My five year old daughter has recently discovered the fun of catapulting things with her spoon. To bring the action a bit further away from the table, I decided to make some very simple catapults out of scrap wood. After dinner we spent the entire evening catapulting Star Wars Lego figures outdoors. It was super funny, and I was surprised at how high the figures were flying. We’re already thinking of more things to launch tomorrow.
Making it was very simple. I just took a strip of scrap wood, and attached a small piece of wood onto the bottom with wood glue. Or, of course, you could just use a spoon. Either way, a pretty fun activity!
