Automatic Snow Launcher Prank

Introduction: Automatic Snow Launcher Prank

About: I like to make stuff

First off, I haven't exactly tried it out but in theory it would work. Since this year we are getting snow, I decided to make a snow prank that automatically launches snow when your victim trips the wire.

Cut snowball maker like in the picture and stick it in the snow.

Stick stake in snow on opposite side of snowball maker. Tie string onto stake and the other end of the snowball maker like in picture. Put snowball in holder, then let that part hang down.

Place it in a place like a sledding hill but make sure it is angled a little down the hill because they are going fast.

    This wouldn't work, they would have to step on the string, not just trip it, because if they tripped it, the launcher would just pivot sideways.

    it might work if the string was lower and a sled went over it.....the sled would need a rounded front
