Every home needs a marshmallow gun. Well, that’s what the toy catalogs want us to think anyway. It seems every catalog we received this year had some version of a marshmallow shooter.
Toy catalogs are a hot property in our house of 5 boys. My youngest, who is 5, has caught on to circling with a marker all of the things he wants for Christmas. And don’t you know every marshmallow shooter was circled. Because really, what is more fun than shooting your brothers, and then eating the ammo? It is win, win.
There’s a problem – marshmallow guns get a little pricey. The lower priced ones don’t look as though they’d hold up in our home, and the expensive ones are too expensive.
Build Your Own Marshmallow Gun
Imagine how happy I was to come across directions for making your own marshmallow gun on Instructables.com! “This marshmallow gun (marshmallow shooter) will completely surprise you with its accuracy, range, and ease of construction. Plus, it’s tons of fun and a lot better than any store-bought toy because it encourages modifications.”
This sounds like a great project to do with the kids during their Christmas vacation. And maybe, just maybe, they won’t want to play video games. Ha! Good one.
