Marshmallow Gun

I wish everyone had a marshmallow gun
The bullets are soft and edible when done

If you get hit it's really quite fun
The marshmallow tickles and it's never a stun

When the marshmallow battle is over and done
There's always a party, 'cause both sides have won

We then eat our ammo and talk about the fun
We all had shooting our marshmallow gun!

(I even think you might get a nun
To join in a play with a marshmallow gun!)

This is another poem for Project Open Book. For Christmas my grandparents got all the great-grand kids a marshmallow gun. I'd highly recommend one for your own kids (both big and small!) Click here for instructions to make one for your own family! Have fun!


  1. Eek, how fun. I loved this poem!!!!! :~D

  2. I was intrigued by the directions until I realized you have to BLOW the marshmellows out. I think I would pass out....not sure where all my hot air went through the years. I know my son, Jon, would be able to make these, though. I'm going to pass this link on to him. Thanks!

  3. Ah, a kindred-poet... :) This is a wonderfully written humorous poem. GREAT work!

    Thank you for your recent comment on my poem. Silly me, I deleted the email before I clicked to add the comment.
