Angry Birds DIY set up

If your kids love angry birds like mine do – this is sure to be a winner! Have the game come to LIFE with a few simple supplies.

Materials:
Small round-ish rocks (however many you want to paint for birds and pigs)
Paint (We used black, red, white, light blue, yellow and green)
brushes
marker
assorted blocks
slingshot ($1 store water toy launcher)
Cover your work surface to protect it. I divided up the rocks and colors and let my boys paint them up. 

When they were dry I added the face details with a tiny bit of paint and a black marker

Head OUTSIDE to build a structure to knock down! I placed a lap board on the grass it give the structure and flat solid surface to sit on. Then I let my kids build it up with blocks and place the pigs inside. 

Use a slingshot to launch your angry birds into the air! REPEAT, repeat, REPEAT!!! lots of fun and a great way to entertain them outside in the summer.

I will be linking up my idea around the web this week!

  19. Absolutely genius! And you inspired me to try the same thing with my nephew. I made the birds myself but he had a great time playing with them.

    Thanks so much!

  20. Had to return with another comment. After seeing this post on Saturday, we went for a walk around the neighborhood and collected rocks, painted our birds, pulled out some old baby building blocks (not square chunky style). we threw the birds and it was a hit, my six year old LOVED it. but we didn’t stop there. Another walk to find a nice branch. Saw and sanded my son’s first slingshot( of the homemade variety) We had hours of fun finding, creating and playing.
    This is the most fun craft we have done all summer.
    Thanks so much!!! I have to do a post on it for posterity’s sake, all credit goes to you!

  21. I absolutely love this idea! What a great way to get out from behind the computer and create something. Love it! I think I’ll have to make this for myself, hee hee. :-)

  22. This idea is pure genius!! I hope we can squeeze it in before school starts!
