Introduction: Angry Birds Water Balloon Game

Water balloon game for 2 or more people.

Step 1: Supplies:

Supplies:
2- Funnels with holes
2- bungee cords
2-stakes about 4’ long
Water balloons
Duct tape
Bench or table
Cups, wood blocks or aluminum cans (something to stack)

Step 2: Step 1

Duct tape the two funnels together.

Step 3: Step 2

Pound the two stakes into the ground. My bungees were only 20” long so the stakes are about 2’ apart.

Step 4: Step 3

Fasten a bungee cord to each stake.

Step 5: Step 4

Put the other end of the bungees through the holes on the funnels.

Step 6: Step 5

I duct taped everything so it wouldn’t come apart when flinging the water balloons.

Step 7: Step 6

Fill water balloons.

Step 8: Step 7

I used plastic cups stacked on bales of straw to put the “pigs” on. You can use aluminum cans, block of wood or whatever you have that can be stacked and easily knocked over.

Step 9: Step 8

Put a balloon in the funnel, pull back and fling balloons at the “pigs”.
Take turns flinging balloons. Score 1 point for each pig that you burst. First one to 10 wins.

That is cute!
Any chance of using something like youtube for the video, I don't want silverlight just to watch it

I edited the movie in Windows Movie Maker, Youtube can't convert. I will use another program when I get home from work and try to get it on Youtube. It's only about 10 seconds.

Thanks for viewing my instructable!

Good shot as well, how much practice did it take?

That was about the 15th try, I have really bad aim.

I have a suggestion.

Why not use Angry Birds plushies and aim it directly to the pig plushies.

author
JorIsa (author)HamenChips2011-05-21

I was using things I already had, I didn't have any plushies. Plus I think the water balloons are more fun.

Thanks for the suggestion:)
