Inspired by a combination of Scout lashing activities and the books of William Gurstelle, combined with the need to rescale for a classroom or club activity, I present The Desktop Viking Catapult.
Step 1: Materials
- Six bamboo skewers
- At least eleven elastic bands.
- A small plastic pot or bowl.
- Something to cut the bamboo - wire-cutters work well.
- Ammunition (dried peas, paper pellets etc)
- Space to play.
- Opponents to battle.
