Rubber Band Ping Pong Launcher

Introduction: Rubber Band Ping Pong Launcher

Today I am going to show you how to make a ping pong launcher out of rubber bands. Sounds hard? It's easy. It is also very fun to play with. I hope you can enjoy this rubber band ping pong launcher.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies!

All that we are going to need for this project is:

  • Empty packing tape roll (I used Scotch brand)
  • Four cotton swabs or lollipop sticks (I used toothpicks)
  • Five rubber bands (Thin rubber bands work best)

Do you have everything? Great, let's get started!

Step 2: Glue Four Cotton Swabs to the Side of Your Empty Tape Roll Creating a Square

Step 3: Stretch One Rubber Band Around All Four Posts. Then, Twist Each Corner of the Rubberband and Re-stretch It Around Each Post.

Step 4: Add Another Rubber Band Onto Your Cotton Swabs

Step 5: Stretch the First Rubber Band Up and Over the Second on Each Post.

Step 6: Repeat the Last Two Steps a Few More Times

Step 7: Have Fun!
