Make The Teeny-Tiny Catapult 4

In this part of the tutorial we finish making the popsicle stick catapult.

 

Tape the arm into place

 

Now place the catapult arm into the base as shown with the tab of tape pointing up and wrap at least five wraps of tape around it so it is firmly taped to the upright piece.

 

 

 

 

 

tape the arm into place

This picture shows me taping the catapult arm into place. Do at least 5 wraps and make it nice and tight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Test the catapult arm

Test the movement of the catapult arm by moving it up and down. It should move freely. This is why we leave the little space between the black lines. It acts as a hinge.

 

 

 

 

 

Tape the rubber band to the catapult arm

Now tape the rubber band to the catapult arm. Tape it so in the relaxed state it is at about a 45 degree angle. This will give it some spring. Leave it long so you can adjust it if you need to.

 

 

 

 

 

 

mark the paper like this

Mark up your two inch square of paper like this. The lines are about a half inch from the edges. Where you see the green lines in my picture cut with a pair of scissors.

 

 

 

 

 

Fold the paper into a square cup shape and tape it all together. Use plenty of tape.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catapult is complete

Now tape the cup to the catapult arm and you are done!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leave room for your finger

Just make sure you leave enough on the end for you to press it down with your finger. Have fun with your new teeny tiny catapult and create some games with it.
