Snowball Catapult

You need:

  • Lollipop sticks
  • Elastic bands
  • Plastic spoon/fork
  • Marshmallows (aka snowballs)



  1. Take 3 lollipop sticks, bundle them, and wrap rubber bands around each end to hold them together.
  2. Take 2 more lollipop sticks and put them together with a rubber band around one end.
  3. Then put the first bundle between those two sticks.
  4. Take one another rubber band and wrap it around the point where the sticks all meet to hold them in place.
  5. Then place the spoon along the top stick and rubber band or glue that into place.
  6. Try making the catapults with different amounts of lollipop sticks for step 1 and/or 2 and test to see which one can launch the ‘snowball’ the furthest.

Use your maths skills to measure how far you can fire a snowball!
