Webelos Engineer Activity Badge: Make a Catapult

marshmallow catapultRequirement 9 of the Webelos Engineer Activity Badge says, “Build a catapult and show how it works.”  I found a simple catapult that you can make using craft sticks, rubber bands and a plastic spoon, which can all be purchased through my affiliate links.

The directions are very easy to follow, and the catapults can be made in about 20 minutes.  During an hour-long meeting, this gives the boys ample time to talk about how the catapult works and to have marshmallow battles!

Thanks to Devin Collier for the great instructions!

Yours in Scouting,
