I know this was a long time ago, but I’m thinking about doing it for an end of year Girl Scout Party. But since we’ll be doing it in a public field, we’ll need to clean up afterwards. So I was wondering, how much of a pain was it to clean up all the marshmallows? Or if you missed some, did they turn into a sticky mess?
Hi JoAnne! It really depends on how hot it will be outside as to whether or not the marshmallows will melt and get sticky. We didn’t run into any issues with ours – they are easy to see and pick up on concrete surfaces, and even though they’re harder to locate on grass, we didn’t have any sticky issues with any that were missed! 🙂
I bought some off Etsy and my kids have hours of laughing and giggling fun!! I am now buying one for my hubby this year for a stocking stuffer for Christmas. He has just as much fun as the kids do with it (if not more fun) 🙂 lol
And you can buy a big bag of mini marshmallows (amo) for only a couple of bucks. Keeps em entertained for hours!
This is where I found them, https://www.etsy.com/listing/204577606/camo-marshmallow-shooter-gun-launches
can’t wait for my husband to make these for our grandkids for Christmas, the kids will have a blast!
Thanks for this fantastic post, I’m glad I found this site on google.

Hi, my grandson and I make these to sell at craft show. We use duck tape to decorate them. There is a book I got from Lowe’s that make different kinds it is called: MAKE YOUR OWN…AWESOME…MARSHMALLOW LAUNCHER.Everything You Need to Build Your Own Blaster! by Joe Rhatigan
You can make the mini, the deluxe, deluxe quick fire, the air mail, behind your back special, the pip squeak, the master, the commando, the long ranger, the huh, the lil firestorm, the trombone, the x-factor, the infiltrator, all riled up, The books says “Help! no matter what I do, my marshmallows gets stuck in my launcher. It says to “roll each marshmallow in flour first.” “The flour keeps the stick spots on the marshmallow from sticking inside the launcher.” “Tap the floured marshmallow before putting inside the launcher.” The book says this not me. The book says to use a hacksaw and miter box or a pipe cutter. They used a hacksaw because the pipe cutter sometimes warps the pipe openings. Sand the cuts. I always use couplers on mine for a couple of reasons: one is because if the child has been eating food you can take the coupler off and wash it out. second is because if there is any sharp edges from cutting it might cut the child’s lip and also he is not putting his mouth on paint. I ALWAYS USE COUPLERS FOR THE CHILD TO BLOW INTO. Yours looks like there are 4-3 inch pipes, 1-6 inch pipe, 2-elbows, 1-T-joint, and 1 cap. Don’t forget 1 coupler for the mouth piece.
thank you for the measurements Diane Julian
Hi I want to make these for a birthday party and was wondering if you knew the measurements you used. thank you. cant wait to make these
Does the spray paint scratch off the pvc?
Our paint did eventually end up with some minor scratches in it, but nothing large (and my boys were really rough on their marshmallow shooters!).
