So, those of you that read through my Weekly Wrap Up post, were you able to figure out what we were doing in the following picture?
I know at least Donna did - thanks for your comment, Donna! Blogs just aren't as much fun without them! :)

And yes, these fun little toys made from cut-up plastic cups and balloons are marshmallow (or pompom) shooters! 

Cut the bottom off a pair of nested plastic cups:
 Tie a knot in a balloon and cut off a small strip from the round end of the balloon:
 Stretch the cut balloon over the drinking end of the cup:
 Load the cup with a mini-marshmallow, pull back (letting the mallow drop down into the indention near the knot), aim, and.... release!

Guaranteed fun for all generations.  Trust us. :)

Ammo-eating is optional.

Thanks, Kristin, for another fun project during your wonderful visit!  A fun time was had by all!

I will admit that I enjoyed my turns with the shooters! I see the makings of a new Olympic event.

Thank you Pinterest! I am so glad they were a hit!
