That's my son, Keaton, who recently had an AMAZING time at a birthday party when my friend pulled out marshmallow guns for all the boys. (And yes, I know, there are some people who will read this and be horrified that guns and fighting were included in a children's party. oh well.)
Talk about a super fun and really inexpensive activity! My friend said the pvc parts cost about $1/gun.
Buy bags of marshmallows and safety goggles at the Dollar Tree and you're set!
These guns shoot the mini marshmallows and are easy to put together. You can have the guns already put together for the children or you can make an activity out of the construction.
The Idea Room has fabulous photos that show how to construct your own guns. As you can see, my son's gun was a bit longer than her diagram, but that's the beauty... create any type of gun you'd like!
At the party we attended, my friend went all out for the boys. They each were given bandanas which would represent which team they were on. She built blinds out of huge boxes (a la paintball wars) and each boy was given a pouch to wear to carry extra "ammo".
The boys all got to take everything home!
My 3.5 year old son was thrilled to be playing with the big boys! See? We'll be putting this idea away for one of Keaton's future parties.
