This is going to be super fast so get ready! This is totally going to depend on how far your kids want to shoot things. We stacked up 6, then 8 sticks and rubber banded them together to make a solid piece.

See the picture below to make sure you have done it correctly. Again you can have less or more. This is all about trial and error.

The second step is to rubber band one end of 2 jumbo craft sticks together. (see below)

Push the open end onto the larger stack of craft sticks till its about 3/4 of the way. Push down on the top stick to see if the catapult will work well.

If you tested the catapult and it works, then add a dot of hot glue, a cut paper egg carton piece (you can paint it if you choose). Once its dry load up some pom poms (linked) and let your kids have a war. You can also shoot these cute Egg Carton Puppets back and forth. It makes it way more fun when they have pom poms (linked) in their mouths. So much fun!
