How to Make a Marshmallow Gun or Marshmallow Shooter:
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. Click here for instructions.
Cut the PVC to length:
Cut 1 length of 7 inches and 5 lengths of 3 inches.
Layout your pieces and assemble them. Friction should hold them all together.
Put on your safety glasses.
Point the gun in a safe direction. Load a mini marshmallow into the mouth piece, seal your lips to the mouthpiece, and give the gun a quick burst of air.
Yes, the marshmallow does go around all those curves. Pretty cool, huh?!
Keep your ammunition sealed. Dry marshmallows don't work very well.
Clean up your marshmallows when you're done. Especially, don't leave any around roads: they will attract animals to be hit by cars.
