Be a Hero to the Grandkids

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Be a Hero to the Grandkids

Postby Bill Hudson » Sat Nov 19, 2011 2:07 pm

If you are looking for something that is easy to build, cheap, and will make you a hero to the Grandkids --- try making a marshmallow shooter. Made a couple this morning and they were a hit. Take a look.

Very Cool! I bet Grandpa had as much fun as the kids. Did you make yourself one? :D
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Biggest hit of the holiday Bill, even Graycub said I should have waited and given to him for Christmas.
Mom was okay with it although after firing the same round a couple times they start sticking to the walls, cat and mom. :lol:
When he gets home from school tomorrow I'm sure it'll be the first thing he picks up.
Thanks ! :wink: :D
2 guns with ammo a little less than $10 with enough stick pipe left over for a couple more.

In my mind I see marshmallows under the couch, under tables, etc.

We built them together without him knowing what it was until I fired the first shot. His eyes bugged out he was so excited and he kept coming back all evening thanking me over and over....
Simple things sometimes bring a lot of Joy. :roll: :lol:

We made some a few years back and the kids and grandkids had a ball with them, or should I say marshmallow.

my grandpa made me a potato/walnut/tennis ball shooter when I was 12..... oh the joys of aqua net and lantern filament. Not to mention the looks on mom's face fussing at her own dad! :)
