The other day I was reading on a friend's blog and she had a fun post about marshmallow shooters a friend has made for her boys. I thought to myself, "That looks like lots of fun!" I did a little bit of research with Google and found a pattern I liked. Then the boys and I went to our local hardware store to pick up all the parts we needed: PVC pipe, joints, glue and paint. Jacob picked out the red spray paint. He though it looked cool. I do have to agree.
After dinner, we rode our bikes to the fields behind our house to see how the shooters worked. We all had a great time. There where marshmallows flying all over the place.
Jacob had a great time "shooting" marshmallows. He would drop his shooter every once in a while to just run away from his dad, who couldn't help himself from shooting Jacob up close because it didn't hurt. They had such a fun time.
Andrew on the other hand had more fun eating all the marshmallows that where on the ground.
In this picture Andrew was playing the game Chubby Bunny. He won of course! He was the only one playing.
We did learn a couple of things that we will use to our advantage some day when playing against non-family members. So prepare yourself! Get ready friend this is fun. Friends if you are interested, I will make the "shooters" if you provide the marshmallows. --emily
