How to Play Hunger Games Nerf Wars

My family LOVES The Hunger Games series. So much that we dressed in costume to see the premier of the Mockingjay. Check out my blog “Why My Family Dressed Up to See The Hunger Games (and why we’ll do it again.)

But one of our absolute favorite pastimes is playing what we dubbed, “The Hunger Game Nerf Wars.” It has the basic concept of the game is the same as the movie. We clear out our living room, move damageable objects or things we can slip on. You could play outdoors, too.

How to Play Hunger Game Nerf Wars:

1) Get some Nerf guns.

Avoid disc ones…they hurt. (Click images to view on Amazon.com*)

2) Invest in LOTS of Nerf bullets

Especially if you have a biter…you know the kids that bite off the tips of the bullets.

3) Get “shields” and “grenades”

We use couch pillows and Nerf soft footballs. We also put shoulder bags and other items that are useful for carrying items or defending ourselves. We also allow “health packs” to revive fallen Tributes (especially since the littlest ones cry if they are “out” of the game too long!)

4) Put everything in the center of “battlefield” in the “cornucopia”

Take your guns, ammo, shields and grenades and lump them in a pile.

5) Everyone gets equal distances away from “cornucopia”

Since we do ours indoors, equal distance is relative.

6) Someone calls “start”

Parents are the best at preventing false starts.

7) Everyone runs to grab all the items they can before taking cover.

This is probably the most difficult and most exciting part of the entire game.

8) Form alliances.

You can be Katniss and Rue or you can just…

9) “Kill” everyone that you can

In the end, only ONE can be declared the victor!

10) Winner is the last Tribute standing.

May the odds be ever in your favor!

And don’t you just love this Hunger Games necklace…

Or this coffee cup?

Or Lego Katniss?

Playing Hunger Games Nerf Wars is a great way to take a cult classic movie and have a little fun with your family. Collect ammo and guns, but this blog gives some more tips and rules for playing. May the odds be ever in your favor!

10 Truths You Need Teach Your Children About the End Times

Revelations isn't a book that often gets discussed in children's church. For good reason, it's all kinds of scary. The horse that carries death and destruction. Boils. People that want to kill themselves but can't. Not really the happy picture that most Sunday school teachers paint with their felt-board characters, right? But with times being as they are, there are some essentials that you MUST teach your children so that they will not fall prey to the lies of the enemy. The Bible says that "even the elect could be deceived." I hope and pray that by teaching some of these Biblical truths to your children, they will be saved from the coming "turning away." Whether you believe in a pre-tribulation, mid-tribulation, or post-tribulation rapture, these ten things are something every child should be aware of.
