WW: Catapult Wars {linky}

We got the boys put it together yourself catapults, to keep them occupied at Grandma and Grandpa Apel's house.

Mica was inspired during a William Gurstelle's talk on The Art of the Catapult.


The boys have continued their catapult wars at home.


Isaak at war.

Mica at war.

This is so fun! I just showed it to my 13 year old, and she might do it too. Never too old to shoot things at a sibling!

That's awesome Alissa! My kids would totally be into that. I'll have to introduce them to catapult wars some time soon.

Cheers,

My boys made one with their dad. James just informed me that it is a "trebuchet" which is a French name for a medieval war machine that was used to fling projectiles. These look like cool little models. (Wondering where you got them?)

I hope they used marshmallow's and not rock!.Reminds me of that show where they catapult the pumpkins.
That would be a real mess.
