Hello, welcome to Chowman's second instructable! Before we begin, I know that the pictures are blurry, I used a Nintendo DSi to take the pictures because no other camera I could find took SD cards. Anyway, this is an easy catapult to make, and it shoots far at the maximum pull-back. I couldn't find a plastic spoon to use for the "shooting spoon", so I made one. I am not responsible for any harm you do to others or yourself. I am also not responsible for burns caused by hot glue. Now let's get started! :D

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Here is all you need:

1 x Big Popsicle Stick
1 x Rubber Band
20-25 x Total Skill Sticks
1 x Plastic Spoon(optional, I didn't have one)

Glue Gun
where do you get skill sticks!?!?!?!
At most craft stores. I forget how much they are because I bought mine a long time ago. I got mine at hobby lobby, and they aren't very expensive. I'd recommend not getting the painted ones, due to the plain ones being more efficient.
