sling it everywhere!

Sling shot seed bombs and pom poms for kids

Have you noticed slingshots popping up everywhere we turn? Is it just me? They’re adorable, and very retro-cool. Yet, my first thought was: oh no, not a weapon for my kid! But, I’m actually coming around to the idea. It’s a big leap away from a toy gun. More importantly, you can shoot some pretty hilarious things with a sling shot – like pom poms, seed bombs, or paper footballs. I’d hold off on the water balloons and the rocks. And of course, the unbreakable rule: don’t point it at anything that lives, breathes and could love you back.


I know some little boys who might not listen to those rules, but perhaps that’s a good lesson in discipline (we’ll take it away if you break the rules!). Plus, I secretly want to learn how to handle a slingshot myself, what about you? I’m no good at darts, and archery seems too big a leap. Maybe we start with a slingshot and go from there!
