So how many of you procrastinate? I sure do! I always work better under pressure, but not always sure that's a good thing. And I hope I haven't passed that on to my kids. But my oldest might be in trouble!
He had to do his first science fair project this past week and didn't start it nearly in enough time in my mind. (Since I was up until 1:30 am with him helping him finish it the night before it was due.) After it, I could tell that he was proud of it and he said, "If I knew it was going to be that much work, I would have started it sooner!" (It didn't matter that I had mentioned for him to do just that a few times in the past couple of weeks...grrrr)
If you are looking for how to make a tabletop catapult, we found several designs here:
Ours is basically like one of the very first ones posted with the list of items and even lengths listed and rubber bands.
It was fun trying it out with him though. I'm sure glad I have a handy husband that can go make something like this ping pong catapult with him though!
