5 Minute M & M Catapult Game

Introduction: 5 Minute M & M Catapult Game

This is a little M & M catupult that anyone can make. I use it to throw M & M's into mine and my friends mouths but you could use it to throw at a target, into a cup, at your little brother/sister, etc...

Step 1: Supplies

1. Icebreakers tin (To Share, Not to Share)
2. 2 popcicle sticks
3. Glue gun
4. Hot Glue
Images are a little blurry sorry

Step 2: Take Off the Label

Take the label off and then take the top off

Step 3: Remove the Not to Share Piece

Cut the Not To Share piece off with a knife

Step 4: The Arm

Glue one of the popcicle sticks to the bottom of the not to share piece.

Step 5: Make Room for My Stick

Cut the to share piece so that there is room for the popcicle stick.

Step 6: Glue the Arm On

Glue the arm onto the to share side.

Step 7: The Last Steps

Glue a popcicle stick to the other side of the to share part.
Put some glue where the line is on the not to share part.

    you cut the little edge that holds the flap down, you could also file it down

    You can also reatach the lid to the base so you can hold M & M or Mints in it. Just put a piece of tape or something over the not to share hole and remove it when you need to get at the contents. This was a very creative way to use an object that has so many capabilities!

    If you have it lying around epoxy or latex put in it and the bottome left on will make it sturdy and have more weight. Also you can launch the mints that come inside. Mine worked fairly well with the mints.
