My two youngest kids and I built a table-top version of Angry Birds! It's loads of fun and doesn't cost much to make! The materials needed are hard Styrofoam, balsa wood, pingpong balls, paint, Sharpies, rubber bands and a bit of cardboard. Here's a quick how-to on making it:


For the project we purchased a large sheet of about 1" thickness hard Styrofoam and balsa wood boards from a craft store. The first step was to decide on the length of our blocks and how many we wanted to make.


Next the blocks were cut out. I used a hand-held jig saw, but a coping or other hand saw would work just as well (the jig saw just makes the process much faster). After the blocks were cut we set about painting them. We tried to simulate the wood, stone and glass blocks from the game.


And here they are! The blocks finished and *almost* dry! While these were drying, my middle boy took on the task of creating the pigs and birds.


Our pigs and birds were made from pingpong balls. In the first picture of this post, you can see all of the birds/pigs we have so far. In the closeup above, you can see where we hot-glued some black beads to the bottom of the pigs to create their hooves and give them the ability to stay put until they're shot at.

With all of the components made, it could then be enjoyed!!!

My husband and I laughed so hard at the video. I'm sure your children really love playing with this.

That's fantastic!  My fiancee would love this.  He plays that game all the time on his phone.  Would you mind if I borrowed the idea for his birthday?

Certainly Smiley I made the tutorial so that everyone could get a sweet app for their i-Table (formerly known as the kitchen table)

Sometimes I wonder why I show my husband things that are cool on Craftster. Now he wants me to make one Smiley It's very cool. How did you put the sling shot together? Loved the video too!
