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!
How to Make a Marshmallow Shooter
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.
Marshmallow Shooter – Summer Kids Activity
Now you get to play! Just load with a mini marshmallow, pull back on the balloon and let it go to launch.
We had competitions to see who could shoot the farthest. We had marshmallow go over 30 feet!
This is a great kids activity for summer fun or as a go along to The Marshmallow Knights, one of our favorite books!
The Marshmallow Incident (a fantastic kids book!)
