After reading Mr. Putter and Tabby Pick the Pears, we felt compelled to make a slingshot. Sadie would also like to plant a pear tree but one thing at a time. We made it according to Mr. Putter’s description of his own- stick shaped like a Y with the band of men’s underwear for the sling. He used a piece of leather for the setting but we went without. Maybe we need more elastic underwear… We were trying to sling whiffle balls but it’s not the most effective slingshot.
