Slingshot Fun

We are learning about David and Goliath this week. So we were going to make slings but Joffre was not happy with the idea of the kids possibly hurting themselves or our windows. So I convinced him to let them make slingshots. ( I also made a sling so they could see how it works.) I used leather scraps from our local craft store that sells a bag of them for $3. Then I bought elastic cording in the sewing section ( I bought too thin a cording. Buy the thickest you can. The ones you buy use a rubber cording but I'm not sure where to get it.)  Then we found the right sticks and made a few rules. =)
