A cut down fishing pole would work pretty handily I think.  You can make them very quickly and Its a fun toy to have around.
there are a few other projects I want to try out of the American Boy's Handbook.  If you have never seen it I recommend it is a great book.  That or "A Dangerous Book for Boys" two of my all time favorites.

AMEN! I think those two books should be required reading for every kid. I plan on putting them in my boys' library this year. They can't read yet, but the pictures will get their attention.

you might be able to find a used copy somewhere I found one on amazon or half.com i cant remember off the top of my head.  good luck in finding one.  They are precious books in my library I read through them at least once a month.

I'm hopefully going to make one tomorrow if the weathers OK, and I would defiantly suggest the American boys handy book, I built a few things out of it and made a boat from plywood similar to the scow in there, but I still have to get the dangerous book for boys.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.
