Let the Fruitcakes Fly!
Cool Science is pleased to present our 10th annual Kid's Mini Fruitcake Toss on January 29th in Manitou Springs. Kids may drop-in anytime between 12:30 and 3 pm for a FREE workshop to build their own solid wood mini catapult. We'll provide all the parts and materials to customize it any way they like. Once finished we'll also have plenty of ammunition - marshmallows and tiny fruitcakes - for kids to fling.
Here's a quick video showing how to assemble our own special mini catapult design:
It's part of Manitou Spring's Great Fruitcake Toss, a celebration of everything fruitcake with plenty of family-friendly activities and contests next door in Memorial Park from 1 - 3 pm. It will be a full day of fruitcake flinging fun!
