Ok todays post is another make it post. While I've not made this yet myself it is for an outdoor science day I'm doing soon.
Make your own.... catapult! These look really cool and could be great if we ever get any hot weather to fire water bombs. You can just use garden canes, elastic bands and plastic cups.
I've got a couple of links to point you at, but I'm sure kids could come up with their own designs to. Anyway the sites are here and here.
Have fun!
Be sure to head over to Jo to see the other posts.


  1. That is quite the project! Not really a normal project for a Friday... but funny!

    Have a good one!


  2. Thanks for the summer idea! That should keep just about any age kids busy for a long time.
    I LOVE your new header, it is such a pretty picture!

  3. Very cool, what an interesting idea!

    Here from NaComLeavMo.

  4. I've been trying to come up with fun ideas for my son's birthday party this summer, and I think this would be perfect!

  5. hi
    great idea Not for 2 years old LOL but my 14 yr would love it.He was a cub and a scout -till he ditched it.

    I'm here from NaComLeavCom.
    For months I had no comments save a few from a friend and even she didn't bother commenting that much *sob*
    I started joining the weekday memes and visiting random sites - and started to get a few regulars. Linking to other blogs get you noticed too. They see you on Technorati and Google analytics.

    Hang in there.
    Fix it Friday sounds fun.

    My Little Drummer boys
    warm regards

  6. Oh I forget to say Thanks for visiting me

  7. Hmmm... I don't think the boy is quite capable of building that yet... heck... he just learned to crawl yesterday. I think it may be a while. Guess I could build it for me?

  9. Hmmm...interesting. I think my older son would have fun making and using one of those!
