I think Nerf guns are pretty cool, much better than the potato guns I had as a kid! The one downside is that they are actually too good, they fire the foam darts so far that most of them end up in the neighbour’s garden or lost forever at the back of the hedge.
With that in mind I created some cool paper targets, something to focus the boys’ aim, while still keeping things fun. They worked a like a dream – less bullets lost, and for a while at least, my oldest boy found it more fun than shooting his younger brother!
NERF GUN PARTY ACTIVITY
They are also perfect for children’s parties. Just pre-prepare the materials and have the kids colour in their targets before assembling them. Then, one at a time, let each child set them up on a table (or the floor) a set distance away, around 6-10 ft. After that, let them shoot at their targets until they have hit them all over (reloading if necessary) – but keep track of the number of shots, the winner is the child to use the least number of bullets. If there is a tie, organise a deciding shoot-off!
How to turn these awesome nerf gun target ideas into reality
It’s an easy project to make, just print out the artwork (link below) and follow these instructions (or just improvise!).
1) Colour artwork – just start assembling
2) Black and white artwork – have fun colouring them in first
3) Collectable instructions – stick them on the fridge
