Easy Experiment: Make a pocket slingshot

Posted May 9

Beth Harris, Raleigh mom and science educator, returns today with a really fun and easy experiment for kids to make - a pocket slingshot!

All you need is a plastic bottle and a balloon. Watch the video to see how it's done ... and to see me getting pelted with marshmallows. And check out Beth's website where she shares science activities.

    What a great idea for kids to shoot stuff at each other's eyes !!! What's next ? Bows and arrows ? Play pirates with kitchen knives ?
