For the large launcher we cut one piece of pvc pipe about 12" long. Four smaller pieces are also needed and can be cut either 5" for a bigger handle or 4" for a smaller one. It doesn't matter which size you choose but all four need to be the same size. To keep kids from inhaling the marshmallows we cut two pieces of thin string and crisscrossed them on the end of the 12" pvc piece, secured with tape, then inserted into the standard T pvc piece (see photo above). Once the pieces were pushed together we covered the exposed string with duct tape. The rest of the launcher was assembled as pictured to the left.
The small launcher is built much the same way. We cut the launching piece at about 6" and the handle at about 4". A cover on the bottom of the handle keeps air from escaping. Don't forget the string in the middle as pictured above. Make sure all pieces are push together as far as they will go. Decorate as you like!
