This is an oldie, and I guess probably originated as a variation on the wind up elastic planes.
It's fairly simple, and a great one to do with kids.

*3no elastic bands
*2no paper clips
*1no piece of wood about 150mm long (maybe an old broken ruler? I ended up using 2 plant markers)
Tools you will need:
*knife or scissors (I used a combination of both)

*long piece of hooked wire (coat hanger?)
*random tools for bending the body paper clip (you'll see!)
