Art of Play Handmade Slingshot

We all have an inner child. Let him out and play once in a while, with a slingshot. Highly recommended by Bart Simpson and Dennis the Menace.

Back in the days, a Y-shaped branch from a tree was used to find water – at least that was the idea. Thankfully, someone stopped the madness and went a little creative. Voilá, now you can fire projectiles!

You might not know it as a slingshot, though. If you’re from Australia or New Zealand, it’s called a ging or a shanghai. In the UK, it’s a catapult, and in South Africa, they call it a kettie.

The world record for the most energetic shot with a handheld slingshot was 135 Joules. This one won’t get you anywhere near that, but then again, we’re just having a bit of fun; we’re not trying to kill anyone.

That’s why the slingshot doesn’t come with lead bullets. No no, five felted wool projectiles is in the bag, so even when you hit your mark, you won’t leave a bruise.

And if this isn’t enough for you, maybe you want to be a slingshot projectile yourself?
