How to? --> Slinging re-creation for kids play
Mar 8th, 2023 at 2:01pm
 
Hi, I have never swung before, but I have a question for this group!

I was wanting to re-create the david vs goliath scene for a kids play and thought i could teach my 12 yr old how to swing in order to really captivate the crown. Would any of you think it possible (and safe) to re-create this using a ping pong ball or some other safe soft object at 20-25 ft?  any advice is welcome!

Dryer wool balls are the best “safe ammo”

You can roll a sock up into a ball.  If you have a gray sock, it will also look like a big stone.  Smiley

There’s a lot of these around.  Dryer balls like this are slightly bigger than a tennis ball.  You can roll the dryer ball  back and forth to elongate it so it’s more egg shaped rather than spherical too.

As far as learning to sling… set up a target that’s roughly the size and distance you want in the reenactment, and then there needs to be LOTSof practice. You should learn alongside your 12yo so you can help them figure it out, and of course we can help you out in the forums too!
