From now on, I shall not throw away card board boxes, all the fun things you can make for your kids. The ideas are endless.

One of the fun demonstrations during my "Under Pressure" class. Who knew a bendy straw and a cheese puff could teach Bernoulli's principle?

Did you know that straws can make music… or rather, that if you cut drinking straws into different lengths, they will make different sounds when you blow into them? Just try it! And when you put them together, there might even be music :)

Angry Birds Catapult! Make a large one for outdoors using sticks and bungee cords. Try to hit at bulls eye!

finally a craft for the boy...but I'd have him shoot acorns or something other than buttons.

Indoor Activity: Make Cardboard Stackers — Meaningful Mama

cardboard stackers

Helped my student make this catapult for a high school physics project. Used 2" scrap lumber, screws, 2 cup hooks, and a short bungee cord. Made a projectile seat out of card stock and hot glued it on. Also copied a protractor and taped it to the side for calibration. Throws a small bean bag about 10 meters (32.8 ft) at full force.
