During the ancient times catapults are used as a weapon of war. However, today catapults can be used to toss marshmallows into your mouth or your friend’s mouth. Here is a simple instruction on how you can make your very own marshmallow catapults.

What you need are the following:

  • Tissue box

  • Hole punch

  • Scissors

  • Pushpin

  • Ballpoint pen

  • 2 unsharpened pencils

  • 2 rubber bands

  • Plastic cap

  • Tape

  • Glue dots

  • Pipe cleaner

Cut some section of the tissue box to widen its opening. Refer to the picture as to how big you should cut off of the box. Measure 2 inches from one end of the box and ½ inch down then make an opening using the hole punch. To enlarge the hole use the ballpoint pen then do the same on the other hole.

At the far end of the box make a hole using a push pin at the center part. Again, enlarge the hole with a ballpoint pen. Cut the rubber band so you have a strip. Insert the pencil on the holes you have made then the other pencil place it in the middle of the first pencil. Secure the two pencils with the strip of rubber band. Bend the pipe cleaner around the rubber band hoop then through the holes adjacent the base. Spread the pipe cleaner then tape on the box. Attach the plastic cap on the pencil with glue then test your catapult.
