* Homemade Gifts: Marshmallow Shooters


Our other homemade  birthday gift for our summer 
birthday friends were a couple of these
Marshmallow Shooters!
They were a huge hit with the birthday boy and his little brother.


We had to make a set for ourselves too : )
Directions for these  can be found all over the internet. 
We liked this set at Family Capers the best.

(we included a set in the  birthday boy's gift bag in case
his parents want to make more for themselves!)

Daddy took the girls  on a field trip to 
the hardware store for supplies:

1/2 inch PVC (drinking water quality)
Sprinkler Pipe
T-Joints
L-joints
End Caps
Connectors/Couplers
and 
a Pipe Cutter....

(I see more PVC projects in our future!)
We also added a fresh bag
of Mini Marshmallows
and some Safety Goggles (from the Dollar Store)


We decorated ours with
Colored Masking Tape. 
Because we really can't leave  anything alone. 

Happy Tasty Shooting!

fondly,
pink and green mama

Love these! We played marshmallow dodge ball at camp, but this is even better.

I have yet to doing anything fun with PVC pipes, but this is yet another fun idea I'd like to try. Gotta get myself to the hardware store!

I gave these to the boys (men)in my family one year for Christmas. They were a huge hit!!!

Forgive my ignorance, but how does this work? Does the marshmallow go in the end you blow or at the end where it comes out?

Not an ignorant question at all! I wondered the same thing when we built them. Yes, you put the marshmallows in the end and just blow!
