Please don't catapult rocks in the house!



What happens when you leave a history activity book open to a page about ancient Roman weapons in a house full of boys?




A fully functional miniature catapult made of whatever they could find around the house -- in this case, K'nex pieces, part of a drum set, bark, a plastic spoon and duct tape. Unlike the example in the book, this one can be rolled down imaginary Roman roads on the way to the next battle.

I would be happy if mine made them on their own. I have to make them for them!

Love it. In a house full of boys you always have to wonder what's going to happen when you bring home a book like that. I know mine are going to listen extra hard to history whenever there is anything about weapons or war. And if we build something having to do with it...watch out! I think our boys would get along great!

Yeah, Boys! They did a great job!We have archery going on around my house with new homemade bows and arrows. My darling girls just found out that we are going to a Ren Fair in Cal City in October and they have been practicing. Lots of Greek mythology going on also. Thanks, Percy Jackson!

Don't you love the combination of imagination, creativity and duct tape?
