Project #23- The Altoids Tin Catapult is a fun project for ages four and up. This little catapult will fold up and fit in your pocket for stealthy transport. It is designed to throw light objects like craft beads, hydrated floral craft water beads, or just good old fashioned spitballs. These kinds of objects can be thrown 15 feet or more. This catapult design has a built-in storage compartment for carrying the projectile of your choice.
Project #15- The Pocket Rocket is the smallest stomp rocket in the known universe, but don't let the small size fool you-this little rocket can reach heights of 35 to 40 feet. The launcher easily breaks down, allowing it and one rocket to fit inside an Altoids can. Although kids of all ages will enjoy this project, smaller kids may need help with set up and launching.
The Sonic Mini Air Cannon is a fun project for kids ages 5 and up. This little air cannon fires Air-Soft bb's and is powered by smacking a dog toy squeeze bulb with your fist. The angle of the barrel can be adjusted while you fire the cannon. This project also includes a target for sharpening your long-range artillery skills!
