This is pretty brilliant. The middle school director at Shine Middle School Group put together a life size Angry Birds game for his kids. He is using boxes, decorative oriental lamp shades for the pigs, and an assortment of exercise balls for the birds. I really like the effort he put into it. The screen shots are great but the video embedded below is awesome. h/t JeremyLee.

    this is amazing. the only part that looks tough is the slingshot. anyone know how I can get something strong enough to launch balls that size?

    @ T.J. – the posts used in the video are heavy stands made for a volleyball net. Not sure what else would work, that is deffinitly the hardest part. If you where doing it outside you could put posts in the ground I suppose or maybe one of the cheap metal swingset stands.

    I wonder if the tubing for the sling shot cord can be bought wholesale in a spool or if you can use the tension equipment sprinters use to build speed and strength.

    Hey Chad,

    We actually used fitness resistance bands from walmart for the slingshot. Not exactly this product but similar…

    We’ve had a lot of questions about the materials we used and how we did this, we’ll have a full description in the resources section of our website tomorrow (

    We did this with water balloon launchers. We didn’t set up big poles, but did guys vs girls from opposite sides to see who could knock the boxes and prizes down first.

    We did a slightly smaller scale for our kids using shoe boxes, tennis balls and water balloons!
