Nerf Gun Birthday Party

Kids are obsessed with nerf guns these days, especially my own!  So, I knew a Nerf gun birthday party was going to happen eventually.  We celebrated Jackson’s 7th birthday the week of Thanksgiving so it was a little hectic squeezing a birthday party in, especially when I was hosting!  But it was going to happen or not.  Nerf gun birthday party he wanted!  It turned out really cute.  Since it was cold outside, we held all the birthday activities in my unfinished basement with cake and food upstairs.  No pictures…it’s just not a pretty basement.  But a nerf gun birthday party is really perfect for an outside backyard party.  And since we couldn’t do that, we had to get creative.  I was a concerned with kids getting hit with the soft bullets in close quarters, so part of their party favors were the safety glasses, which I made sure everyone wear.

To make the nerf gun birthday party fair during games, instead of having party goers bring their own nerf guns, I instead gave each child their owe to make it fair and as a take home party favor.  I put a variety of bullets in a plastic bag and used velcro so they could attach it to their “felt vests” when they are in battle.  Once the children all arrived we headed downstairs and they warmed up with stretches and boot camp exercises.  Then they practiced on target shooting bullseye boards that we painted in the party colors.   Then they headed over to the shooting range, which was a large chalkboard that we had drawn body silhouettes prior.  They used the suction bullets to try and shoot the vinyl squares that we taped for the body zones.  After, balloons were hung from the ceiling and the children tried to shoot the balloons down.  Last but not least, we had an obstacle course where the kids tested everything they had learn.  After we came up for food and cake!  And then the last 10-15 minutes, we bundled up and the children played capture the flag outside with their nerf guns.  The felt vests worked great with the velcro bullets!  Phew!  It’s all about keeping 10 boys entertained!
