HowToons and the Marshmellow Hero

Craft & Design

Images-12A Maker in our comments writes “I made PVC marshmellow guns for my two boys this weekend. At first, they had no idea what I was doing. After my 8 year-old saw the first mini-marshmellow fly out of the tube and smack the wall, he was hooked and so was his 5 year-old brother. Thanks for helping me be a hero for $5.71 (cost for 2 guns). My oldest slept with his gun last night and was amazed that when he woke up it smelled like marshmellows. “Yup,” I said, “I love the smell of marshmellows in the morning.” The male bonding has begun. Thanks for the Make”. Link.

    Excellent, marshmallows in the morning are what every kid ought to experience;-)

    It’s a minimalist maximum experience.

    Variations on the theme — multiple pipes, auto-loaders, air-compressors, etc — all highly encouraged.
