Party Recap

My son wanted to have a Nerf party. We decided on a number of training activities which culminated in a Nerf War. It was an incredibly fun party with everyone in hysterics. All the adults ended up getting involved in the action too. I highly recommend this theme!

    Without a doubt, the most fun was had during the all out war with everyone (kids and parents) participating!

    I just bought webbing and sewed them in a big loop that slung over the kids' shoulders. Then I cut a slightly smaller piece of the webbing and just stitched a line/seam with enough space between each one to hold a bullet (it helps to put one in so you leave a big enough space that you can get it in and out easily). They were super easy and very quick to make! I just bought bulk bullets off eBay to fill them up! Hope that helps! :)

    I love this idea. What is the target made out of? Are your props cardboard or wood? How did you make them stand? Thank you very much!!

    The net was called a 'Camo Net' - it's used for bootcamps etc. I just searched for one on eBay. The one I found was pretty cheap too. I went to the local hardware store and bought small sheets of MDF which I then painted with Acrylic Paint. My husband also got some pieces of acrylic (the plastic) to add to some of the targets. My husband just nailed some pickets (like you use for gardens) onto the back and hammered them into the ground. I bought the dog tags and slap bracelets off eBay. They were inexpensive.

    They are actually lollies that are sherbet in a container that looks like fruit (the pineapple ones look like grenades). I get these from Kmart in the Lolly section

    As always, thanks for your quick responses Leanne. I'm officially jealous, these "lollies" must be a local item because I've googled high and low and we don't have anything like them in NJ :).

    Did you make the bandoliers or buy them? Can you tell me where you got them or how you made them?

    I made them by sewing them. I just bought webbing from a sewing store and cut them long enough to fit diagonally over the kids. Then I cut an extra piece of webbing and sewed it to leave spaces for nerf bullets - make sure it's a bit looser than exactly fitting the bullet or it will be hard to get in and out. I just sewed horizontal strips on the webbing. Hope that helps!
