Nerf Guns for a Party

The first thing you’ll need in order to throw a Nerf party is of course, some Nerf guns! It may be tempting to tell all the kids to “bring your own Nerf gun” to the party and leave it at that, but that doesn’t make for a great party for a few reasons.

So here’s the solution – provide the Nerf Blasters as party favors. Depending on your budget and how many kids you’ll have coming to the party, we recommend going with one of the two following Nerf guns without batteries – the Strongarm Blaster or the Jolt Blaster.

One more important thing to consider before you pull the trigger on your Nerf gun party favors – buy all the same color when in doubt. While it might seem cool to you to buy an event number of Green and Red Blasters for team-based Nerf games, Green might be a much cooler color to the kids which will lead to fighting over who gets which color. Again, more drama we don’t need!


Nerf Darts for Your Party

A must-have for your Nerf party, even if kids are bringing their own Nerf guns, is an ample supply of Nerf darts. You can buy 200 spare Nerf darts for under $10, so for that price you might as well pick up two. Foam darts can tear or get damaged pretty easily, so you’ll want to make sure you don’t run out in the middle of the party.

Kids can take some home with them as party of their party favor package so you’re not stuck with 400 extra Nerf darts!

So once you get your Nerf Blasters squared away, it’s time to play! The kids at your party might be happy enough to run around and shooting each other at random which is perfectly fun! If you’re looking for some more organized games, here’s a few Nerf party ideas.

Most of all, just try to facilitate fair and fun play so everyone has a good time at the party!


Nerf Party Venue Ideas

The ideal location may be someone’s backyard if you have a house that’s big enough. Nerf wars inside often lead to injuries and damages to your home from too many kids running around in a small area.

If you don’t have a large backyard, you can check out your nearest National, State, or local public park which usually has pavilions available to rent for a party with plenty of open fields and space for kids to run around and scream.
