Mini Marshmallow Shooters, Tutorial

I know this has nothing to do with hair, but get used to is, my second hobby parties 

 As a family, we watch NCIS, a lot, and my son just happens to love guns,  he builds them with his Lego's, and keeps a water gun in the back of his pants, so he can pull it out on people and say, " Hands up now! " which i find hilarious, especially since one of his god mothers' is a cop. I know someone out there may say, its bad, and he'll grow up to be a killer, but as long as i do my best to teach him right from wrong my hands or clean
But any who, i brought a marshmallow shooter kit for 7 bucks at a thrift store, which was way to much i think. and i thought it would be a cool idea to have a marshmallow fight with some of the neighborhood children, if i could figure out how to make them for cheap.

above is my first attempt and i think it came out well. so instead of having the marshmallows i fight, i wanted to use these at my son's 4th birthday party which is a safari theme. Who would want to go into a jungle without something to protect? Even if the ammo is sweet and made entirely out of sugar.

 To begin

you will need 1/2 inch PVC pipe, cut into desired lengths

at least one T shaped connector piece

 1 Coupler piece

and some end caps to cap off the handles, so the marshmallows will shoot through.

since it is a party, I decided to package each
 shooter in its own little bag, with  patterned paper topper

for the shooter in the first picture I used
  • 1 coupler for the mouthpiece
  • 2 T joints for connectors
  • 5 pieces of PVC, 3 for the body, and 2 for handles
  • and 2 end caps to keep the marshmallows flowing


  1. How does this work? I've never heard of it before but it sounds interesting. And where'd you get all the pieces?? Seems creative (:

  2. What in the... ? Does that really work?!! Looks like fun!

  3. Yes it really works... and they are fun, yesterday my mother and son was having a fight with them, if you search marshmallow shooters, you will find all sorts of videos and photos

    and at ATCC, i got them at a home improvemnt store than just cut to size
