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)
nice work love the simplicity definetly going to make and mod it
look at mine pls
Practical use of LEGO. Well done.
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.
