Mini Popsicle Slingshot

Introduction: Mini Popsicle Slingshot

Welcome to my 2nd instructable on this great platform and today i'm going to show you how to make a super low cost slingshot.

Supplies

You'll need:

1 Rubber band (preferably one similar to the picture)

3 Popsicle sticks (you can buy them from a local craft store

5 Bulldog/binder Clips

Step 1: Main Body

Take 3 popsicle sticks and lay them out in a Y shape then use clips to hold them together as shown in the picture.

Step 2: Anti Collapser

Now for the piece i've dubbed the Anti Collapser. Take one clip and attach it like in the picture. This stop the V from collapsing when the rubber band is put on.

Step 3: Rubber Band Guides

These two clips stop the rubber band from sliding down the V, so put two clips at the top of the sticks that make the V.

Step 4: Rubber Bands

Now attach as many rubber bands as you want to the slingshot. As you can see I only used one band. Just put the bands over the body of the orange clips and then you're good to go!

Step 5: Fire Away

Now that it's done Fire Away! but don't use anything that you wouldn't want flying at your face :D

don't shoot at peoples faces, seriously. You should however vote for this Instructable, it makes me happy when the community likes my projects!
