A slingshot or stone thrower is a small weapon that is normally made of a piece of wood in the shape of a "Y" with a band at both ends that is used to throw projectiles with a lot of power. In this article we show you to make an easy slingshot that is very powerful with a plastic bottle and a balloon. It's a great and fun craft to do with children. Take a look at the following OneHowto video to see how to make an easy slingshot at home.

You'll need:

  • Plastic bottle
  • Ballon
  • Tape
  • Scissors


  • Do not use this slingshot to shoot anyone, as the projectile can come out quite fast and powerfully.
  • It's a simple slingshot to make, so we can make it with small children so they learn to make new crafts.
