The Snack Blaster
(AKA T-Shirt Launcher or Candy Cannon)
Learn how to make a easy air cannon to launch candy or T-Shirts!
I have a candy dropper system from a previous kitemakers retreat. I have used it regularly but when there is no wind.......what do you do? When I saw a candy cannon in use in Saint Honore I knew!
I wanted something a little more compact and easy to use with a standard tire pump. The parts are simple and it goes together relatively easy. I am making modifications to this unit after field use in 2017.
Assisting me will be George Wright from Granger, Indiana also a member of the Windjammers Team. George also came up with a few extra mods to the project.
It is a blast!
