Marshmallow Launcher

Recently, I  posted pictures of an expo my children went to in Chandler. A few people asked me about a craft that the girls were making in one of the pictures & what exactly it was. The answer, a marshmallow launcher! It was sooo simple, but so fun. You know you need something to do with those pool noodles you bought this summer that will be out of commission for a few months.

All you need to make these bad boys is a balloon, scissors, duct tape, a pool noodle, & of course ammo (mini marshmallows). Before beginning let me take this time to say that even though this project is simple, adults should remain present because of the potential choking hazard of balloons.

1. Cut your pool noodles down to about 4-6 inches long.
2. Tie a not at the end of a balloon that has not yet been blown up & then cut off the other end.
3. Pull the now cut end of the balloon over one end of the noodle about 1 inch & use duct tape to secure it (you can always use the duct tape that has fun colors & designs).
4. Next, drop a mini marshmallow through the other end of the noodle (it should land inside the balloon).
5. Aim the noodle hole up towards the ceiling/sky, pull the balloon back, & then let go!
6. POP!

This project can also be done using a plastic or foam cup instead of a pool noodle.

Have fun!
