It’s summertime! Finding safe and fun summer activities for kids is important to parents, as we want to keep them happily entertained and hold off boredom for as long as possible.
No matter where you are (backyard, beach, park or campground), there are plenty of ways to have fun and make new memories!

Nerf makes it easy to have fun with the N-Strike Elite Demolisher 2-in-1 which can blast big missiles with pump-fire action or can unleash a powerful motorized barrage of mini missiles.
Here are some ideas for Nerf blasting fun:
Stack up a pyramid of lightweight empty cans and fire away to try to knock them over.
Clip some zombie posters to a backyard fence for target practice.
Set up a bunch of wide-mouth containers or buckets, then have kids stand behind a line and see if they can shoot a missile into each of them.
Hide behind trees or bushes and stealth-fire missiles at opponents.
