Introduction: Jen & Tom's Lego Hair Tie / Rubber Band Gun

Out of sheer frustration trying to teach a 4 and 6 year old to shoot rubber bands with their fingers I made this simple rubber band gun.  

You should be able to see from the photos how to piece it together.  It shoots about 3-4 metres (totally dependant on the rubber band or hair tie)

Thanks, as a kid I always used to build robots and 4wd rock crawlers out of lego, it tought me a lot about mechanics and associated principles. Later when I got into cars, I used my lego supercar models to show friends the principles of steering, suspension and differentials as used in real cars. The lego cars are very accurate.
