was younger, and for something so simple it use to keep us entertained for many hours.

Step 1: Materals Needed

Cut the paper as shown. You can use the template attached or any piece of paper. (My printer didn’t print the template straight, but it’s not important for this to be accurate.) one sheet will make four pieces of ammo and four targets.
