Supplies needed:

  • 8 craft sticks
  • 3 rubber bands
  • a bottle cap of some kind (I used a milk bottle cap)
  • Hot Glue Gun (adult supervision needed with this)
  • cotton swabs (or other objects to launch)

Let’s Get Started…

STEP One: Stack 6 craft sticks together, and rubber band one end.

STEP Two: Separate the stack of 6 craft sticks (between the first stick and the remaining 5) and place the a craft stick between the 2 craft stick stacks.

STEP Three: Rubber band the other end of the stack of 6 craft sticks.

STEP Four: Rubber band the last craft stick to the one you placed between the stack of craft sticks.

STEP Five: Glue a milk cap {or something similar} on to serve as a launching platform.

This part may require some adult supervision depending on the age of the child.

STEP Six: Push down on the top craft stick and release to launch an object from the milk cap.
