Step 1: 

Begin by taping your cylinder to the middle of your popsicle stick. Simply lay a piece of tape over the cylinder and in the same direction as the popsicle stick so the tape cannot be seen from the opposite side.

Step 2: 

Flip the popsicle stick over. On one end you are going to attach a plastic cap. Place a bit of tape or glue on one end of the stick and firmly hold the cap until dry.

Step 3: 

And that's it! There's the general idea for your catapult.
