Marshmallow Shooters

Marshmallow Shooters

Ok, so it’s that time of year when the kids are out of school and its hot outside!  As parents we know that it’s good to encourage our kids to play outside and to get that much needed exercise.  As parents it’s hard to always come up with fun ideas for our kids to keep them playing.  Don’t worry, is here to help.  We love to find new activities that are fun for your kids and easy for you to put together.  Along with any of our fun wood tree swings we suggest that you try this game with your kids.  Here is a list of the things you will need.

  •          Paper or plastic cup(s)
  •          Balloon(s)
  •          Scissors
  •          Rubber Band(s)
  •          Marshmallows

Now that you have all of your supplies simply follow these instructions:

  1.        Cut out the very bottom of your paper or plastic cups (TIP: Don’t cut off from the side, cut off on the actual bottom of the cup. You need that thick sturdy                part of the cup.)
  2.        Cut most of the tail or bottom off of the balloon off. (TIP: You want to leave about a quarter of an inch of the tail of the balloon.)
  3.        Now pull the balloon over the top of the cut end of the paper cup. (TIP: You can help secure this with a rubber band if you like.)
  4.        Last step! Just load with a mini marshmallow, pull back on the balloon and let it go to launch.

Be sure to have fun and enjoy the time spend with your kid!  With this fun and easy activity your kids will stay busy for hours.  Here at we want you to love your wood tree swing, have fun with your kids and most of all spend time outside with your family!
