Plastic cups make awesome Nerf targets, and when the cups are swinging, they’re even more fun!
We have LOTS of random PVC pipe pieces in our house and garage from all of our many PVC projects, so Aidan built a couple of frames to hang the plastic cups from. Here’s the basic design:
We taped string to the tops of the cups with packing tape, and it has been holding up pretty well. We added point values to the cups. The boys call out their shots (Oooh! I got a 50!) but no one really keeps score.
This game was my idea, but I wasn’t sure if the boys would like it. Well, it has turned out to be their favorite Nerf target out of all the ones we’ve made! They have been playing with it all week.
Over the course of the week, it grew from one small setup into this:
That’s a card table stacked on top of our Lego table, in case you’re wondering! They have a combination of swinging cups and stacked cups. SO much fun.
