Easy Catapults! Toddler STEM Activity

Early engineering!

Here are the catapults I made for my Pivots and Levers session!

The plastic milk scoop ones easily out performed the clothes peg design I found in various places on the web! Even my one year old’s fingers were strong enough to work it, much to her delight! Pom Poms made the best missiles!

Bit messy but lots of fun! Pop sticks and cut drinking straws! So simple to experiment with different pivot positions. Bottle tops dipped in paint get flung into the air. Haven’t seen this anywhere yet! Brill little Early Years/ toddler STEM Activity.
