Pocket Sized Catapult

Introduction: Pocket Sized Catapult

Have you ever wondered what you could do with a couple of popsicle sticks and a spoon? Here's a quick and easy project that's lots of fun!!

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

  • A foam ball
  • 4 Rubberbands
  • A plastic spoon
  • 6 Popsicle sticks

Step 2: Starting

To start you will need to take 5 popsicle sticks and put them together. Take one of your rubber bands and tie it around the edge very tightly (you don't want your popsicle sticks to fall apart). Do the same with the other end of the popsicle sticks.

Step 3: Connecting the Last Part

Take your 6th popsicle stick and put your spoon on top. Take one of your rubber bands and tie the spoon to the stick near the edge. Wedge the piece you made last step in between the spoon and the stick (you will want to put the side of the sticks face up), wedging it further makes more of a spring. Take your last rubber band and tie the bundle to the spoon and popsicle stick to avoid it from falling apart. Put the foam ball on the spoon and fire. Please tell me what the results were. Thanks for reading this instructable.

    I tried it, and the results were that it just went 3 feet into the air.
