DIY Nerf Targets Party Idea
This post was sponsored by Kroger. All opinions expressed in the post are my own and not those of Kroger.
Our family is all about Nerf or Nothin’ and we’re having fun with Nerf Fest this month! Nerf Fest celebrates everything Nerf and they’re encouraging kids to join in on the action with #NerfNation. To kick it off, I created a fun backyard party with these easy DIY Nerf Targets that the kids can make themselves.
How To Set Your Backyard Nerf Party
Everything you need to throw together a Nerf party can be found at your local Kroger and Fred Meyer stores. Nerf even has your furry friends covered with a variety of durable dog toys. I’m calling that a win for the whole family.
I put together this backyard party with some of our favorite Nerf product picks from Nerf Fest, some pre-made cupcakes from the bakery section and, best of all, you can even pick up the DIY Nerf Targets supplies at Kroger or Fred Meyer too! Our neighborhood kids had a blast crafting these targets and then playing with the different Nerf products.

Even our pup got into the action for Nerf Fest! I’m prepared for an ambush at any given moment now that we’ve brought home some AWESOME new toys. Here are some of our favorite Nerf product picks:
These are fun because they’re unexpected, compact and perfect for little hands! Nerf blasters,
from Hasbro, deliver the ultimate in blaster performance for Nerf battles. Start blasting almost anywhere, anytime with the micro-sized Nerf N-Strike NanoFire blasters! As a mom, I appreciate that they only fire one dart at a time (that means less darts to keep track of).
Nerf Mega Bulldog
The Nerf Mega Bulldog blaster is part of the AccuStrike Series that features darts designed for greater accuracy. I love that it offers a storage spot for 3 darts on the side. My youngest definitely felt like a Bulldog on the battlefield with this fun toy!
Nerf Zombiestrike Nailbitter
You know what’s hot with kids right now? Zombies! Make sure your survival kit includes the Nerf Zombie Strike Survival System Nailbiter blaster. The blaster’s 8-dart clip automatically indexes to the next dart and stays attached to the blaster. The Nailbiter blaster is designed with fun details that reflect the Zombie Strike story of survivors who are creating battle gear with parts they scrounge from different places.
NERF DOG 30IN VORTEX CHAIN TUG
The Nerf Dog 30in Vortex Chain Tug will entertain your dog for hours on end! Play “tug of war” with your best friend, or enjoy an action-packed session of toss and retrieve. You can really see and feel the durability of the Nerf dog products too!
How To Make Your DIY Nerf Targets
What You’ll Need:
- Glue Stick or Tacky Glue
- Large Blue Paper Party Plates
- Medium Orange Paper Party Plates
- Blue Cardstock
- Orange Plastic Party Cups
- Circular Template (Anything with a small circle base will do – l used a hot sauce bottle)
To start making your DIY Nerf Targets, use your pencil to trace small circles on your blue cardstock. These will be the center of your target, so cut out one for each number of targets you’re making. Glue it to the center of the orange plate.
Next, glue the orange plate to the center of the large blue plate. Secure the target on the front of an orange plastic party cup, using a generous amount of glue. Press and hold firmly until the glue sets.
You can place your targets on stairs, railing or even just a table. The Nerf possibilities and fun are endless! We gave each one of our targets a different point value. Whoever got to 100 points first won the Nerf battle. Every kid got to pick their own toy too!
So get your family in on the fun and head to your local Kroger or Fred Meyer location to celebrate Nerf Fest! Share the fun by uploading your Nerf photos onto social media by using the #NerfNation hashtag.
