Step 5: Other ideas for a fun Nerf party
Note: if you do marshmallow shooters there is a lot more prep to do (i.e. pre cutting the pvc) and it's way more messy.
It's also fun to make arm bands for everyone so there are two teams (we did an "orange team" and a "blue team"). We bought everyone inexpensive eye protective from the dollar store too.
Decorating the cake can be done with a mini shooter and some darts. There are tons of cake decorating ideas out there so I won't go into detail here. Safe to say, most kids don't care about what the cake looks like so you can go crazy with fondant and such but if you're short for time I'd suggest to use your energy for other stuff. I did a fondant cake for youngest son's party and it was too much trouble for what it was worth (he barely noticed). :)
NOTE: If you don't have your own Nerf arsenal then you can actually rent them from this neato online service: www.nerfrental.com
