PVC Marshmallow Shooters - Linkin logs for adults

I seem to be on a PVC kick. Maybe because it seems like adult linkin-logs I don't know, but today I decided to build PVC marshmallow shooters with/for my kids.  (Yes really for my kids)

Building the guns are really easy and require very few tools. The only real tool needed is a way to cut the PVC pipe. A PVC pipe cutter makes life easier, but you could use anything that can cut through PVC.

For the guns that I built I made the following cuts:

Pieces needed:
  • 24 inches of 3/4 inch PVC pipe
  • 2 3/4 pvc endcaps
  • 2 3/4 pvc tee
  • 2 3/4 pvc 90 elbow
 Cuts needed:
  • 5 2" x 3/4 pvc pieces
  • 1 7" x 3/4 pvc piece

Once you have made your cuts put the gun together as the following pictured shows:

There really isn't a wrong way when building your marshmallow shooter.  As long as you can put a marshmallow in one end and blow it out the other, any thing you do will work out just fine. This is why I call them linkin logs for adults. 

Once my shooter was all assembled and my kids were done with theirs we had a marshmallow war. Each gun only cost a little over $2 dollars and my kids loved the shooters, and you will too.
