This dent is from a marshmallow.

Paintballs are always a good choice. Looks like the rest of the voters agree.

I put a handful of pistol-size paintballs into my marble gun, get a nice scatter shot splatter on the fence.

I would go with mini-marshmallows. And make sure the "device" has less muzzle energy than a person's arm. Say muzzle velocities of less than 100 feet/sec.
