I’ve always wanted a marshmallow shooter. Who wouldn’t!?! But, $15 on Amazon–no way! So, after seeing this idea, I got a little crazy. I bought some 1/2-inch PVC pipe and connectors, then put my family to work.
I had my husband sawing, while the kids helped put the shooters together and colored. We finished five guns for about $7 total! Here are a few of our impressive creations.
The war commenced. Marshmallows were flying everywhere! My three-year-old, Mase, started to figure it out, but his shooter kept jamming. I suppose his spit method was not working so well.
Without a functioning gun, Mase quickly became an easy target and even got injured, taking a marshmallow near the eye.
Let me first say, I love to sympathize and give hugs when my children are hurt, but his “injury” was nothing. I don’t want to raise a bunch of wimpy children. “Oh, you’re OK. It’s only a marshmallow.”
After Mase was “injured” for a second time, I decided to stop aiming at the kids and went for my husband. I conquered, pelting him with at least twenty direct hits. But! I moved in too close! He started an all-out, close range, marshmallow assault! “Ouch! Hey! That hurt!”
I suddenly had more sympathy for injured son, “Sorry Mase.”
Evidently, I am the wimpy one, and a little mean too.
It was still a fun and memorable night.
And, no cleanup was required. Mase and Dax took care of that for us.
