This Catapult for Kids craft is both easy and inexpensive to make. Plus it will keep the kids busy for hours which is a bonus in any parent's book. It's a STEM project too, so you'll love that it helps teach them science while having fun!

This is really smart - and can be re-purposed for a girl who grows out of dolls. NOTE---there are some nice wood TV cabinets that end up in some resale shops (when owners switch to flat screen tvs.and maybe downsize).
