Step 1: Get the Container
Get a container from a card box [ you can usually get them from a souvenier store]
Step 2: Cut Sticks
Cut the popsiclle sticks as so
- 4 sticks short way across
- 3 sticks long way across
- 2 sticks 3/4 of the way long
It doesn't have to be exact.
The best way to cut them is to get a pair of plyers with a cutter thing in the back of it.
Step 3: Make It
glue 2 width wide popsicle sticks width wise on top of eachother then put them in the bottom front on the tin.
Step 4: Make It
Put the 3/4 sticks next to each other and attach them with a crossbeam that is the width of the box.
Next put another one of the width long sticks on top of it. It doesn't have to be exact.
then make a hinge with duct tape on the front of the box but behind the sticks u put on earlier.
Step 5: Make It
Put 2 length sized sticks length wide
and hinge them off the back on the bottom
Step 6: Make It
Hinge the arm of the catapult off the front on top of the two sticks glued together
with duct tape
Cut the rubberband a little bit longer than the width of the box and glue it to the first thing you put on
put a small cap on the end
