“A PVC marshmallow gun. It’s for Seminary…Please!”
I know, now that seminary is out for Christmas break, you have nothing to fill all that spare time, RIGHT? But here is a fun project for a scripture mastery game you can play next month. Actually PVC marshmallow guns are very cheap and fun to make (about $3 per gun –even less if you are making more than one). These are also great for family fun. Your kids and grandkids will love making new creative gun designs. There is no need to glue. Click on the picture to download some great building instructions from www.familycapers.com
For the scripture mastery game, there can be many variations. What I would do is divide the class in half. Send up a shooter from one team while the other team will have to chase. After you give the clue and say “Chase!” then one team will try to all find the reference, while the player from the other team is trying to shoot a target as many times as he can. Thus the one team wants to go as fast as they can to give the other team very little time to shoot. Then switch. The team with the most points wins. The other team gets to pick up all the marshmallows on the floor.
To keep things sanitary, buy extra couplers so each student can have their own. That way, when it is a student’s turn, they can place their own coupler on the end and they don’t have to put their lips where other students have. Later you can just drop all those couplers in the dishwasher.
Oh yeah. Buy a lot of marshmallow! :-)
