Summer Fun With Marshmallows

Summer is almost here and the kids will be out of school. Correction the kids are already out of school but their online school will be ending soon. So that means they will be even more bored since the start of this Covid-19and beyond virus outbreak. So like most parents, I am trying to keep them entertained. Wow, I never thought that I would be looking for ways to keep my boys entertained in the summer. This summer is going to be a long one as my boys will not be able to play with friends or head to the park for the school's free lunch program. The lunch at the park was something that the boys looked forward to every summer as it was a time to eat and play with their friends. It will feel strange not being able to visit the zoo or museums but we will make the best of it in our little safe bubble.

Creating fun in the backyard



 We are in the process of putting a hot tub in the backyard and even that is frustrating as we still have no delivery date for the hot tub that we ordered a month ago. The gazebo and floor pieces have been delivered and assembled. So I will start ordering lights and plants. I am thankful for online shopping. While we are waiting for the hot tub we will finish clearing the weeds naturally with non-toxic methods. I have had great success with an all-natural homemade weed spray that works quickly. That way the yard will look amazing when the hot tub arrives and it will be our staycation place. The yard will be the place where all the fun happens this summer. It will be a place to enjoy marshmallows.

Summer fun with marshmallows



 The boys will be having a blast with marshmallows beyond eating those sweet soft puffs of goodness. This will be the summer that I will let them play with their food. I will let the boys shoot marshmallows at each other. Instead of shooting foam darts from transformative dart blasters, the boys will be loading up their Marshmallow Classic Double Barrel Blaster and having a blast shooting mini marshmallows at each other and at targets. This is going to be some great outdoor fun. I better order some more marshmallows.





The Marshmallow Blaster Double Barrel Blaster from Zing holds double the marshmallows and can launch those sweet white treats up to 40 feet! This cool shooter has two magazines that hold up to 25 mini marshmallows and the shooter can go into the dishwasher. Moms don't have to worry about anyone getting hurt as marshmallows are soft upon impact after they are released from the Blaster. For added fun dip marshmallows into cornstarch and watch a cool puff of white dust form as you launch them from the barrels. So let the kids play with their food and pass the marshmallows.


Create sweet treats with chocolate-on-chocolate marshmallows


 After the boys finish tossing marshmallows all over the yard, they can then relax in the yard with a sweet treat made from chocolate-on-chocolate marshmallows and some homemade vegan peanut butter cookies. Stuffed Puffs® is taking marshmallows to a whole new level just in time for summer. Their latest addition to Stuffed Puffs® will make chocolate lovers rejoice with its decadently cocoa marshmallow filled with real milk chocolate. So now you can make smores even when you have no chocolate. Just grab some cookies and squeeze a melted double chocolate marshmallow in between for the ultimate campfire or backyard grill snack.

 Stuffed Puffs® ingeniously solves the problem of messy melted chocolate by putting the chocolate inside the marshmallow so the chocolate melts while the marshmallow toasts, giving you the perfect smores every time. No more worries about the sun melting your chocolate bars. No more worries about dad eating up the chocolate bars before you grill the marshmallows as the chocolate is included with the sweet marshmallows.






 So grab the bags of marshmallows and head outside for a day of fun. You could even set up a tent in the backyard and campout. Dad can fire up the grill or light the fire pit. Then the kids can have some awesome fun shooting marshmallows and eating marshmallows. After the fun is over, the kids can spend the night outside in the tents. Summer fun is not canceled, it has been relocated to the backyard.
