Mac vs me
two out of three and the first born showed dad who the boss was.
never made it to the third game.
|my set up|
|mac's set up|
had to buy another bag of rubber bands.
made the catapults from scrap wood from an oak pallet.
the catapults are roughly: base 11.5"x5" and the arm length is 10".
i got this design from an online site with free plans. i think it was "crush the castle". i stayed pretty true to their plans. just added a platform to give it a bit more stability.
|one of our catapults.|
we set up about 10 feet from each other.
with the bands moved to a lower rung and even more bands added we can easily double the distance.
boy number two is next on the challenge.
