Summer Fun Day 68 - Multi-Shot Marshmallow/Pom-Pom Poppers


Usually, marshmallow poppers are made with paper cups, and are single shot (click the link for instructions, and remember to keep balloon pieces away from small children).  It turns out you can replace the paper cup with a less expensive toilet paper tube, as in the un-decorated prototype below.



And, if you like, you can tape several balloon topped poppers together for a rapid fire, multi-shot action.



Or, tape three tubes together...


...and top them with one large balloon top stretched over the cardboard core of a tape roll (test it first to make sure the ring is large enough to fit around the tubes)...



...for a quick...


...single pull...


...multi-barrel burst.


It's great to be a homeschooler.
