Fun Crafts for Kids


Marshmallow Shooter Kids Activity

As part of our Knight Unit we made these simple to make Marshmallow Shooters. They are super easy to make with things we had just laying around in our house already.  And did I mention they shoot over 30 feet – that’s some serious FUN!

Marshmallow Kids Activity

Cut out the bottom of a Dixie cup.  You need a medium size sturdy cup. You can use a plastic one if it has thick walls or use a large Dixie style cup.

Cut off the tip of a balloon. It can be any color you have laying around leftover from a birthday party.

Pull the balloon over the top of the cut end of the Dixie cup. You can help secure this with a rubber band if you like. For younger kids you may want to. Goofy (7) and I didn’t need it.
