Life Sized Angry Birds Slingshot
Here’s an idea inspired by the crazy-popular Angry Birds… I thought we came up with something pretty clever, but come to find out…lots of people have done it!
I simply used 4 inch PVC sewer pipe a couple of caps, a couple of elbows and a “T” then spray-painted it brown.
The biggest issue to me was keeping it stable from a lot of use and keeping it from twisting and turning when a lot of pressure was applied. I decided that using 2 “T” fence posts was the easiest and most cost effective solution. I used bungee chords to tie it to the slingshot. The best launching device in our case (water balloons) was a 3 person water balloon launcher. It turned out to be perfect for 5-10 year olds (and adults) to use!
Here is a better view of the slingshot. I attached it with 2 large hose clamps on each side for safety.
And here are some pigs about to get clobbered….
The slingshot is now traveling from party to party…
Happy Pig Hunting!
