More of Mike's Mechanics...

This time, it's homemade sling shots... with harvested branches, drilled holes, rubber bands, duct tape, and various screws.

Just one wouldn't do.

He made three different sizes.
He's been testing them all for accuracy and range.
The least conspicuous--the finger sling shot.
I don't think he likes when I call it the finger puppet sling!

This little DIY has been contagious.

The other three kids have also made sling shots. I figure it won't be long before another 10-15 kids on the block have made their own weapons.

It could get very dangerous around here.

This is very cool. Looks like I've found a fun project for my son. Today is the last day of school and he'll have a lot of time on his hands.
