An excellent craft present for kids, this Wooden Catapult Craft Kit from Fiesta Crafts has 40 wooden parts that are assembled to make a catapult that fires paper balls!
It can be painted using poster paints (not included) and comes with fun paper targets to cut out and an instruction sheet.
It also serves as a great educational toy, teaching children how to follow instructions, how to piece together lots of components and how to work independently (although we are sure there will be at least one adult in the house who won't be able to resist "helping"!).
Recommended for children aged 6-11. Requires PVA glue (not included but widely available).
