{create} popsicle stick launchers

Not for launching popsicles.
Or any large juicy projectile.
But a dry kidney bean? Perfect.
Materials: jumbo craft sticks // rubber bands // bottle cap // hot glue gun

Assembly: stack up 6-8 sticks and secure them at both ends with rubber bands // put two sticks together and secure them at one end // slide the tall stack of sticks in between the other two as far as you can go // use two rubber bands to criss-cross securely to hold the large stack in between the two sticks // hot glue a bottle cap to the top end to hold your beans

Procedure: pull down on the top stick and then quickly let go to launch small objects
