Marshmallow guns are becoming more and more popular, and for very good reason. They are safe (marshmallows can’t really do too much damage), they don’t hurt when you get hit, they can be used both indoors and out, and they are easy to clean up. Best of all, you can even eat your ammo when you are done!
Check out these fun challenges that can be tackled with marshmallow guns and marshmallow blasters:
MARSHMALLOW GUN TARGET CHALLENGE:
Download your FREE Marshmallow Blaster Target and take aim! You can challenge your friends to a round of target practice and see who has the most bull’s-eyes. For an extra challenge, vary the height and distance of your target.
SING FOR FREEDOM TAG:
In this game, you’ll need a few friends, a strong voice, and a lot of marshmallows! Divide into two groups. Each group marks their territory and places a flag or marker to mark the spot. Each player finds a hiding spot or ambush point. The object of the game is to capture the other team’s flag WITHOUT getting shot yourself. Sounds easy right? Well, the twist is that whenever a player gets hit with a marshmallow, that player is considered wounded and must sing, count, or recite out loud to get back in the game. In our house, we sing the first two verses of “Home On The Range”, but you can choose any song or poem your children are familiar with.
MARSHMALLOW GUN BASKET-MALLOW CHALLENGE:
This game resembles an old-fashioned basket toss game, but with a marshmallow twist. Set up a basket, bowl, or even a cup, and have your children see how many marshmallows they can shoot into the basket. This game is great for parties, and can be made more challenging by increasing the distance between the basket and the shooter, or by reducing the size of the basket.
The other nice thing about marshmallow guns is that most are inexpensive. Because they are so fun and popular, JM Cremps carries a variety of fun marshmallow gun options including the marshmallow ammo. The Camo Marshmallow Blaster is a favorite and will blast marshmallows up to 40 feet! The Camo Marshmallow Blaster Bow adds a If you want some real fun twist for young archers. If you want some serious firepower, then check out the Camo Mazooka Marshmallow Bazooka Gun. That one has illuminated sights, and is battery powered for high-velocity battle.
Here’s one last “Marshmallow Blaster” Tip: Put your marshmallows in the fridge for a few minutes before you set out to do battle. They will harden up a bit and will be less likely to clump together or stick to the inside of the gun.
