This weekend we got a bit of a break in the cold weather since it warmed up into the 40's. I know not very warm but it was sunny and we could not resist going outside. Being stuck in the house for months at a time during winter really wears on you so any chance we get to go out in the sun we take.
I thought this was the perfect opportunity to make these fun marshmallow shooters I have been seeing all over Pintrest lately. I mean really if you can be out side why not have a marshmallow fight right! So while the girls were digging up my garden (everything is dead now anyway) I ran inside and made these really quick.
Then I headed outside and showed them what mommy just made. Of course the the only way to show them was to shoot them with marshmallows, so that is what I did. Then I gave them each one along with some marshmallows so they could get me back by shooting me. Well my little one never did understand that we were SHOOTING marshmallows, she just thought I was handing her a snack cup with some yummy treats in it. Oh well my oldest and I had a blast with her chasing me around shooting me with marshmallows.
Plastic cup (any plastic cup will do)
Cut the bottoms off your cups.
Tie a knot in the end of your balloon then cut the top off.
Put the balloon over the top of your cup. The knotted end is what you pull to shoot.
Pull back, aim, and shoot your mommy!
Or sit back and enjoy a yummy treat!
