Nerf Gun War

The beginning of every school year, we have a BACK TO SCHOOL BASH for our youth group. Last year, Joe thought it would be fun to have a Nerf Gun war, and boy was it a HIT! The kids loved it and really got into the game. We do a capture the flag theme so they are in teams and using nerf as their weapons. Last year the boys didn't go, so we didn't have to worry about them wanting to participate, because they were at my parents. Well this year my boys were home and were convinced they were big enough to play with the High School kids! I fought them on this for a while, but finally I just gave in and told everyone to please be careful with them. They ended up doing GREAT! Joshua ended up being the official guy to tag his team back in, (once you are hit you have to stay where you are until a team member tags you in). Joe Braden actually won a game for his team slipping through the kids unnoticed to grab the other teams flag. It was a great experience for the boys and it was so good of the teens to allow it. I mean seriously these kids get so into it they modify the guns and buy machine nerf! It is just CRAZY!! Here are a few pictures, excuse the quality, I used my phone because I didn't dare take my camera into that WAR!
