Introduction: DIY Kids Catapult

About: I'm an Electrical Engineer and I have build some robots and microcontroller based systems. I also like building things that fly like planes, rockets and more. I started with 14 years old controlling an arm wit…

This is an easy DIY catapult for kids, made out of wood sticks, cardboard and hot glue. In some minutes you can have some and have a little aim contest or war ;-)

Please note: depending of some parts (rubber band) this toy can cause harm. Handle it with care and always with adult supervision.

Step 1: Cut a Squared Cardboard Piece and Some Sticks for a Solid Platform...

Step 2: Add the Vertical and Horizontal Top Sticks to Stop the Launcher

Step 3: Finish With the Launcher Stick and the Projectile Holder. You Have a New Fully Functional Catapult. Enjoy!

Add a long stick in each side from front to back to add stability when loading and shooting.
