A Nerf War Birthday Party

Our Stan the man turns 12 this Wednesday which means it is his year for a BIG birthday party!  We actually celebrated it a couple of weeks ago at a local park with a Nerf War theme for 16 tween boys. Oh my goodness!

It was a huge success :)

With that many boys (and wanting to avoid a Lord of the Flies craziness),  we supplied the Nerf guns and tons of bullets, eye protection (in case any parent was concerned), and handkerchief for the boys.

Stan used some, old pallets (two per team), and we had an ammo refill station for each team, (Team Orange and Team Blue).

After playing a few games of war, they also had Capture the Flag, hiking in the woods on the park trails, and a couple of ladders set up for target practice.

We served hot dogs, chips, and water & blue Gatorade for dinner.

We used a local bakery for the cake.

The entire party was a blast (excuse the pun)!  All the boys enjoyed themselves, (we heard a ton of positive feedback from parents).

The best part for me??  I left.  Ha!  David made a special meal for all the dads who ended up staying, so it was definitely a guys' party ;)

(PS - I got all the ideas off of Pinterest!)

Happy, happy birthday to our little man!!!  Wishing you abundant blessings throughout the year.  We love you!!

Dad & Mom

  3. How creative of you! My children went through the Nerf gun stage, but I would not have thought that it could be used as a party theme.

  4. What a cake!!! And his smile is beaming! Happy birthday to your boy!
