Am putting together a bunch of mini marshmallow guns (or shooters) for our company picnic later this week.
I have made these in the past and they are a hoot. A couple pieces of pvc some elbows and tees and a bag of marshmallows – then let the kids at it.
A marshmallow is dropped into the ‘chamber’ and then the shooter applies a blast of air to the pipe. The marshmallow can travel 40 or 50 feet depending on the skill and size of the shooter.
They have almost as much fun designing different ‘guns’ – from pistol designs to sniper rifles – as they do pelting each other with marshmallows.
If you need something to print out, here is a PDF file of instructions on how to build one.
