Soda Bottle Goggles

Protect your eyes from flying marshmallows during playtime.

Soda Bottle Goggles

Adapted from the original project by Howtoons on Instructables.

Mini marshmallows shot at high speeds can smack hard and even stick. These goggles will keep the fast-flying ’mallows from hitting your eyes and face.

NOTE: These goggles are intended for use with the Marshmallow Shooter to protect you from flying marshmallows. They are by no means intended to replace actual safety goggles in the workshop.

  • Wrap the sheet around your or someone else’s face, and use a marker to outline and design your mask.
  • Cut 2 slits in each corner of the mask, and weave each end of the elastic band through the slits, going out of the inner slit to the front side, then back in through the outer slit. Adjust your mask, and it’s ready to wear.
