    Marshmallow Catapult I (Becky) did a dry-run sample on this fun craft before teaching the kiddies. Tips: Careful handling of the tissue box so it holds its shape; secure the rubber band to the tip of the pencil with another rubber band so it doesn't slip off when "firing."

    Upcycled tissue box - marshmallow catapult! Okay, better suited for a playroom. But, my son has had this toy in his room for two yrs. he loves the thing. I cant believe it still does anything. But this is really a great idea for kids.
