Marshmallow Popper 268 201 admin

Launching mini-marshmallows at a target or into a bowl with a custom made marshmallow popper is an instant classic.  With a little bit of creativity, the possibilities for fun are enormous.  My kids loved trying to launch a marshmallow perfectly into their waiting mouth!

Make it creative and customize your popper with stickers or other decorations.  Now get ready to launch!

What you need:

  • Mini marshmallows
  • Balloon
  • Paper cup/small yogurt container
  • Rubber band

What you do:

  1. Cut the bottom off of the paper cup.
  2. Tie a knot in the bottom of an empty balloon.
  3. Cut off about a ½ inch from the top of the ballon.
  4. Stretch the balloon around the bottom of the cup.
  5. Secure the balloon to the cup bottom with rubber band.

Put a mini-marshmallow into the cup.  Pull back gently on the knotted balloon.  Release quickly and watch the marshmallow fly!

More ideas:

Make a game of launching marshmallows into a bowl or at a target.

Add more than one marshmallow and see where they fly.

Go for a long distance record!
