Now you are ready to launch! We chose cranberries as our ammunition since I had a few extra as I was preparing for Thanksgiving dinner. We were careful about where we were launching given the potential for stains or crushed berries. We also thought about heading outside for acorns. Or simply grabbing some pom poms.
This catapult was endless entertainment as we tried to launch cranberries into a large bowl. At first, there was some sharing amongst the kids. Then, we quickly made more catapults: one for each kid.
