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’s a link to a review on the slingshot)

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…
